Early Autumn Luncheon

My first and biggest collection is my Franciscan Ware Apple dishes. I loved the graphic apple design in deep green and red and they're perfect for an early fall celebration.
Today I hosted a luncheon for some of the lay leaders and volunteers that I work with.  Inspired by this Stone Gable pear themed table, I carried out the apple theme with my centerpiece, an old dough bowl that bears remnants of red paint on the outside, filled with a variety of apples and other naturals.
Bronze wire napkin rings from Crate and Barrel reminded me of coiled branches; napkins from Pier One; runner from Pottery Barn
Swirled Goblets in green and gold from Pier One
Forest green juice glasses held cushion mums and coleus. It was a fun luncheon and my chance to give back to some wonderful women who give so much of their time to help improve the lives of others.
