Daytime Blue Ridge-live- Woodsy Tablescape

Daytime Blue Ridge-  live Woodsy Tablescape  featured ripe red Gala apples,  natural acorns, colorful leaves and hydrangeas .   You can create this sassy setting by purchasing pretty fall salad plates. From that point, create your color scheme. In this case, I had a centerpiece that featured leaves and candles, so I added a few apples to bring out the red color in the plates.  The glass canisters beside the centerpiece has the same wooden dowel rounds glued to a felt band around the center of the canister.  This helps repeat the overall woodsy scheme.  The second photo features hydrangeas and cranberry spikes.  The cranberries are real and picked on a wooden skewer, then arranged with in the overall arrangement.  I repeated the cranberry theme with a Cranberry Ginger punch that was served with the dinner.  The cranberry ginger punch recipe can be found here http://serveitupsassy.com/cranberry-ginger-punch/.
