Ok, ok, so Moss isn’t a flower, but it is a plant worth talking about! I love the look of moss and all the ways it can be used for weddings and events! Would you consider using moss at your wedding? Maybe you will by the time you finish this post!
Moss would be perfect for Rustic, Whimsical, Modern, Romantic, Woodland or Winter Weddings, just to name a few. 🙂
Let’s take a look at some of the ways moss can be used, then we’ll go over how to care for it…. Hint: It’s Easy!
Moss makes great table runners! Dress it up with white hydrangeas and orchids for a Modern setting or add fun wildflowers for a Rustic or Woodland feel. The options are endless. At home, use a runner of fresh moss with white candles for a crisp, eco-chic table setting.
A Mossy Monogram would look great on your reception doors, on a sign in table, on the wall behind your head table… anywhere that needs a special touch!
And we can’t forget about table numbers and Escort Card Displays! Learn how to create this Moss Escort Card Box at Elizabeth Anne Designs.
Those are just a few of the great ways to incorporate moss into your wedding or event! Now, lets take a look at how to care for your wholesale bulk Moss.
At FiftyFlowers, we carry 3 different types of Moss, Sheet Moss, Mood Moss, and Spanish Moss. Our Sheet Moss, like the name describes, comes in “sheets” of moss, while the Mood Moss, comes in a more rounded “clump” like form, and both can vary in shades of green. Our Spanish Moss has a more thread like appearance and can range in color from silvery to light green. No matter what type of Moss you prefer, the care instructions are easy!
We recommend you receive your Moss 2 days before your event. Upon receiving, open up the box and inspect them. Do not remove the Moss until you are ready use. If you have refrigeration available, store them in refrigeration in the original box. If you do not, you can store them overnight in an AIR-CONDITIONED room. If you are planning to store for a longer period of time we highly recommend refrigeration. Every couple days, or if the Moss seems dry, use a spray bottle to lightly mist your Moss.
That’s it! So, weather you’re having an Eco-Chic Event or a Woodland Wedding, Moss may be just the green you’re looking for!
