Fall has come around again my friends and I could not be more excited! If you’ve been around here for a while, first of all, bless you, and second, you may recall from last Fall that I’m not a huge fan of the traditional Fall color palette. Please don’t hate me! Orange and brown just ain’t my thang! Anyway, for this years table scape I’m mixing things up again and going with what I love… pink!

As I started planning my Fall table, I knew there would be some pink involved, but I really wasn’t sure what else. I thought to myself “what do people do in the fall?” and “what items make you think Fall besides a dang orange pumpkin?”
And then, it came to me, green apples!
About the time I came up with the whole apple “theme”, I also discovered Jaye’s Studio and their cute cachepots. When I found the gold and white stripe ones, I was initially floored by how affordable they were and then, I knew I needed them for my Fall table scape.
My first thought was to make balls of green apples and sit them right on top of each cachepot, but I wasn’t quite satisfied with that idea. So, I got my creative gears turning and I decided to make topiaries instead.
I’ll be honest, even when I got done with the first topiary, I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. I guess I felt this way because it didn’t quite turn out how I had envisioned. So, I let it sit on the dining table and for the rest of the day, during commercial breaks, I stared at it. Every now and then, I’d turn to Stewart and ask him what he thought and like the wonderful husband that he is, he just said “I think it looks fine!” Finally, after staring at the topiary nearly all day, I finally decided I liked it!
It’s funny because now when I look at them, I absolutely love them! I think they’re so cute! I don’t know why I was so unsure at first.
Besides the topiaries, I wanted to keep this table as simple and budget friendly as possible. The topiaries didn’t look quite right on their own, so I filled a thrifted crystal bowl with a $3 bag of apples. Besides that, the only other things I bought for this table were fabric for the table runners and the gold chargers.
For a little something fun and interactive, I added a Fall Bucket List printable to each place setting.
Just a little FYI, it’s formatted to fit a 5×7 sheet of paper best which is what I used for my table scape.
And, just in case you were wondering where anything came from, here is a full source list:
Gold Rimmed Plates: Dollar Tree (last Christmas)
Gold Chargers: HomeGoods
Gold Flatware: Handed down (similar)
Magenta Fabric (this is the exact fabric, but I bought 2 1/3 yds)
Crystal Bowl: Thrifted
Gold and White Cachepots: Jaye’s Studio (similar)
