Hello everyone! I could really use some help/advice!!
I want to do green moss table runners for the reception. I have no idea where to start or what to get. How does it work? Do you get real or fake? And where do I find rolls of this stuff?? My tables are long so I will need a lot of this stuff.
Any help would be much appreciated!

@RadiantRed: Michaels sells mats like this, but I would probably look online, maybe at craft or floral supply stores. I would probably go with fake because if you go with the real stuff you will have to deal with watering it and getting dirt on your tables.

I would get fake because it looks more green and even IMO, like the photo. I have a small terrarium with real moss and it’s more brown. Like PP said, you also have to worry about it being hydrated. Real moss can also smell like dirt, which may be unpleasant. The fake is also easier to work with.

Definatey fake. And even that is likely to be messy. But real would be a complete mess! People have to eat at those tables!!!

I actually used a LOT of moss in my wedding, and I used REAL. It really wasn’t a mess and I liked the SLIGHT earthy smell it had to it, but I had an outdoor wedding, and I only used moss balls on the table, and they were VERY green.
I also used real moss in the nest and it was a bit dry.

Thank you ladies, fake it is! Where do I find rolls of this stuff though? It will be an outside wedding but I sure do not want it to smell bad!
That is beautiful @sweetarmd
