Apple Harvest Tablescape for Fall

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!
