Yay! Another thing checked off the Fall Bucket List! A few weekends ago D and I went apple picking with my parents. It was a gorgeous fall day, and I love any day that I get to spend with my parents -- because seriously, they are awesome. Apple picking is just one of those seasonal activities I love doing every year -- and then I have fun trying to come up with all kinds of recipes and things we can do with our surplus of apples. One thing we love doing with our apples is making D's famous apple pancakes.

Oh uh! Someone got caught eating too many apples!
And with all these extra apples, I thought it would be so cool to make our own cider.
And have a cider bar for entertaining. Here's some ideas that I have in mind:
How awesome is this set-up? I love the rustic sheafs of wheat that add a rustic touch, and the apples as added decor.
I also love carving apples to hold little tea light candles. With the warmth of the flame, I bet it heats up the apples and smells so fresh and delicious!
And with the cider bar -- how about these awesome cups carved out of apples to serve the cider in? Garnish with some orange slices and cinnamon sticks, and you have yourself a warm little treat! xo
What do you do with all your leftover apples?
