DIY: Style Watch: An Autumn Apple Soiree

November 18, 2012

I’ve always wanted to design an apple table for fall…so last weekend, I used a bunch of my Clear & Simple Stamps supplies to do just that.  A simple, vintage-inspired apple sign added some style to a wooden crate that I picked up at Michael’s.

Caramel apples and cider were a must for this spread, so I used my crafting supplies to create cute labels and tags. The woodgrain cider label was perfect with the rustic feel of this design.

I was super excited to break out my mini pie maker that we got as a wedding gift! In just an hour, I whipped up a bunch of mini apple and mini pecan pies…and they were DELISH! Equally delish were the little labels I created for these sweets.

As I developed the menu for this apple table, I thought it might be nice to throw in a few dishes that went well with apple. My first thought…grilled cheese. Yum. For the label, I printed out the words then stamped it to match the other labels on the table.

Another flavor that goes well with apple is gingerbread! I bagged a few and added simple tags and baker’s twine to each.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this autumn apple spread! Join me over on Facebook a bit later for a few additional photos, showing how I packaged up some of the mini pies for giving as gifts to a few friends!
