I enjoyed researching the last post on flowergirls and ringbearers so much that I thought I’d continue the theme! Today I’m going to have a look at some vintage-styled alternatives to a traditional flowergirl ‘basket’.
When thinking of what your flowergirl might carry, generally it’s something that can hold petals or whatever you are wanting your flowergirl to ‘scatter’. Or it may be that she doesn’t need to scatter anything so she could be holding anything really (which is a whole other post in itself!).
But today I’ll focus on baskets or containers for your flowergirl. It depends on whether you are wanting rustic or vintage – for rustic, think woven or wicker baskets, birds nests and tin pails or a little birdcage. For vintage old vintage tins, elaborate lace and beaded baskets, vintage handbags or little suitcases spring to mind. Here are some ideas I found on the internet.
