Red and Green Summer Tablescape

June 4, 2013

In the June 2013 issue of Traditional Home magazine, there is a tablescape done in red and green.  Something about these two colors together really catches my eye.  I decided to try the combo myself this past weekend when I was inspired by some napkins I bought at Jo Ann Fabrics.

In the center of the table I used cream colored pots filled with geraniums and dusty miller.  I also added a cast iron bird in cream and set around tea lights in clear glass holders.

 I layered the plates by using a red decorative charger from Kirklands, a cream colored plate by Chris Madden, and a light green Martha Stewart dessert plate.  I topped off the pile with the geranium napkins I bought.

Using green and white gingham scrapbook paper, I made name tags for each of the guests.  I printed the name out on a white address label on my printer and cut it to fit the card.
