Hi friends! It’s time for the third installment of the DIY wedding floral tests that I created for my sister’s upcoming wedding, using stunning blooms from Flower Muse. Hooray!
Over the past couple of weeks I tried my hand at DIY Bridal Bouquets and DIY Boutonnieres and Corsages (so much fun)…and this time I tested out a design for the Flower Girl Baskets. Since the two flower girls are quite young and might struggle to throw petals in an orderly fashion, my sister decided that she’d like them to carry flower filled baskets instead (a brilliant plan if you ask me). My sister lives in Michigan, and I don’t have easy access to her wedding supplies, so I just picked up a few small baskets from my local craft store to test out the arrangement concept. The baskets ended up being a little too heavy for toddlers to carry easily, so for the actual day we’ll be scaling the size down a bit. We don’t want to have two little girls toppling over in the isle! In any event, I really love the way these baskets turned out, and how they mirror the floral palette that my sister has chosen in such a delicate way. And best of all…they utilize the smaller blooms and greens that were leftover from creating the bouquets, so we are really getting a lot out of the beautiful Flower Muse florals that we ordered (perfect for budget conscious brides).
DIY Flower-filled flower Girl Basket
For this arrangement I used the following blooms and greens from Flower Muse:
- “Free Spirit” Pink Peach Garden Roses | A breathtaking statement rose
- White Majolica Spray Roses | Some of the most beautiful roses I’ve ever seen
- Sweet Peas (white, peach, and lilac) | by request
- Queen Anne’s Lace (white) | by request
- Lisianthus (light purple) | by request
- Assorted Greens
Even though these baskets were created with a wedding in mind, you could easily use the same process with any deep vase-like vessel or basket to create gorgeous arrangements for your next party or to give as a thoughtful gift.
