Traditionally apples dipped in honey are eaten in hopes of having a sweet year, so why not sweeten up your décor with these apple and hydrangea centerpieces? For all of you that are blessed to have apple trees growing in your yards, this is a lovely way to use up any excess apples so they don’t go to waste, and pretty up your place!

Pomegranate is often used to symbolize the good deeds we want to wish upon others and that the year to come will be as plentiful as the seeds of the pomegranate. We love this inspiration for your tablescape using these beautiful fruits.

Great Ways To Celebrate Labor Day

According to the United States Department of Labor “Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” For most of us it’s also and end of summer party that is destined for grilling!

Photo Booth of the Stars wants to share some wonderful ideas on how you can celebrate this holiday!
