A is for Apple...T is for Tired!

Hello everyone! I am no longer MIA!

Please note:

This is the first tablescape I have done since February.

This is the first tablescape I have done in my new house.

This is the first tablescape I have done with this table.

This is the first tablescape I have ever done in a basement!

So, the theme is apples. As I looked back at the photos, I noticed that the walls, table and chairs, and carpet are very close in color. And, the table has a glass top. To me, it looks like my tablescape is kind of floating. See if you agree.

So, how do you ground things? Use black!
 And, what's more fun than plain old black? Black with white polka dots!
Because of my busy place settings, I went very simple with the centerpiece!
Yes, there are pears in there, too. But, apples love to share the spotlight with pears!

These dishes were in the "things I want to give away before we move" pile, but at the last minute I changed my mind!


Thank you for visiting!
So, T is for Tired because I've spent the last few months getting moved into our new home. To give you an idea of the magnitude, my dishes alone filled 22 boxes. The stemware was another 11 boxes. That doesn't include the three sets of china I own.
I bought the table and chairs in this week's post, so I would have a table to set in the basement, just steps away from my "dish room." I plan on painting them, and eventually the basement walls will get color, too.
Be sure to check out the apple-themed tablescapes this week at the CuisineKathleen's Let's Dish Blog Party!
