Burlap and Green Apples Tablescape

August 28, 2013 by 31 Comments

After some inspiration on Pinterest I couldn’t help but create another green and white tablescape. Something about that color combination is very pleasing to the eye. I shopped the house for items needed for the centerpiece and then quickly made a mad dash to Hobby Lobby and Michaels to pick up a couple more things, like cotton bolls and faux green apples.  I gathered dishes, glasses, silverware and table linens and began to set the table.

Fall Table 1

I used my everyday “Mikasa” dishes, placed on wicker chargers, accompanied by wine glasses from Germany and silverware, also from Germany. The silver was a wedding gift to us from my parents 43 years ago (vintage?)  I still love it and use it frequently.

Fall Table 3

A silver bowl was filled to the brim with faux goodies, green apples, hydrangeas, succulents, cotton bolls and  a couple of branches.  The bowl was then placed on burlap ribbon gathered into a bow.  I love how all of these different textures play in harmony together. I would have never thought of adding succulents to the mix…but it works!

Fall Table 6

The apples are real and look yummy….love that shade of green.

Fall Table 2


Fall Table 4

Our sweet potato vine is still doing great in the planter box out on the patio. I snipped off a few green leaves and tucked them into the napkin ring for a pop of color.

Fall Table 7

Rustic and refined, best describes the look I was trying to achieve…and then…Ouch! Can you tell I was in a bit of a hurry here,  my candles don’t match. Please forgive me!  By the time I figured it out I lost some of the daylight and it was time to clear the table and put everything away. Has that ever happened to you?

I’m so glad you stopped by – have a nice day!

    You always make such elegant tables out of the simplest things. What I want to know & it was the first thing I spotted, is your pillar candle holders. They are so hard to find & then when you do find them, they are so expensive. I love your’s & wish I could find a pair of wooden ones. Didn’t even notice the difference in the candles til you told us!!

    The apples and burlap are a pretty combination of color and texture!

  8. So beautiful and fallish! I love the addition of a solitary leaf tucked into the napkin ring, tying in the centerpiece. Brilliant!

  9. Wow! Another pretty table! I think you nailed the description with “rustic and refined”. I love the burlap with the apples and the sweet potato leaf was genius. Thanks for linking up to our All Things Thursday Party! It wouldn’t have been the same without you!

  12. Your post jumped off the linky page at me with the bold green of the apples and the subtle brown in the burlap. This is a true still life composition with all the textures. Just stunning! I am pinning it so many more can enjoy the beauty.

    Oh how very pretty! I love how you combined the green apples with the burlap. Your rustic texture is carried out with the chargers and burlap ribbon. The green apples are a perfect color to go from summer to fall. have a wonderful week!
