Decorating With Apples

Apple a Day

Apples are grown in temperate zones around the world, and have been cultivated for at least 3,000 years. Today, apple varieties number well into the thousands, and that's not including the variety of apple accents available for decorating your home. 

Have your apple a day with delightful home accents adorned with this favorite red fruit. Bright red apples make perfect accents to kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms all year long, or for special displays from late summer well into fall.

Historical Significance

Historically, apples provided an alternative to risky water sources to American colonists. Hard cider would be drawn out from the bitter apples (apples unlike those we have today) and used in everyday life.

Although demand decreased drastically in the 19th century, campaigns promoting the health benefits of apples put the fruit into a positive light, especially in relation to farming families and teachers. Poorer farmers would offer crops, including apples, as a way of supporting their children's teachers, as wage levels were severely low.

The tradition of giving an apple to a teacher has carried on through the years, and apples continue to be a favorite fruit for many.
