Apricot Seating Cards and Centerpieces Ripe apricots become place cards at a summertime wedding or shower. Write names on strips of thin art paper; use a pencil to curl ends in opposite directions. Hang paper from bamboo toothpicks (available from kitchen-supply stores) inserted through apricot tops. Harvest baskets filled with peaches, nectarines, and Gala apples also make for an abundant, economical centerpiece; stuff basket bottoms with kraft paper, and pile fruit on top. For table number, glue a basswood stake between two basswood rectangles.
Wine Bottle Table Numbers Have wine bottles do double-duty as table numbers. Cover-weight paper printed with large, graphic numerals can be adhered over existing labels with double-sided tape for a clean, contemporary look. It's a clever touch that will have guests drinking to your good fortune -- and your good taste. Cotton-linen table runner with black-and-white floral pattern from Anthropologie.
