The sage leaves aren't just a pretty addition -- they're fragrant, too.

Velvet ribbons, about 22 inches long
Small brussels sprouts
Fresh sage leaves
For each napkin tie, sandwich 1 end of a ribbon between a sprout and a pair of sage leaves. Use a sequin pin to secure, pinning through the leaves first, then the ribbon, then into the sprout. Repeat on opposite end of ribbon.
Tie the ribbon around a napkin in a loose knot.
