Pampas grass is a popular decorating element, as it adds a natural and elegant touch to any room or outdoor space. Here are a few steps to prepare your pampas grass for decorating:
- Cut and prune the plumes: Cut the base of the stems of your pampas grass. Cut each grass at a different length to at depth and texture to the arrangement.
- Remove any debris: Once the plumes are cut, use your hands to gently remove any debris, such as leaves or twigs which might still be connected at the base.
- Fluff the plumes: Leave pampas grass plumes in sunlight for a few hours to help them regain a more full and fluffy look.
- Arrange the plumes: Arrange the plumes in a vase or container of your choice, or use them in a bouquet or wreath. You can also use them in a garland or as a wall hanging. If decorating using a vase, make sure you use the right-sized vase for the type of bouquet you purchase. See our blog on choosing the right vase for more information.
- Once you are happy with the style of the arrangement you a generous misting of hairspray to help minimise fallout.
- Keep arrangement away from direct sunlight: Pampas grass should be kept away from direct sunlight to prevent discoloration or wilting.
