DIY Apple Wedding Inspiration

I'm still on my fall kick, even though I feel winter coming on all too fast (it snowed where we live two nights ago). Apples are such a perfect symbol of fall, and they make cheap and delicious decor for a fall wedding. Here's some apple eye candy to feast on and DIY projects to get inspired by:

How gorgeous is this apple and dahlia centerpiece? DIY your own with these tips: "Tuck fresh apples into a bouquet of red dahlias for a bountiful centerpiece. Poke twigs (or floral picks) into the bottoms of different-size apples, then insert twig ends into floral foam in the container."

Apple dessert buffet ideas - serve candied apples on stacked tiers, and dress up a plain cake with apples, leaves and flowers

A sweet escort/place card idea - candied apples with wood tags

For appetizers, serve Crostinis with Homemade Tomato, Bacon and Apple Jam topped with Feta Cheese. Get the recipe here (from Better Homes and Gardens)

Homemade Apple Butter favors with cloth covered lids do double duty as a placecard and favor. (from OnceWed)

A rustic Apple Butter Cake makes a sweet fall treat.

Apple pie pops in fall shapes like leaves with be a hit with guests of every age. Get the recipe here (from Better Homes and Gardens)

Have a "Pick Your Own" apple station where guests can take home custom printed paper bags of apples as favors.
