Awesome Apple tablecloth = Tablescape!

  Apple tablecloth for inspiration?  Check!
Apple salad bowls? Check!
Apple serving bowl? Check!
Apple S & P shakers? Check!
Fresh apples?  Of course!
All the makings for an  early autumn apple themed table!

Using my Hazel Atlas again, they're just so colorful and versatile!  Plus I just had to use
the chartreuse apple salads.  There is a matching salad serving dish that is on my
"must have" list, so I keep searching. 

The centerpiece pedestal bowl is Haeger, a thrifty find.
The vintage amethyst candlestick holders are also a thrifty find,
Mr. Retro brought them home to me, beautiful!
(I should just put a disclaimer here that 99% of what you
see on my tables is a thrifty find!)

Vintage thrifted glasses.  The dark green is the Hazel Atlas fruit/dessert cup.

Vintage Vera napkins (though not perfectly matched) go well on all my tablescapes.

Thrifted Indiana Glass apple shaped serving bowl.
Vintage looking, but new, salad servers ~ a gift from my Mom.
Green apple salt & pepper shakers stamped Inarco 1967.

 Vintage thrifted sugar & creamer stamped Made In Japan.
Apple ready for fall, yet still so colorful.
I'll be bringing out the fall orange-brown-green colors soon.

 Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen challenged us to do an
apple theme table for her Let's Dish party on Wednesday evening.
Go check out all the beautiful and creative tables!
As always, love when you visit & when you leave a sweet comment!
I'll be joining ALL these fun parties this week:
Beverly's Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound

  7. Oh I love this one! Fruity and Fresh! lol
    I'm confused though, are the green apple shaped bowls H.A.? I love them!
    Thanks again for sharing with us!
    Erica :)
    ps Does Doyle eat apples? Wellie and Ernie love them! It's so funny to watch them crunch away!

    1. Yes, they are Hazel Atlas. I see them on eBay, but they're usually pretty high priced.

      Doyle won't eat apples or veggies. Good for Wellie & Ernie, healthy snacks, lol.

  8. Love the colors in your tablecloth. Such a festive print. I'm always impressed with your tablescapes, especially because your hubby helps you collect special pieces.

  9. Fun tablecloth and perfect for Kathleen's challenge. Pretty tablescape!

  10. Oh, yum! That is one tasty tablescape. It's perfect for this time of year.

    As for the extra spaces, have you highlighted the entire area where the extra spaces are and then then removed all formatting? It will put MORE extra spaces in, but when you backspace them out, the unwanted ones are gone. It always works for me. (A time or two, I've actually had to go into HTML and take out spaces, but not very often.)

    1. Thanks so much Dana. I need to copy this and save it.

  11. So pretty Pam! Love the apples! Jerry likes apples too! Lol. Happy week! xo Holly

  12. I love that table cloth and the colors are so beautiful, the vintage ones are getting so hard to find and yours are beautiful...Phyllis

  16. Hi Pam,
    I just knew that you'd have a fun apple-y table with a vintage tablecloth and you didn't disappoint me! The colors are so bright and cheerful. The chartreuse apple salad bowls are so special and I love all you accessories to highlight Kathleen's challenge.

  21. I love how you picked up the pink from the vintage tablecloth. It really sets the tablescape in a different place than the red ones (like mine)! Beautiful use of interesting pieces.

  25. Hi Pam, I love the pinks and greens in this tablescape. Not what I usually think of when I think of apples. The tablecloth is gorgeous! The apple bowls are super. I have not seen them before. My youngest daughter collects and has the darker green bowl. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
