In anticipation of fall’s arrival, I’m part of ‘Welcome Fall’ Tablescape Blog Hop!
You can find fall table inspiration from 20 table stylists at the bottom of this post.
Fall is my favorite season and I’m ready for apple orchards, hot cider,
harvest feasts, hay rides, pumpkin patches and corn mazes!
And when the calendar page turns to September,
I’m falling for apples!
Anyone ready for apple picking?!
While fall officially arrives in two weeks, Mother Nature still
has plenty of summer weather in store for us in North Carolina,
typically well into October.

A farmhouse plaid tablecloth provides a cheery foundation for the table,
blending the colors of summer and fall. . . the
brighter color palette fitting for our 90 degree days.
Robert Sprays by Wedgwood floral plates were a favorite antique mall find several years ago.
The delicate sprays and muted color palette of the flowers,
reminiscent of the waning summer blooms in the garden.
They’re served up on assorted harvest plaid dinner plates and framed with wood
chargers atop burnished copper chargers to add texture and interest.
Bright hammered copper flatware joins burnished
copper napkin rings for a blending of the seasons. . .
And floral print napkins are married with farmhouse plaid.
Apples are at each place setting as well as in the centerpiece.
To create the centerpiece and for quick and easy flower arranging,
I used acrylic cups as mini vases, adding them to a burnished copper container.
Plastic grocery bags help keep the cups from shifting and in place
once they’re filled with water and flowers.
Mums, alstroemeria and sunflowers from the grocery store join
Limelight Hydrangeas from the garden that have begun their fall metamorphosis.
No flower arranging skills required for this easy flower arranging method! The large hydrangeas,
sunflowers and mums help to conceal the cups within the container.
The individual cups also make it easy to change your water and replace faded flowers
so you can get more life out of your arrangement.
Apples were added to the arrangement with bamboo skewers.
Place your skewered apples in between the vases to help fill in the gaps.
Insert your skewers into the blossom end of the apple, about an inch into the core.
As the bamboo skewers are food safe, the apples can used
for fall baking after the flowers are faded.
