Give your flower girls an oversized bouquet of wild, white blooms and vibrant greens, swathed neatly with a bow of lace.

That freshly-picked feel is important, as is that sturdy shape that will make those pretty blooms last a little bit longer. 

The effect? Oh-so-sweet, elegant and beautifully delicate.
