Apples to Apples

Michelle Virtue with BYU Campus Craft and Floral shows us how to put all of those apples to use.

A Few Apple Tips:

• Choose apples for their size and color. Granny Smith apples are one of my favorite for their brilliant green and shiny finish, but Macintosh & Galas are striking & affordable this time of year as well.

• Smaller apples are wonderful simply displayed in glass—bowls, vases, trifle dishes, or simply sitting on a white plate.

• Larger apples make an excellent canvas for acrylic paints, pins, wire, and paper.

• Don’t be afraid to mix mediums. Apples are beautiful in fresh floral centerpieces, filling a wicker basket, or displayed in a wooden bowl.

• Mix color palettes. Don’t be afraid to experiment. The richness of a red apple compliments royal purples, vibrant greens, and the softness of peach tones. Bright “apple” green goes with ANYTHING. I love the simpleness of this vivid shade with black and white, fuschia, or ANY rich shade of fall.

Think outside the apple box and you will find:

-Apple place card holder

-Apple tea light holder

-Apple party favors
