Flower Girl -- Flower Girl Baskets


Embroidered Flower Girl Basket

Flower girls are darling, sweet, and often unpredictable -- but usually in an adorable way. They range in age from about 3-8 years old and most often carry a beautiful flower girl basket full of rose petals. During Greek and Roman times -- these little princesses would carry bundles of grain and herbs, which was thought to aid in fertility.

Flower girl baskets became a tradition during the Victorian Era and that tradition continues today.  The flower girl dress is most often white -- to represent purity. The ring of flowers - that the little lady wears on her head - symbolizes eternity. The flower petals being scattered - just as the grain in Roman times - is used to represent fertility. Red rose petals are scattered to represent the deep love of the couple. Many brides choose flower petals other than red to either fit with the theme or their personal preference.
