Transform brunch into a festive autumn themed party with crafty ideas and thrifty finds! Bite Me More's Julie Albert and Jane Apor create a chic and affordable apple orchard in your own home with this harvest-inspired tablescape.
Be a dollar store diva: At a dollar store, stock up on red bandanas (use as napkins; great because reusable), place mats (red round ones are ideal), apple peelers (use them as place cards/napkin rings that guests can take home), styrofoam apples, twigs and leaves.
Wrap your table: Wrap your table in a red-checked fabric, strips of burlap or craft paper to create a picnic/harvest-feeling table.
Have fun with your theme: Start some apple-centric games such as dunking for apples and an apple-peeling speed contest; prizes can include apple pies, apple butter and an Apple gift card!
Send guests off with candy apples and a copy of an applelicious song list with such juicy hits as The White Stripes' "Apple Blossom," Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" and The Osmonds' "One Bad Apple."
