I was up at Martha's home in Maine a few weekends ago, and I couldn't have been more inspired. Everything was so green and lush, maybe because they got something like 49 straight days of rain!
Then I was thinking about how you could have a gorgeous green wedding using moss and ferns if you live in the city or somewhere that doesn't get as much rain. Enter the Macho Fern. I had never seen anything like this.
Martha brought these up from a nursery near her Bedford home. This thing was enormous—perfect for an impact-making altar piece. And the best part about it is that it's affordable! At only $10 each, we put five plants together in this pot. So, yes, you can do this for just $50! Ok, so you have a bunch of these Macho Ferns around as your big arrangements, then add some mossy maidenhair fern, Japanese painted fern centerpieces, or place card holders like this. Then add a cake like this and tablecloths like this from my dessert table buffet. And voila—a green, mossy, ferny wedding!
