We’re sharing simple apple centerpiece ideas as we team up with some of our favorite ladies for a Fall inspired Pinterest Challenge hosted by the always amazing Cindy of County Road 407.
If you’re coming over from Cindy’s blog, welcome, we’re happy to have you here. Didn’t you love her seasonal vase that can be used all year? Me too!
The Pinterest Challenge is a monthly series where each blogger uses the same photo found on Pinterest as inspiration.
They then change the idea to fit their own specific style and incorporate it into their home in some way.
This month, Cindy chose our inspirational photo from Kelly of the blog Live Laugh Rowe and her post, DIY Pottery Barn Inspired Home Décor.
Transitioning from Late Summer to Early Fall…
One of the hardest things to do this time of year is to slow down and enjoy the season you’re in.
I personally struggle at times to savor these moments because as a content creator, I’m usually rushing from one seasonal idea to the next.
And if there’s one cycle I’m desperate to break this year, it’s the *go-go-go *do-do-do* cycle that has somehow become second nature.
So, rather than pulling out the pumpkins when it still feels like 115 degrees in Florida, we’ve decided to transition from late summer to early fall by decorating with apples.
We don’t have anything too fussy or over the top planned.
Rather little reminders around the house that invite us to savor each moment as we leave behind one season and prepare to welcome another.
And one of the easiest ways to do that is with simple apple centerpiece ideas.
Here’s a look at how to create a simple apple centerpiece and 12 other Fall décor ideas to inspire you this season…
Simple Apple Centerpiece Supplies:
- Glass Hurricane
- Apple Picks (Bloom Room Fall Collection at Joanns)
- Leaf Picks (Bloom Room Fall Collection at Joanns)
- Floral Wire
- Floral Wire Cutters
- Tray (We used a Woven Tray)
- Books (optional)
Simple Apple Centerpiece Idea Steps…
Gather your supplies.
Make sure your glass hurricane and woven tray are clean and free from dirt and debris.
Then remove all the stickers from your floral picks.
We found these leaf picks…
and these apple picks at Joanns.
Start by layering one leaf pick with one apple pick.
Using caution and care as metal stems will be sharp, twist them together.
Secure the stems in place with floral wire.
Continue to layer the apple and leaf picks together until you’ve created a wreath for your simple apple centerpiece idea.
Creating an Easy Apple Coffee Table Vignette…
If you’re using a woven tray, consider placing a book on the bottom of the tray to help stabilize your glass hurricane and candle.
Next place the leaf and apple wreath you’ve just created around the bottom of the hurricane.
Fluff the stems as needed.
Add a few books to the other side of the woven tray.
Then cozy up and enjoy your simple apple coffee table vignette.
Creating a Simple Apple Centerpiece…
Now if you’re looking for a true apple centerpiece as opposed to a coffee table vignette, move the book, glass hurricane, and candle to the middle of the tray.
Then fill in the empty space with additional leaf and apple picks.
You can also leave this apple centerpiece on the coffee table.
Or you can use it in the breakfast nook, the dining room, or even an entry table.
I think it would look great on a kitchen island too!
Using Caution and Care…
As always, use caution and care when deciding where to place a simple apple centerpiece idea or an easy apple coffee table vignette.
Especially, if you have mischievous pets or curious littles.
I had to move this from the coffee table to the dining room table the minute I finished taking these photos because these realistic-looking apple picks were too tempting for Piper!
Also, be sure to never leave a lit candle unattended.
