Fresh Apple Party Theme

Think apple themes are just for fall harvest parties? Think again! From rich red delicious to vibrant granny-smith-green, this popular fruit makes for great party decor throughout the year – especially when it comes to bridal showers and special brunches or luncheons.

Here are a few ideas for bringing a fun, casual apple theme to life:

Apple Red Utensils ($3/service for 8)

Apple Candy Containers ($15/set of 12) – Fill these cute little guys with fruit candies, gourmet trail mix, or packets of spiced apple tea.

Stirrings Apple Martini Mixer ($10) & Apple Martini Rimmer ($5) – This party theme definitely calls for apple martinis! Make things easy on yourself with a ready-made mixer…no bartender required!

• Instead of the standard cupcakes or sheet cake, try something themed & unique like these Apple Streusel Cinnamon Swirl Cupcakes. {via Hostess with the Mostess}
