How To: Lambs Ear Garland for Wedding Decor

by Emma Arendoski

Are you looking for where to buy lambs ear garland in bulk for your wedding decor? Or do you just want lambs ear greenery strands here and there to add texture and dimension to your tables and wedding arch? You’ve come to the right place! Lambs ear has a gorgeous and thick texture which is different than eucalyptus, its kid sister and partner-in-crime (they go together perfectly in garland). Lambs ear also offers these thick, soft, oh-so-touchable leaves that you can’t help but adore.

Real lambs ear garland (and no, it has nothing to do with a real lamb or a real ear, ha!) is hard to come by as it is seasonal, and pricey, but faux lambs ear garland with lights, with berries, or with flowers — even solo, I say! — is the way to go when you’re looking to buy lambs ear garland in bulk and to use for decorating weddings, mantles, etc.

Last summer, I was browsing my garden and, lo-and-behold, I stumbled upon real lamb’s ear. Tons of it. It is sooo soft and I just love the way it feels, like a soft fluffy lamb’s ear (where it got its moniker).

But if growing your own lamb’s ear and turning it into a garland or buying lambs ear in bulk and trying to keep it fresh isn’t on your to-do list this spring and summer, I understand. So let’s do the next best thing: we’ll decorate your wedding with lambs ear garland in bulk from the best resources out there.

Now that you know where to buy lambs ear garland in bulk, how will you use it at your wedding? Great question: here are the places you’ll want to use lambs ear garland for wedding decor. You don’t have to go overboard and use it on EVERYTHING, but these are the main focal points where greenery is used.

Table Runners

You can decorate your reception tables with lambs ear garland atop a long farmhouse table by itself and really show off that rustic wood… or you place it on a gauze table runner for a pop of color. Either way, this combination of eucalyptus and lambs ear garland makes a stunning combination.

Mantle Decoration

If your reception has a mantle, add a strand of garland to it. Mantles are a great place to create a photo display, too, and photo frames with backs that prop up on their own are easy to use.

Head Table

When couples are planning to decorate with garland, they often think of the reception tables first and forget about the head table or sweetheart table. When you are buying greenery in bulk or, more specifically, lambs ear garland in bulk, be sure to include your head table or sweetheart table as a part of the decoration order. You can have the garland decorate the end of the table closer to guests so you’ll have enough space for your place settings.

Wedding Arch or Arbor

You can decorate your wedding arch with greenery. Choose lambs ear or eucalyptus by itself, or coordinate your colors by decorating with lambs ear greenery with flowers in your favorite shades.

If you prefer, choose lambs ear swag like this, which acts as a perfect decorating piece at the top of your wedding arch or arbor. This is handmade by LycheeWreathBoutique and looks great at home, too, after the wedding. :)

Entrance Doors

The entry doors are often overlooked but are an easy way to add instant decor with the use of wreaths. These faux lambs ear greenery wreaths are beautifully-made by WildRidgeDesign and we adore them for weddings.

Flower Girl Hoop

A popular trend for the flower girl is carrying a hoop instead of a basket. This is especially great if you have a flower girl who doesn’t want to toss petals, or your venue doesn’t allow petals to be thrown. In this way, your flower girl can just carry a hoop down the aisle and place it on a table or set it aside. You can get the prettiest lambs ear hoops here — they’re incredible.

Aisle Decor

Long strands of greenery on the sides of your aisle, paired with candles on pillars or inside lanterns sounds like a dream to me! You can browse these lanterns, best suited for weddings, and buy lambs ear in bulk here in many sizes to suit your needs.

If necessary — for any of these decorating styles — buy long strands of lambs ear greenery and attach the ends together with clear zip ties and trim access of the ties to achieve the length you want.

Thank you for referencing my Etsy shop! I’ve sold over 100 of these garlands this wedding season. Plus I just signed a contract with Darling Fanbox to add my garland as an add in to their subscription box. On 5/24/21 a photo shoot will take place, staring my garland, for a magazine. And the best part, discovery channel picked up Chip & Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper( HGTV) and will showcase my eucalyptus & lambs ear garland at their dinner party that will be recorded some time this summer.
