Unobtrusive chrome or brass clip holders raise table numbers above the centerpiece on a slender post or nestle low in the center of a plate with a guest's name.

Simple hinged-plate stands support stiff card-stock print ads, books or a small piece of slate or mini-chalkboard with a table number or dinner menu.
