An Apple a Day...

Since moving from the big city to a little town, things have really slowed down.
Life is running at a slower pace, there's time to stop and smell the flowers
or load up at the local market with fresh fruit...
like apples.
Guess where I'm going with this?
Guess what today's table features?
Kathleen over at Cuisine Kathleen 
gave us tablescapers a challenge to use apples as our theme for today's post for her Let's Dish.
My table is very simple, with just a touch of red.

Natural chargers set the simplistic tone.

These white chargers are so versatile...they can be dressed up or bring a little charm to a casual table.

Add a few more layers...

and throw in mix-matched flatware and the table is complete.

Except for one last thing...this centerpiece...isn't it great?
Donna over at Funky Junk Interiors made one and featured it on her blog (with a tutorial!)
It's made from a vintage hand drill and fence boards.
(It's also so versatile!)

I'm also joining Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday.
Be sure to visit both of these ladies' parties. There's loads of inspiration!
Thanks for dropping by...
enjoy the rest of your week!

  14. Sharlotte, I love your table. It looks fresh and crisp, just like a good apple! The centerpiece is so unique--I was trying to guess what it was before I looked, but then I saw that you created it! Wonderful! Linda

  15. Sharlotte, I love your beautiful white plates. They are so perfect in this lovely apple tablescape. The Apple centerpiece looks great tucked into your "creative" wooden container. It has so much character. Really cute with the red napkins and apples with the raffia spilling out of the box. I love it!
