DIY Geranium Centerpiece

diy-wedding-centerpiece-ideas

I love clipping geranium stems from plants and using the blossoms for fresh arrangements. The blossoms are beautiful and fragrant and the leaves are interesting and colorful. Here, I’ve created a mixed arrangement (for a centerpiece, favor, guest book table, etc) using geraniums and other summer flowers. I’ve also created a matching boutonniere. Geraniums make great cut flowers because they hold up well in bright sunshine and offer a fresh look. Click “more” below to see the rest…

Create the shape of your arrangement with the geranium blossoms and leaves. Let their winding stems help you decide on the shape for your arrangement. Next, add the crocosmia flowers. Place them strategically to reinforce the shape of your arrangement. Fill in holes with the calendula and larger marigolds.

Lastly, place the chamomile flowers in the arrangement. They are delicate so, it’s best to add them last. Add a sweet ribbon around your jar!

    I just fell in love. I’m not getting married anytime soon, but I’ll have to remember this when I do plan my wedding!

    I love the geranium idea. Beautiful, summery scent, too–right up there with tomato vines for sense memories of childhood. Also, simple and feminine without falling into fussiness. Beautiful!

    I LOVE geraniums. They are my favorite flower and the scent just sends me. I have them everywhere during summer and bring them in during the winter. An unusual and beatiful choice for the arrangements!
