Apple Festival Time Table for One

One of the very few advantages of living in a small, rural community is the fun, family events that frequently take place. Pat is getting ready for the 29th annual Fortuna Apple Harvest Festival ( by setting this week's table with an apple theme. (I'm afraid that hayrides, Barbershop quartet singing, Dutch Oven challenges, Fire bucket contests, and a host of other "home town" events don't really appeal to me, so I will be skipping it - again - this year.....)

The place setting

This is as close to a bunch of apples as I want to get......

The dark olive green dinner plate is "Spice Route" Clove from Pier 1

Pat's husband spray painted an inexpensive lacquer charger with Paprika Rustoleum spray paint for plastics

Glassware is from Pier 1 also.

  1. What a sweet tablescape for this time of the year! All those apple festivals!! Love the apple plates!

  2. You were reading my mind, saw one of my apple mugs to day thought about doing a apple table setting. Ya'll always do an great table. Keep em coming!

    Cathy <;)

  3. Oh, my, what a fun tablescape! I love those salad plates and the way you have highlighted them with the olive green dinner plate and red charger. But, I'm drooling over those votive candle holders! They're perfect for an apple-themed table (look like stems!) and are so different! Well done! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  4. I love this setting. Love the apple plates! I also think spraying the chargers is brilliant!!


  5. I love your table for one! Those plates are darling, and I love the candleholder. So cute!


    Sheila :-)

  6. I have been thinking of doing a rustic apple table this one is so neat. I love the little candle holders they look like little baskets and the apple napkin rings are a real find. I never imagine spray painting in another color.I usually shop around till I find it (or not) in the color I am looking for spray paint Genius .Susie

  7. This table reminds me of eating apples and how the wonderful juice used to run down my chin when I was a kid. or how I used to try and wiping my mouth with my sleeve without getting caught....LOL

    What an adorable table!
