I am quite late with this post today as I have thoroughly enjoyed my day off from work.
Do you ever make your own arrangements? centerpieces? Well? I do! And I love to use spring green reindeer moss (available in gray also) as the base and in the “holes” of any arrangement.
Not inexpensive at $22.50 per bag, it is available at a local nursery, The Garden Gates on Metairie Road, but one bag does go a long way.
I recently used some of the moss in my large concrete shell on the entry table in the parlor.
I also used the reindeer moss in two cast iron urns holding faux lemons in the kitchen.
I start by placing a large “clump” in the container and spreading it out. I continue to pile the reindeer moss until I feel enough is enough. I place the objects atop the moss then fill in with smaller amounts to fill those gaps.
- The reindeer moss stays soft. If the air is extremely dry it will harden some, but returns to normal softness with the return of normal humidity.
- The moss is non-toxic and flame retardant.
- It is colorfast as the color will maintain its original beauty.
- You can attach to a Styrofoam base using green pins or a glue gun.
I prefer to use this product over the gray Spanish moss.
Reindeer moss, y’all!
