The easiest way to decorate a wedding basket is with ribbons and bows. There are also alternatives to traditional baskets.
A flower girl's basket is easily decorated by winding a wired ribbon around the handle and decorating the base of each handle with a ribbon fashioned into a bow. Ribbons from organza or satin are ideal, as both are rich fabrics. The color of the ribbons should match the color theme of the wedding or can match the bridal bouquet in the absence of a color theme. A flower ball, also known as a kissing ball, makes a lovely alternative to a flower basket, and it is lightweight and easily held. A flower ball is made by inserting flowers into a round ball of netted foam and adding ribbon for the handle.
