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.
