apple tablescape

It's getting close to appletime.  My tree is bending low.  Apple pie with rhubarb yum yum.This is an older post but thought it is a good one for the ones who did't see it. Enjoy

Table setting green check placemats and red tableware.  I made the napkins and tied apples with jute twine.  Little red dish for dessert. Ice cream with pie.

Just a little apple plaque spells country

White table cloth with a square of apple cloth like the napkins I made.  Red candle holder and apple salt and pepper

salad plate over fruit basket dinner plate

Love the little wheelbarrel filled with apples and bird sitting on an apple.

center piece of course apple dish filled with real apples off my apple tree.
We had a bountiful year on my two apple trees. Grannie smith and  don't know the name of the red apples but they are sweet and delicious. The apple dishes I have had for a long time some from the dollar store.

Going green thanksgiving

I am going green.  I am using dishes I bought as a young housewife over 45 years ago.  they were called Ye olden days.  Each dish has a different old  picture.We used them only on Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I have a set of eight but now only set for two. We always had ice water with our meal. Our menu was usually always very traditional but plain.  No decor but lots of food and good chats.I used to think how long it took to make this meal and how quick they all ate it because the men didn't want  to miss the football game. Now I eat special occasions with my son and family who live on the street in back of me.The two  girls now are living in other states and loss of loved ones our table has gotten smaller. My grandson will be home from collage .  I am thank ful for them all.

I live near the beautiful majestic river in the 1000 Islands so thought it would be appropriate to do a nautical tablescape..
