Fall Apples tablescape

You know, I love apples.
Tart, sweet, crisp apples...especially in the Fall. 
I never feel that an apple tastes as good at any other time
as it does in the fall.
When Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen issued her challenge
this month for the Let's Dish party, it was all about apples. 
I was happy to join in.

This was a tablescape that came together effortlessly. 
I started with a plaid tablecloth from Home Goods.
Then I layered my often-used wicker placemats from Pier 1.
Green dinner plates are Better Homes & Gardens from Walmart.
Gold dishes are from the Oneida Outlet.
Red apple plates are from Christmas Tree Shop. 
Green flatware is Cambridge from Home Goods.
Gold napkins from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Green felt napkin rings from Crate & Barrel.
Green bubble goblets from Target.
The centerpiece couldn't be easier.  A potted Kalanchoe gave
me the color I wanted.  I had every intention of popping it
in a pot of some sort, but I liked the brown paper
that the pot was wrapped in, and decided to leave it as is.
I added a couple of small pillar candles,
and I had to add that burlap cutie, too!
I have to say, that I really love these colors together.
Really.  Love.

Happy Fall, friends!

  13. I have to say that I love those colours together too! You have one of the most complete set of dishes of anybody I know. I love it!!!

  14. You would think in a home with over 100 plates (for smashing into mosaics) that I would get a thrill out of setting a beautiful table. I never do it, that must be why I am a table-scape voyeur.

  15. This table says, "Look at me, I'm happy, happy, happy.".
    I love every element from the tablecloth, dishes to the pretty stems. Of course the star is the cute apple dishes.

  16. Gina, I love your apple tablescape!!! Especially the plaid table cloth and the apple plates! What a perfect table for Autumn. It puts me in a cheery mood just looking at it. LOVE ♥
