Popular Pretty Pampas Grass Ceremony Circles Made Easier
If you’re designing for weddings or events today, you’re hearing the words pampas grass and ceremony circle, often together. 

Glance through Pinterest and you’ll see pampas grass wedding d├ęcor and circle ceremony designs topping the trends.

And why not? It’s a great combination. 

But as a beautiful rose has thorns, pampas is not universally welcome, at least on the west coast. Plus designing, transporting and installing large circular floor arrangements with a reliable water source has its challenges.

Obstacles? Yes. Unsolvable? Absolutely not.

This week, Christine Cater of Christine Cater Wedding and Event Florals in Carmel shares with Smithers-Oasis Design Director Sharon McGukin AIFD, AAF, PFCI (and us!) how to overcome the challenges along with shortcuts to make ceremony circle designs easier.

Oh, yes—and a dozen or so photos of more of her pretty wedding designs. And she clearly believes in pretty.
