Okay gang, I thought I'd throw these ideas out there for anyone looking for last minute ideas for T-day table settings.  It's fancy pants napkin folds and ideas for place cards, like monogrammed candles:

Monogrammed candles: A 3-by-3 pillar candle clustered with cranberries, pressed leaves and tiny flowers provides a pleasant place card that also adds ambience, while informing guests where to sit. Purchased alphabet stickers make the project easier. However, if time permits, monogram each guest's candle with acrylic paint mixed with candle-painting medium. Here's how: Place candle on its side, on a folded towel. Coat letter stamp with acrylic paint, blot stamp on paper to remove excess paint and stamp candle.

Get the whole picture here (I can't repost the pix) including instructions on my fave project - Herb Napkin Rings.
