green apple inspired fall tablescape

It’s apple season so it inspired me to set the table in the honor of our harvest.

There are still very few pumpkins in our area so I thought I would give a nod to our frequently overlooked beautiful bounty of apples.

I spied these little apple buckets in target’s, yes you guessed it, $ bins.  although this little guy was $3 dollars it totally got my juices flowing, and gears turning, and all sorts of ideas going.

You know how it is, we’re always thinking about our blogs and the next post no matter where we are or what we’re doing.  You just can’t stop inspiration.

I’m really happy how it all came together even though I had to change some things from my original vision, but that’s part of the creative process.  Don’t be afraid to change something that you thought would or should be a certain way.  By trying different things it gives you perspective and eventually it should just look right to your senses.

I think that’s part of what makes the whole process fun.  Whether it’s putting together a tablescape, side table vignette or an entire room decor it’s the challenges that make us try or move or switch out something that makes it so satisfying when it all comes together in the end.

I started each place setting with my diy plaid fabric chargers, followed by our Williams-Sonoma bistro dinner plates.  Next I added glass salad plates I picked up at target a few years back which is topped with bon appetite square bowls I got at Home Goods last year.  I love these bowls and get compliments on them all the time.  I’ve used them a million ways and they are the perfect stage for these gorgeous green apples.

I also used some of our everyday silverware and the glasses I inherited from  my parents.  the wooded slabs i used around the table are the ones I painted with chalkboard paint (on the other side).  Remember this tablescape from last year?…

Ok, back to our regularly scheduled program…

I know I sound like a broken record but I’m going to say it again.  I love mixing a little rustic with some glam.  There’s the obvious natural apples and wooden elements along with the glass plates and silerplate pieces.  I probably got all if not most of the silver while thrifting.  You can read about my love affair with  silerplate here.

I will be making some yummy apple recipes with all this bounty.  I love all the flavors and spices that the season brings.

  1. Lovely!! And perfect for fall. I love your plaid chargers and your new bowls. You couldn’t have chosen a better pop of color than the green apples! Thanks for sharing such a pretty space. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  2. Mary Jo, I love your beautiful apple tablescape! Apples in a basket definitely scream fall to me! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

  3. Wait a minute…just $3??!!!!!?!? That is a STEAL!!! I haven’t been in a Target store for a long, long time, but I’m thinking I need to throw on some clothes and head that way this morning before I get into my daily routine! Three bucks??? Wow! Apples are a terrific transitional fruit to use for summer into fall, and they look especially great in those little bowls. Oh, I’m Alycia, by the way. I’m visiting your blog for the first time via TT. After 5 straight years of blogging and TT, I took a “sabbatical.” But I’m back now, and glad to see new-to-me faces and talent along with folks I’ve known for awhile! Have a great weekend!

  4. Lol alycia. that’s exactly what I thought. now this tablescape is from last year so I don’t know if they have them again but it’s certainly worth checking out. happy shopping! xo- mj

I love hearing from you!
