This is a simple, early fall table setting I created for my dining room. It’s not too fancy, but is pretty and charming. I love to use natural elements in my home and decided to use fresh-from-the-orchard apples and dried hydrangeas for this fall apple harvest tablescape.
For the table linens, I went to my favorite local fabric shop and found this fabric that resembled a vintage grain sack. Originally, I was going to make burlap placemats, but I fell in love with this fabric. I began searching the rows of fabrics and found a coordinating botanical print for the napkins. It’s super easy to make your own placemats and napkins (tutorial coming soon).
I found this vintage, white china at a local thrift shop. Isn’t the embossed pattern amazing! I have had them for months just waiting for the perfect debut! There were only eight dinner and salad plates, but I purchased them knowing that I could easily mix and match this pattern with other white dishes I already have. To keep things simple, I used my everyday silverware tied with a braided jute ribbon at the top of each setting.
The silver cups are another thrifted find. They are from a Philadelphia restaurant and date back to the late 1800’s. They’re tarnished, but I kind of like them that way. When I use them for serving, I add a small glass dessert cup that fit perfectly. After I added some shredded paper for filler, I placed a small Gala apple and some dried hydrangea in each cup. Each setting has a bay leaf “place card” and I used a gold Sharpee marker to write the names on each leaf.
In the center of the table is a wood serving board that Mark made for me. I’ll share more about the serving board in another post. With an apple harvest themed table, you absolutely must serve apple cider! I used my pewter pitcher for the cider and mason jars for drinking glasses at each place setting.
I hope I’ve inspired you to create your own fall apple harvest tablescape! Get creative and put your own spin on this idea!
