Each season is characterized by its most prominent attributes. For example, when you think about summer we think about heat and sandy beaches. Autumn is characterized by the foliage, the rain and holidays such as Halloween and Thanksgiving. And while you’re thinking about that all sorts of other ideas pop into your head, most of them related to decorations. Besides the pumpkins and the leaves, some of the common decorative elements are apples. They’re delicious but they’re also beautiful and great when it comes to making table decorations. Let’s take a look at a few examples.
Wreaths and other hanging decorations.
It might seem a little odd for some of you but you can make some very beautiful wreaths and other hanging decorations using apples. Red and yellow apples are perfect for an autumn decoration.
There are lots of ideas you can use. You can make a wreath or you can slice apples and hang the dried pieces on a rope and thus create a garland or you can even put them in a vase. You can also combine the fruits with colorful leaves, branches, nuts and berries.
Since they’re so delicious, apples belong on the table. But they’re not just to be served during the meal but also to make the dinner table more beautiful and appealing. You can make lots of beautiful table decorations using apples. For example, you can use them individually and wrap them in white cloth or carve them and make apple butterflies. You can also put them in a vase with other fruits and leaves. And, of course, you can string the apples on sticks and bake them around a campfire.
Another great idea for a table decoration is to use apples to make candles. It’s easy and it’s original. All you have to do is remove the middle and part of the flesh if necessary and then insert the candles. The apples will emanate a nice smell and the light will be diffuse and warm. You can also put these lovely decorations in a container filled with water to also admire and enjoy the reflection of the light into the water.
