Geranium Mania

I have been waiting to set this table for some time now...

...I just needed a few things to fall into place.  You see, I found this gorgeous fabric, Pink Geraniums from the Variegated Garden Collection by Martha Negley, some time ago.

In fact, this was my first set of hand made napkins.  The napkins were ready...but the rest of the tablescape still needed to be figured out.  Always on the lookout for all things "tabletop" I stumbled upon these... green square grass mats, neatly trimmed in magenta, at World Market.  What could possibly be more perfect?  Hmmm...

...square plates sure would look cute set upon these placemats.  Well, that was no problem.  The Crate & Barrel Outlet near me regularly stocks these basic plates.  I simply folded my napkins into square pockets to hold the flatware...

...and I layered, square upon square upon square!  I knew that my Lyla green wine glasses, also from the Crate,

would add even more color to the table.  I must admit, I borrowed this cute drinking glass idea...

...straight from Pinterest.  Luckily, one of my potted geraniums had just bloomed, so I popped a few flowers into a simple little white vase.

Don't you just love that the brightest colors imaginable come not from a nailpolish bottle or a lipstick tube...

...but from Mother Nature?  I'm so glad I patiently waited until I found just the right items to compliment my geranium napkins.

Stay tuned for another garden inspired tabletop next time!


  1. Oh, this table is SO appealing! I adore geraniums and always have several pots blooming on the patio. Your napkins are fabulous -- love that print -- and just perfect the way you've arranged them on the square plates. I think you could make a living setting tables in stores! Wouldn't that be a fun job?

  2. What a beautiful table. I love geraniums. Your napkins are absolutely gorgeous. Great job! Have a super weekend.

  3. This is a beautiful summer table with those hot colors. That fabric is wonderful and a perfect match to the placemats. Perfection all around! Dianne
