Day 5 of Table Number {Pinterest Picks}

┬áCan you believe it?! Today is the last day in our week of table number {Pinterest Picks}! We’ve had a blast showing your the latest and greatest in table number trends. To wrap up the week, we’ve got table numbers that aren’t really numbers at all.

An item in and of itself has the potential to serve as a table number. Brides using Alice and Wonderland for inspiration or grooms who are avid poker players will enjoy using a deck of cards in place of table numbers. Guests will enjoy scouting out the Queen of Hearts or Five of Spades.

Use your favorite books, characters, or movies to label each guest table

Another great option is to use the titles of favorite books, movies, or characters. This will instantly give each table a personality all its own. Plus, it gives you as a bride the chance to be creative and show off you and your groom’s personality and interests. You can even use places you’ve traveled or cities to distinguish one table from the next at your wedding reception.

After this week, we hope you have some great ideas for table numbers at your own wedding! Using something you saw in our {Pinterest Picks} this week? Let us know! Or, tell us what you are using instead.

Remember, the key to table numbers is making them visible while showing off you and your grooms personality. If you can do those 2 things, you can’t go wrong!

Day 4 of Table Number {Pinterest Picks}

In the past year, chalkboards have been all the rage at weddings. From dinner menus to table numbers, no wedding is complete without some chalky detail. Personally, we love this trend! (Don’t believe us? Stop by the store to see our various chalkboard displays.) But we are also excited about this new spin on handwritten wedding decoration trend.

Today’s Pinterest Pick is table numbers written on mirrors. Having a Victorian-inspired wedding? Choose mirrors with intricate gold detail and fill the space with white, swirling numbers. Want something more modern? Choose colorful mirrors with bold numbers. Keep all the mirrors the same or vary them from table to table. No matter what you choose, this take on a popular trend is just what you need to take your reception tables to the next level!

Need even more reason to use mirrored table numbers? They are an affordable way to dress up any table and a fun DIY project for you and your bridesmaids. Spending time with the girls while working on your wedding? It doesn’t get much better than that!
