We came across this great idea for a simple place card at Martha Stewart Weddings. These ripe apricots become the perfect place card at a summertime wedding reception or bridal shower.
Simply write your guests names on strips of thin art paper; use a pencil to curl ends in opposite directions and hang paper from toothpicks inserted through the top of each apricot. You could also substitute the apricot for any summer fruit such as plums, nectarines or even green apples.
