Put a geranium on the table … and the summer goes to party! – Italian Cuisine


Eating flowers is definitely fashionable, but it is not on the dish that today we offer geraniums. It is on the table, as a simple summer effect decoration. If you think that among the many flowers the geraniums are banal and basically not so decorative … think again!

Here's how to turn geraniums into beautiful table decorations. Not to mention that the geraniums, like and even more of the aromatic lavender, help keep away the unbearable summer zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzies!

Fruit as a vase

177616Just a few cut geranium flowers and as many fruits to transform into pots. We suggest apples, more resistant, but don't stop your imagination! You can choose the monochrome version (all red, white or yellow geraniums etc) or color the table with flowers of different colors. What you have to get for sure are test tubes for water. The glass ones are ideal, but they are also good in plastic (and those found in any florist). Remove the cores of apples, using a special cutter for the fruit. Place the glass tubes in each apple and add water until they are half full. Place the cut geraniums in the tubes, then distribute the creations on the table: here and there, for a more moved effect, or close together in a central strip for an even more striking effect. If you want to "overdo" the decorations, you can paint the apples, for example with paint golden spray.

Personalized placeholders

177619A custom elegantly démodé, that of the placeholders, which always gives a touch glamorous at the table. Floral decorations with the names of the guests they are a wonderful alternative to the usual placeholders. Wrap a geranium flower in a paper cone and attach a name tag with string, tying it to the center. Or use colored decorated paper and ribbon. Then place it on a saucer. The final effect will be that of a small bouquet. The cut geraniums will stay fresh longer if inserted in the famous test tubes filled with water.

Plant them on the table!

177613Do you prefer cut flowers? Well, put the geranium plants on the table! In a row in the center of the mess, they are an ornament simple but appealing. Certainly the vase must be compatible with the table itself. One idea is to plant upstream geranium seedlings in original pots made by you. For example, reusing the empty cans or in any other recycling container, to decorate pleasure with bows, ribbons, or other. Attention: better to practice some holes in the bottom of the can or container and provide one drainage layer with clay pebbles, so that excess water can flow out. A saucer, even for breakfast, can serve as a saucer.
