Plus, we’ve teamed up with Alternative Journals to give away one of these flower girl basket alternatives to one lucky reader! What is the giveaway prize, you ask? Read on to find out!

3. Banner

Another type of sign is a banner, which is one terrific option when you have two flower girls. Each can hold a side and walk down the aisle together. This banner is handmade by Little Zebra’s Boutique.

Lace Tambourine for the Flower Girl

We love this lace tambourine! It is today’s #HANDMADEADAY find and we spotted it over at Alternative Journals, a shop where we always find something new to admire. Why have your flower girl toss petals when she can play one of these down the aisle? It’s way more fun (and there’s no cleanup required). Awesome! There’s a floral patterned one, too, below.

Lace Tambourine

This tambourine measures 6″ in size and features lace (or floral fabric).
