There are so many fun ways for flower girls to be, well, flower girls! No need to limit their flowers to petals in a basket. Photographer Christina McNeill teamed up with florist Kiana Underwood from  Naked Bouquet to bring us some darling ideas, from pretty head wreaths to sweet nosegays.

For this French wire basket, Kiana incorporated fruit to give them an organic quality and some texture.

A small bouquet of peach garden roses is lovely for a junior bridesmaid.

Says Kiana, “The garland, with garden roses, eucalyptus, astilbe, and smoke can be used in so many different ways, and makes an amazing statement piece when carried by one, two or three flower girls.”

No reason wrist corsages should be limited to mothers and grandmothers – they’re perfectly sweet for flower girls, too!

Queensland tulips add sophistication to this pomander and nosegay.

For something especially simple, but still sweet, flower girls can carry a single stem like one perfect peony.

How’s this for a twist on the traditional flower girl cone? An ice cream cone filled with gardenia blooms and leaves!

So sweet! Which ideas do you love most for your flower girls? And of course, a big thanks to Christina McNeill and Naked Bouquet for sharing these darling and creative ideas with us. (By the way – don’t miss Christina’s brand new website!)
