Here, Martha Stewart uses stacks of books to complement, in color and texture, kinds of invitations.  But I still love it– and can’t wait to start gathering and playing with stacks of my own.

Table ideas (instead of table numbers): Shakespeare, CS Lewis, Whitman, Tolkien, F Scott Fitzgerald, Nabokov, (Matt says he could go with Douglas Adams), Chekhov… we need some women writers…: Wharton, Willa Cather, Jane Austen (except she’s always wry about marriage)…  

Help us out here, reader friends.  Or, do you have any favorite quotes about love?
