As summer unofficially comes to a close, we say goodbye to seaside soirees and greet the fall affair. One of our favorite new trends of the season? Apples! So give your guests these cute candles (far left) from ArtWax that are made to look like our favorite fruit. Sold in packages of 12 for $14, the economical favor will definitely not be a throw away for your guests. If you are in the do-it-yourself mood but only want to exert minimal effort, try the Candle Carver from shoploveme.com. For $10 you can create your own apple candles to circle your centerpieces and add some fall flair to your reception. —Cari Wolfert
Wedding Wisdom: Stick a paper leaf on each candle with your guest's name on it for an autumnal take on place cards.
