We piled a cute bucket (available at craft stores) with fresh apples and leaves and added a festive, homemade sign. The sign was made with simple stencils and a marker which can be found at art supply stores. We added a cute heart stamp to paper lunch bags for guests to carry the apples home in. This vignette could be placed at the entrance to your reception or on each table, as a centerpiece.
Another option is to add a name tag to each piece of fruit. We stamped simple white postal tags (available at office supply stores) with the names of each guest in red ink and lined them up on a pretty tablecloth (add table assignments if needed). The favors could also be placed at each table setting.

However you choose to style them, your guests will enjoy taking away this festive little snack!
