I have petals and dresses for my flower girls but im at a loss for the basket. i see a lot of them in stores and i can't find anything i like. Does anyone know of a cool alternative to the usual basket?

    Hi Sabrina! I was having a hard time with finding flower girl baskets that I liked also! I opted to do pomander balls instead.

    There's a website I found called Oriental Trading used to be called marry me. They have a flower girl basket that's looks like it's made of Moss. It's really cuuuute. The website is wedding madness overload. Everything you never Knew u wanted.

    I went to Hobby Lobby and found this basket for $4. They had a ton of options in their basket decor section. They had a wedding section with "flower girl baskets" but it was the same padded white satin basket that's everywhere.

    What kind of basket are you looking for? I had white metal pails that I got at the dollar store, glued some lace ribbon around the middle and added some ribbons on the sides. Also, you can get the laser cut little baskets from Target that are only about a dollar and tie a ribbon through the holes and some flowers if you want. Easy and cheap but trés chic

    You can make a basket shaped like that out of Vintage doilies, add a cute ribbon of your choice and they look super cute!

    Flower girl baskets? 6My flower girls will carry these. This is my inspiration picture. My actual bags look nearly identical, just a little smaller since my flower girls are pretty small.

    A pail? A small knit or crochet one? Maybe an old
    hat that was a deceased family members?

    They’re on Etsy for around $30. I made my own though. The cost of ribbon and the little bags were $4. They have a 4 pack of small bags just like this for $2 at hobby lobby and I purchased the ivory ribbon for another $2. Just remove the existing handles and then add ‘petals’ with iron on vinyl. If you don’t have a Cricut machine for that like I do you can easily have someone who owns one do it for $2-$5.
