– my summer addiction this year.
Red Geranium Tablescape
My summer just wouldn’t be complete without a red geranium tablescape – perfect for a garden party.
I began by filling a basket full of faux geraniums. I had found these bushes at Jo-Ann Fabrics for just $2.29 per bush. Just three of the bushes were used to achieve the look.
The red geraniums have a wonderful, vibrant red color.
Faux ivy was tucked into the basket to add to the garden look.
To give the flowers a fresh floral look, I simply added stems of fresh baby’s breath to the basket. The baby’s breath will dry in the basket and so will not need to be placed in water.
Terra cotta pots were used to hold the red pillar candles.
Some were placed upside down to create height while others were right side up, with the candles placed inside the pots.
Two sizes of the terra cotta pots were used to add variety to the red geranium tablescape.
A ribbon, found at the dollar store during the Christmas season, blended the colors of the geraniums and the terra cotta pots used to hold the candles. A simple bow made from the ribbon was added to the basket of red geraniums.
Napkin rings were formed by simply bending the wire from a geranium stem to create the ring.
The leaves were slid up the stem and tucked under the head of the blossom.
Green and red napkins were combined to give a cohesive look to the red geranium tablescape.
Geranium leaf place mats were used under each place setting.
You can find how these simple place mats were created HERE.
Red plates were topped with salad plates featuring a green toile pattern. Look for a future post to see how these plates were created.
Single geranium blooms were tucked into miniature terra cotta pots and placed upon each of the green toile salad plates.
Simple name cards were tucked into the geranium blossom to create a place card for each guest.
The candles are lit.
And now we are ready for the guests to arrive.
