Good evening, ladies, hope you are well! Tonight is the APPLE CHALLENGE. Please link up you tables that are about apples. If not, please save it for next week!
It has been busy here. I am hosting 3 HS friends this weekend from out of state. They are coming for our reunion.
I have never gone to a reunion, so this will be interesting. 47 are coming from as far away as Canada and CA. 14 are deceased. There were 140 girls in my class at Queen of the Rosary Academy.
I made all the arrangements at the restaurant, and will do centerpieces etc, so I hope everyone enjoys it.
I am sure we all look exactly the same! HAHA
On to the challenge! I have done an apple table every Fall for years.
4 PM and still no table. I decided to go a different direction and use the PB plaid dishes I got last year on sale at the outlet.
A red charger from PB Outlet from years ago, the red plaid dinner, white pierced edge salad from CTS, and the apple bowl from Cmas Tree Shop also.
The red cotton napkins were from clearance last year at CTS, I think they were .24 each. The braided cotton buttoned napkin ring also from CTS, .25 with a little apple hooked on.
The flatware is by Cambridge.
My little apple cart is filled with apples and mums from the garden.
Making their debut are the white butter domes, 1.29 at CTS.
The table cloth is fabric from Duralee Outlet. I used a 90 x156 black cloth underneath.
Red stems from CTS, and green goblets are by Anthropologie via the .99 store. The lg.apple casserole dishes are from CTS, and were in clearance for .39! I got apples and pumpkins last year.
At each place is a green leaf with an apple candle, both from CTS.
The apple salt and peppers were from a .99 store.
Little apple core scatters could hold a name card. See it on the white plate?
It is still quite summery here, and I will enjoy every day of it! Soon I will have to put the porch to sleep for the winter. Seems like I just got it scrubbed and set up.
But I know the calendar says FALL, so I will give in and drag out some of the fall decorations.
Speaking of FALL don’t forget the all white FALL table challenge on Oct. 16th!
The challenge is to use ONLY WHITE dishes, and ONE other color for linens , silverware or whatever. I go from one color to the next, I have no idea what I am going to do! HA, I bet you thought I plan the challenges around what I have, but nope, I ponder just like you do, and change my mind a lot! I think of something , and then remember, nope, only WHITE dishes! Your charger can be your OTHER color though.
Can’t wait to see how many DARE to join the challenge! :)
Last week the market had asparagus on sale for $1.49 a lb. They were pencil thin, so I decided to bundle them and roast them wrapped in prosciutto. Wash and trim, salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss around, then wrap with prosciutto and roast till done.
Hubs liked them, I don’t eat asparagus. :(
I am taking part in Rattlebridge Farm’s Secret Ingredient party.
I have to check the date, Oct.1 sticks in my mind. She really threw us a curve ball! Hope you will come back and see what I come up with! I have no idea!
Thanks for stopping by.
