When I think of early fall in Michigan apples and sunflowers always come to mind, and it just so happens the apples are falling from the trees early this year and I timed the planting of my sunflower seeds at just the right time to decorate with and today I’m going to share with you a simple way to get a natural look using apples.
Why not make an edible table arrangement! So easy, inexpensive, and quick to create. I used a grain sack runner, a bunch of apples, fresh tree branches, and candles. It couldn’t have been easier and takes absolutely no talent to get the look right, and that’s what I love about it.
I just pulled up the orchards apple picking schedule for this year and it looks like September 23rd will be the last picking day for the year. Normally apples can be picked well into October here, but not this year everything seems to be early…..and that includes the cold weather.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already heard me talk about our chilly weather. This weeks highs will be in the mid 60’s and we’re dipping down into the 40’s at night. It’s great weather for evening bonfires but it’s quite abnormal for this time of year to be so cold this early.
Although the entire US is having bad weather in some fashion either fires, hurricanes, scorching heat, flooding, or something out of the norm. I’ll take the cool weather over hot weather any day, but it is making me amp up my game when it comes to getting things wrapped up outside for the season.
Still on my to do list is to get the guest house re-landscaped, we ordered a new furnace that hubby has to install at the guest house also, I have the fire pit to finish and share with all of you, and a shed and bench to paint. I do plan on having it all done if the weather holds out though.
Come back soon and I’ll be sharing with you all those projects on my list and see what I’ll be doing with this apple centerpiece once it starts to wither.
