Apple Picking Tablescape for Fall

Here in Pennsylvania, it’s apple picking season!  There are many local orchards where you can go pick your own apples as a family and it’s so much fun!  It’s a favorite fall activity for sure!  I haven’t been out to the apple fields for a while since my kiddos are now young adults, but I’m longing to take my granddaughter apple picking!  I did visit my local orchard farm stand and bought a bushel of apples to make some applesauce.  And, I wrote a post explaining the easy process I used!   With all of those gorgeous apples, I decided to take advantage of nature’s beauty and create a pretty tablescape for a casual family gathering!

Apple Themed Fall Tablescape

You don’t have to have a fancy meal to have a pretty tablescape!  And, it doesn’t take a lot of time or money either.  For a tablecloth, I used a throw blanket that I purchased in the spring from the Magnolia Hearth and Hand line.   It’s no longer available, but this one is similar.   It just jumped into my cart when I saw that black and white buffalo check and those tassels!  I arranged the blanket on an angle to show off the corner tassels!   I also think a tablecloth on an angle gives a more relaxed look.

Instead of fancy dinnerware, I used my everyday dishes for this tablescape.  They are just basic white dinner plates with a beaded edge that go with everything.  I layered these pretty watercolor plaid salad plates from Pier One on top of the white plates and topped with white bowls for soup.  The white plates and bowls I’ve had for years, but I purchased them at HomeGoods.  I didn’t bother with a full set of utensils, since I am serving soup for this casual supper.

I picked up a loaf of cranberry walnut bread for this meal and it was as good as it looks here.

My centerpiece really couldn’t be any easier to put together!  I used a large glass vase and added some apples to the inside and a few tree branches that have just begun to turn!  I placed  the glass vase on top of this wood slab to compliment the wood bread board.

My soup tureen is a vintage ironstone piece that I got a while back at a local antique shop.  And, the pressed water goblets are from Walmart of all places!  I moved the white pumpkins and fern that was on my buffet to the porch and sat the basket with the rest of my apples in their place.

These apples are called Smokehouse and are great for baking and are often used to make apple cider.

I hope you’ll make time for apple picking this fall – whether you go to the orchard or just the grocery store!  There are so many wonderful fall apple recipes begging to be tried!  Why not make an apple pie or crisp for dessert!  Or, give my easy apple dumpling recipe a try!

I love every detail of your apple-themed tablescape. I'm really looking forward to getting fresh apples from a local orchard.

Love the beautiful tablescape, but I'm crazy about the chandelier above the table. Wherever did you get?

Hi, Ryta

The chandelier was purchased at Pottery Barn many years ago and, unfortunately, they no longer carry it.
