Apples for Fall

 I always enjoy joining Cuisine Kathleen's monthly tablescape challenges. This month the theme is apples, a fun theme.  Click on her name for lots more inspiration.


I didn't have to buy anything for this tablescape. I did have to search my fall boxes to find most of this.
I've had these cute figurines for about 20 years! They both have apples in the baskets.
 

                                                              Their hats are made of yarn.
 Aren't they adorable!


 I have named them "Apple Annie" and "Apple Andy"


 I've had the apple plate about 20 years as well. It is so different, with the raised apple design.
 

The lime colored plates are fairly new, I purchased them a few months ago at Dollar Tree.
 I've had the deep red chargers for some time, but had never used them. I was delighted to see they have an embossed leaf design on them!  I don't even remember where I found them.

The 'scape came together pretty easily. I used an apple green tablecloth and my pretty fall glasses that I found at TJ Maxx a couple years ago.



 I love the reds and greens together!

Oh, the napkins - I went digging in my napkin bins to see if I had something that would work and was delighted to find these plaid napkins! They were still in the wrapper, had never been used!
 
 I folded the napkins into a square so more of the plate would show.


I'm very happy with this apple tablescape, we are enjoying seeing it in our dining room, just a hint of fall here in FL (it's still hot here!)

Apple Andy offers you an apple!
 So does Apple Annie!


 I opted for a very simple centerpiece, even though I had a few others options: I started with this pretty wooded basket, but it just wasn't right.  Maybe I'll fill it with apples, or better yet - apple muffins!
 This pretty red wicker apple basket didn't work either. Maybe I'll fill it with nuts.
 This little wooden apple dish didn't work either, but it's so cute.
 My apple tablescape is plain and simple, but the colors are smashing! I hope you like it!

I'm also linking to Susan's Tablescape Thursday. Thanks, ladies for hosting.

I wanted to do this challenge, and I even looked about for some inspiration as did my mom and sister. It just didn't seem to get the juices flowing.

To me, apples just naturally go with plaids. I don't know why, but they do. I love the way you folded up that plaid napkin under the apple on each setting.

That apple plate is so pretty and different. I couldn't even begin to try to do an apple tablescape. I only have an apple cutting board...that's it! You did great as always...and the figurines are adorable!

Hi Katherine, Annie and Andy are certainly cute standing beside your beautiful platter! I like your plaid -- I also used plaid as it somehow seems appropriate for the fall days ahead. Linda

Hi Katherine! I love your apple-y table. The centerpiece plate is so pretty and the figurines are adorable. I love their little knitted hats! All your colors are so bright and cheerful and how perfect that you had everything.

Great table! Love the apple green tablecloth. The Apple Ann and Andy statues are so cute and that's a great apple dish. I like the plaid napkins with the apple on top. The stemware has all the right colors!

You know I love all the lime on your table, Katherine! Those little figurines are adorable...cute that they both are carrying apples.
Have a wonderful week...

Oh my Katherine. That is so beautiful. I need you to come work on my tablescape. I tried to do a fall one, but there it sits unfinished...in my opinion. You have such lovely table decor.

That lovely shade of green is a perfect backdrop for your apple table! You have a lot of fun apple-themed pieces and they came together beautifully on this table.
