I need an elegant centerpiece with red apples being the main theme but with fall flowers. It needs to be simple yet elegant and not too high for tables. It is for the grand opening of nursing home. Maybe candles with fruit. I also need something for the mantle of a fireplace. I need to impress higher ups with elegance.

If you want to use candles, you could core the apple first, with a corer that goes all the way through, and then insert pillar candles in fall colors(orange, gold, sage, burgundy). If you want to keep it shorter, you can buy the 6 in pillars rather than the 12 in. You could cluster the apples on a plate, or line them up in a row, on a long narrow tray. They sell vines of fall flowers or leaves at the dollar stores, which you could intertwine throughout the apples. To keep it really low, you could scoop out the top of the apple with a melon baller or something, and then insert tea lights into the cavity. Make sure to level off the bottom of the apple, by slicing a piece off the bottom. This will keep them from rolling over. You could always cluster the table arrangements, and then line the fireplace mantle, with tall candles. And if you could lean mirrors against the back of the mantle, it would look like double the mantlepiece. Good luck!
