The most traditional form of flowers that a Flower Girl takes on is a basket of flower petals. This basket can be a simple straw one, or if a fancier or more elegant look is desired, it can be wrapped in ribbons. Sometimes the basket is decorated even further with flowers, crystals, or embroidery. By having the Flower Girl toss flower petals out of the basket as she walks down the aisle, it creates a small pop of color across the aisle runner in anticipation for the Bride to walk in.

If you prefer to keep your aisle clean, consider having your Flower Girl walk with a single flower. By choosing something beautiful that coordinates with your color palette, she will look perfect as she walks in front of the Bride. You will probably want to use a flower that is somewhat sturdy, like a Rose or Sunflower, Gerber Daisy, and by mixing it with a few pieces of greenery and securing it together with a nice ribbon, your Flower Girl will look like she's carrying a small bouquet.
