How about them apples?

 An impromptu dinner party calls for an impromptu table setting, and the challenge of pulling something together from things close at hand in fifteen minutes or less. Thank goodness it's apple season!  This isn't the first time that fresh, fragrant produce has saved the day.

Red and yellow apples took center stage in this three-tier centerpiece into which I tucked greenery and filled in spaces with Melissa's Organic Baby Gala Apples (so cute!).

Now, I know you're getting sick of seeing these placemats but, yet again, I'm amazed at their versatility.

I pulled plates, bowls, and mugs from the cabinets in colors to replicate the apples, doing the same with the napkins.

Complementary glassware and a baby apple for each and the table is set!

Not sick of those placemats at all! They are the PERFECT color with your dishes, glassware, and all the wonderful produce! That is one of the coolest 3-tier stands ever!!! I love the "wavy" look. Beautiful and colorful!!!

Loving the vibe and the color here! I had a hard time not acquiring those same placemats. Oh well, maybe it's not too late!
