Pam­pas grass was the main focal “flower” for a recent wed­ding at The Ter­ranea Resort in Ran­cho Palos Verdes, California.

Virtual Planning Works

We had nev­er met the cou­ple in per­son. All of the plan­ning was done vir­tu­al­ly, but the bride and groom were super hap­py with our work that day! We use a soft­ware pro­gram called “Details Soft­ware” that is won­der­ful for plan­ning with clients who live close by but also remote. For this cou­ple, Casey met with them on the phone and then sent detailed updates through the soft­ware. It was flaw­less. The bride chose to make her brides­maids bou­quets and bou­ton­nieres, but we made the rest includ­ing her gor­geous bou­quet you can see in the groom’s Insta­gram trib­ute below to his beau­ti­ful bride.

This arch dis­play was com­plete­ly foam free. We also used a chick­en wire base to cre­ate the tall posts that lined the aisle and then flanked the sweet­heart table. All of the cen­ter­pieces can be reused. If you want to learn how to make a cen­ter­piece, we show you how in our Online Flo­ral Design Series, Flower Arrang­ing Fri­daysYou can also just sign up for the Pam­pas Grass Cen­ter­piece class by itself to learn how to make them and where to source the grasses

NOTE: When work­ing with pam­pas, be sure no live flames will be around the dis­plays as they are extreme­ly flam­ma­ble and use pre­served pam­pas if local con­ser­va­tion groups require it since pam­pas is not native to North Amer­i­ca and can spread easily.
