For my sister’s wedding we didn’t do anything to the Flower Girl basket…we ran out of time =) My niece looked so darned cute coming down the aisle that nobody even noticed that the basket didn’t have ribbons or bows. If you like the basket…just leave it as is…as far as I am concerned…decorations are optional =)

Maybe glue moss around the top of it. Or you can spray paint the whole thing ivory then add the bow and flower to the painted basket.

Hmmm…maybe you can paint the basket white or ivory and then use the ribbon to wrap the handle and put a bow on either side where the handle meets the basket? You can also cover the top rim of the basket with the same ribbon. That will add a little punch of color.

Something like this:

Omg, I’m so glad somebody else has addressed this. I think the regular satin flower girl baskets are so…boring!! And they don’t look basket-y! I think they just look weird. I was at the point of just having my flower girls carry flowers, but this has given me a great idea. I think I like the spraypainted white one.

For yours, I don’t think I would do the daisies on the outside. It would take away from the simplicity of it. I really like the twigs idea. It looks very fallish and fun.

I think your daisy and ribbon idea would look awesome!!!

You might try to find a large silk gerber daisy at Michaels or Joanns and then wire it with floral wire to the basket and then add a big ribbon bow in your colors or small ribbon bows around the handle and rim of the basket.
