We’ve made a step-by-step guide on how to make the most out of your pampas, what vases to use, and some secret tips on how to make your Mowgli & Moon pampas, extra fluffy!!
01 - Buy Our Pampas
An obvious starter! You can of course buy your pampas grass from elsewhere, these tips and tricks will still help you get the style you want. What we will say, is we searched far and wide for a top-notch pampas supplier, and we are super proud to bring this level of quality to you. And no, we aren't just saying that!

02 - Secret Weapon #1
Be super careful with this part, it's what counts! So, grab your hairdryer, and on a low, cold to warm setting, blow the air top to bottom on your pampas. Hold the top of the stem and carefully twist the pampas grass as you give it a much needed blow-dry! The reason we advise top to bottom, is because this will help the pampas separate from its "packed position" and naturally drop into its original shape. Repeat this process until you reach your desired cloudiness and styling! Remember, be careful with this step! If you use a powerful setting or are heavy handed with your styling, your pampas could end up looking more scruffy, than fluffy :)
03 - Arrangement
Now, let's bring it all together. Choosing a vase for your pampas is super important, as wide neck vases can encourage your stems to sit around the outside, and create the illusion of an empty middle. We advise using a bottle neck vase or one with a slightly slimmer neck as these really compliment the natural shape of pampas, and give the illusion of a nice thick, full finish. If you have your heart set on a vase and it's got a wider neck or perhaps it’s not as tall as you'd like, don't worry! You can always cut your pampas stems shorter to match your vase, and tie them together with a bit of jute twine or string. We also stock small and mini versions of pampas, along with bunny tails! So get creative, pampas doesn't always need to be on it's own! Make your own arrangement and be proud of it :) Click here to see our vases!
04 - Secret Weapon #2
Okay, so you've bought, fluffed, styled and potted your pampas! Let's compliment your hard work with another secret weapon. Hairspray.
Give your arrangement a spritz of hairspray, this will help set it in place and even helps to preserve the quality and life of your new fluffy goodness! We don't advise using any high-shine products or anything that can provide a sheen or gloss. We advise to stick with a low-shine/matte finish hairspray, so that we keep everything looking as natural as possible!
05 - Show Off!
