This charming fall table setting was inspired by nature, and features apples, eucalyptus, and flowers in cheerful pinks and reds!
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!
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 oranges and rusts.

Dahlias in creamy café au lait and bright pink mixed with eucalyptus and displayed in a simple glass vase 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 is perfect for an early fall table setting. And with so much detail on the salad plate, I kept everything else simple by layering it over a white dinner plate and pretty white charger.
Unfortunately, these are sold out and not easy to find! But they do turn up on Ebay here and there, and the good news is, I’ve linked some cute options that will give a similar look below!
Brass candlesticks and some seeded eucalyptus also march down the center of the table on a frayed linen runner, 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.
These brass candlesticks from Terrain are a definite favorite. They are the perfect blend of casual and rustic. 😉
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 dark flax linen placemats add lots of texture.
I’m loving the gold flatware for fall! It adds some really nice warmth that’s perfect for the season!
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 last year using some apples from my tree in this post).
