I’ve been wanting to create a tablescape with apples for awhile now. I love that apples signify fall, but in a more subtle way than say, pumpkins do. They’re perfect for this “in-between” season that we have right now. Fall is coming, but I know it’s still hot in many areas (including mine!) So this charming fall table setting is perfect for this late summer/early fall season that we’re in!
Today I’m joining my friend Kristen of Ella Claire for another installment of her Seasons of Home Fall Series and this time, we’re all sharing fall tables or entertaining ideas. Some are simple, some a little fancier, but all are stunning and perfect for any occasion this season!
As I said, the apples were something I knew I wanted to use right from the start. And they created the color inspiration for the floral centerpiece as well. I’ve never used pinks and reds in a fall table setting, and I’m really loving it! It’s a nice change from the traditional colors.
Dahlias in creamy café au lait and bright pink mixed with eucalyptus makes a cheerful seasonal display.
If you’ve been a reader for awhile now, then you know I’m a big fan of using different salad or dessert plates for the season. It’s one of the easiest ways to create a cute table – I mean, the plate practically creates the table for you! And these plates!! Let’s just say I fell in love 🙂
The charming quail in the center, mixed with apples and pink flowers just seemed perfect for an early fall table setting. There’s also an adorable turkey version perfect for Thanksgiving!
Brass candlesticks and some seeded eucalyptus also march down the center of the table, creating a casual feel that I love. No matter how fancy the occasion or holiday, I always like to have an element of rusticity or casualness to break up the formality. I want my family and friends to feel relaxed and at home!
To me, it’s always nice to incorporate some natural elements on any table, and the apples make the perfect edible centerpiece!
Flax linen napkins are a staple for me; something I’ve used again and again. I hesitated to spend the money on 100% linen napkins for a long time, but I’m so glad I did! Not only do they have a feel that you just can’t get with synthetics, they wear so well. In fact, they look better the more you wash them!
And a burlap colored linen placemat adds lots of texture.
There’s nothing like creating a pretty table for those you love. No matter if it’s a dinner party, a special occasion, or just a Sunday night-making a little extra effort always makes the night feel more special 🙂
I’m pretty sure more apple table settings will be coming my way this fall! 😉 And maybe some applesauce and apple tarts, too. Not only did I buy some for this table, but my tree is now producing and I’ve got quite a lot! (You can see how I styled my kitchen using some apples from my tree in this post).
