Most of my life has been heavily influenced by my love for children. Â I’ve been a babysitter as long as I can remember and a full time nanny for quite some time. Â Since this has been my life, I have “accumulated” quite a few little ones in my life. Â Five girls to be exact. Â I had to stop myself at 5-or I would have had more flower girls than our entire wedding party. Â We have my two nieces, a young cousin, and two other little ones that I’ve been taking care of for a long time.Â
For flower girl dresses, I had to fight the norm yet again. Â Flower girl dresses really creep me out. Â I don’t like the idea of little girls looking like brides. Â I mean, I really really really don’t like it. Â SO, I was on a hunt to find non-flower girl dresses. Â And I found them! Â Through Etsy, of course. Â I found Catherine of It’s a Party, Let’s Wear Hats. Â She created the cutest flower girl ballerina outfits!
Cute, huh? Â Then my mom and I made theÂ pomanderÂ Â balls for them to carry. Â Here is the finished product:
We’re still tweaking the pomander balls a little. Â I want them to be fuller with a few more feathers! Â I’m really happy with how they turned out, and I think the girls are going to look so sweet on the farm looking like little fairies!
Are any of you ladies doing something unique/creative with your flower girl’s outfits? Â I have seen a wedding where a grown man was the “flower girl”. Â I thought that was absolutely hilarious!
