Apple Engagement Party for Fall

The design was inspired by crisp red apples and the idea of tying in the concept of "picking" apples, and "picking" a mate.

Most of the decorative details are hand made and provide a balance of masculine and feminine. Take a peek at all my ideas!


  • Bite into this engagement party with these juicy apple ideas. The design was inspired by crisp red apples and the idea of tying in the concept of "picking" apples, and "picking" a mate. Most of the decorative details are hand made and provide a balance of masculine and feminine. Take a peek at all my ideas!

  • Some of the ways we incorporated the apples were in candy apples, apple cider, mini apple pies, an "apple tree" detail attached to the burlap backdrop, jars of apple butter as favors, and baskets of apples for picking and taking home.

  • This is an idea you can sugar coat! Accent each of your guests place settings with a caramel dipped apple...yum!

  • Take "a peel" to this idea and place small cards on the table that reads, "you're the Apple of my eye".

  • A key focal point was the burlap backdrop with a manzanita branch attached and faux apples hanging from the "apple tree." Mini apple pies with fabric & lace flag picks and apple cider were on the menu. Swags of lace, and banners made of twine, felt leaves, and paper circles were draped around the area to tie in to the lace details & leaf glass cover on the table.

  • Check out this fresh idea! The printables were a key part of conveying the concept - a framed sign read, "he Picked her, she Picked him".

  • This is a tasty idea that is sure to hit home! Give out these favor jars of apple butter which have a label that said, "we Picked this just for you," and baskets of apples for the guests to "take your Pick" and carry home.
