Pumpkin gets all of the attention during the fall, but apples are just as prevalent. Each fall, I go apple picking. Of course, apple picking in Northern Virginia isn’t exactly the same as I remembered it as a child in New York. It’s usually still fairly hot, the apple trees peak early. I strongly feel like apple picking should be done during crisp fall days where you wear a sweater, jeans and boots, and sip on hot apple cider at the quaint general store next to the orchard, and much on fresh apple cider doughnuts. Alas, it’s not ever really like this in Virginia. But I digress… apples are still a great way to make a fall event feel festive and fall-like, and also a low-cost alternative for centerpieces and decor. Here are some of my favorite ideas:
A simple potted plant with apples makes for a lovely centerpiece. You can easily DIY this – you just stake the apples. Via Ashley Austin Homes:

I love the idea of a crate of apples as a centerpiece – simple and easy! Via Polka Dot Bride:
Apples are great for submerged centerpieces – they last for hours in the water. I love the idea of topping with floating candles. Via The Fancy:
Although this submerged centerpiece with delphinium orchids is stunning! Via Dr Delphinium:
