Apple Tablescape for Fall

I'm like just about everyone else in decorating blogland.  Kids went back to school the second week of August and my mind starts wandering to fall things and Halloween.  Problem is, around here, we will have summer weather until well into November, if our wet 
May is any indication of the current weather trends.
So it is very difficult to sell out right away to fall colors.  I thought I would ease into the fall by having an apple based table scape.
We live about an hours drive from "Apple Hill" a foothill area of Northern California where apples and blackberries and raspberries are grown by a large group of local farmers.  They publish a map and invite the public to come sample their products throughout September and October. Lovely way to spend a day and come home with apple cider and apple pie and some pick your own apples.

All of my supplies have been seen here before, so just enjoy.

I wanted red apples but being from Washington state, I cannot find decent tasting red apples.  So I opted for  Granny Smiths which are tart and crisp.

Thank you for stopping by.
I'm linking to Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  Be sure to see what Susan, our hostess, has posted plus all the other great tables. Sure to be lots of fall inspiration.

What a pretty table! I love the apples used as a centerpiece and the splash of red from the goblets.

Hi, Jeannine! I agree with Kathleen and the green apples! I think it really helps to add an unexpected little punch of color to the center of the table! I'm with you on resisting fall. For me, fall doesn't really begin until mid- to late September. We've enjoyed a cool snap here in the Midwest, but it will soon be replaced with the balmier stuff again. I don't want summer to end!!! In your neck of the woods, I'm sure the warm weather hangs on for quite awhile, so enjoy it!!!

Reds and oranges with a shot of apple green, great colors to end the summer it!

How pretty your apple colors are in your tablescape. Wonderful napkins -- I think the green color of the Granny Smiths is the perfect accent to you delightful table.

Such a wonderful choice of colors. The jacquard napkins play a pivotal role in making it all work so well together. Thank you for sharing your delightful design. Cherry Kay
