Martha Stewart Living, September 2008
Place a tea light on an apple; cut around edge with a craft knife. Scoop out flesh with a melon baller, and insert candle.
Using decorative-edged scissors, cut leaves from green paper. Put 1 end of a 3-inch-length of floral wire between 2 leaves; use craft glue to paste together. Repeat with opposite end of wire and 2 more leaves.
Write guest name on 1 leaf. Wrap wire around apple stem.
For votive: Tea lights
For place cards: Green paper
Use the surplus from apple season to make tabletop decorations.
