My Connecticut Country House is a house for all seasons—quite simply because we keep in time with the rhythm of the seasons. It’s a good way to live. Harvest gives us a good reason to celebrate and decorate with what’s in season now. A great big bowl, basket, and platter filled with just picked apples is absolutely perfect for decorating throughout the house, as well as outdoor picnics.
It’s simple. Sticking with one variety of apple, I look for different colorful shades, as well as leafy stems (if I’m lucky enough to find a few!). This humblest of fall fruit can be the most visually impactful of them all.
Happy decorating (and snacking)!
