What about something like this?  But instead of one row, you get a large piece of paper maybe 21" in width and then string the ribbon every 7 inches or so so that you can have 3 rows of cookies.  I’m thinking a larger piece of paper may make it sturdier.  Not sure though.

Just a thought, but what about putting really pretty paper on a flat bulletin board, and tack the cookies up with those nice pins, like the kind that look like pearls on top or something that matches your color scheme??   you could either lay the boards flat on the table or put them on an easle??

I can’t believe you’re thinking about all these little details already – I have 3 months to go and haven’t decided anything about place/escort cards!

For another example of the martha stewart technique that stressgirl615 posted about, I believe Mrs. Lime did something similar – search for "placecard lasagna" in the blog archive…

You have the best ideas!  I am having so much trouble figuring out ordinary stuff like flowers…  What if you had cookies-on-a-stick, like in the cookie bouquets?  Then they could all stand in a decorated block of foam (or several blocks)?  I saw somewhere that sometimes they actually decorate foam for some of the layers of the cake to make it larger – so you could have the foam decorated like that, or airbrushed with a large version of your monogram.
