by on Nov 20, 2013

You can count on at least one sumptuous item in the produce department this time of year: apples. They’re bright, shiny, colorful, and perfect for decorating your home over the holidays or any day. 

Apples are a great way to add color and interest to a mantle at the fraction of the cost of cut, fresh flowers. Monica kept it simple with this vignette.

Another monochromatic situation, this one was created for a wedding, but it would be lovely for a centerpiece for any occasion. In this case, green grapes and limes help out the Granny Smiths.

If you’ve ever bobbed for apples, then you know they float. This basin of apples and floating candles is a lovely combination. A basin like this too big for your table? No worries; use a clear bowl and swap fresh cranberries for the apples.

I’m not sure why I love this idea from The Inspired Room. It’s simplicity; it’s cheekiness? Probably both. So sweet.

A cored apple (used as a vase) paired with a spider mum couldn’t look more charming.

Same idea, only instead of flowers, votive candles.

This apple-as-vase idea gets a lift with the help of a wine glass.
