Bushel & Peck Table Setting

Bushel & Peck Table Setting

For me any season or holiday is a great excuse to create a fun new table setting. So why would apple picking adventure be any different?

As I have mention I love the fall and everything pumpkin, but sometimes I feel like the lonely apple is often overlooked. Apple Picking has be a fall favorite for me as long as I can remember. You drive up to the mountains, making it a family adventure and select your perfect apples right off the tree. Check out our previous post Apple Picking (click to link.)Then after a fun day in the mountains, making memories, your take all your farm fresh treasures home and create some delicious homemade family recipes. Make sure to pick up some fresh apple cider as a cool weather drink. I  have a great recipe for a hot apple toddy, I will add into my recipe box sometime this week.
 So why end you apple picking adventure there? You can continue the fun with a rustic apple inspired tablescape to enjoy all those recipes. I decided for this table since it is a simple every day look to use my casual everyday china which I placed on galvanized charges.  I decided to utilize a lot of fabrics and textures by way of my linens. I reused the vintage toile napkins from last month, layered with a super casual denim napkin to ingrate a farm feel, all a top a rustic burlap runner.As the floral centerpiece I cut a bundle of autumn hydrangeas from my yard. These are also known as Limelight hydrangeas which are a pretty white and lime green color though out the summer then the remaining blossoms will turn a slight pinky purple color in the fall. This is why I call these autumn hydrangeas.  Finally, I wanted to add a little whimsey to the table. I decided to put a votive candle in this repurposed tin cans. These are just regular cans from vegetables I used while cooking. I removed the labels, ran them through the dishwasher and voila instant candle holder. I will admit, I was actually saving these for an outdoor punched tin patio project, which you might be seeing later this fall. Just act surprised when you see it all made over. I got to be honest I hate paying a lot of money to put things outside to get weathered.I hope you have enjoyed this table, as much as we have. It was a breeze to make and since we repurposed everything it did not cost us a thing penny except for the apples. Which we are using in tons for tasty treats this week on the blog.
