Table numbers?

I'm trying to brainstorm ideas for tables besides using plain table numbers. Is anyone doing anything different or have any creative ideas?

    We're doing names of State Parks we have visited together instead of numbers. Each table will also have pictures of us at the particular park.

    I'm just using the plain table numbers that my venue provides. So much easier. One less thing to worry about.

    If you don't have any ideas go with plain numbers and save yourself the trouble.

    We did glittered numbers. Half were this pink color and half of them were mint.

    We're doing origami models that will be also part of the centrepieces. These aren't kid-quality origami, though, we have an origami master.

    Thanks for the great ideas ladies! The one idea I had was using songs titles that had the word love in them.

    We're using letters. Our the letters in our first names are exactly how many table we'll have, so it worked out perfectly.

    We are using numbers with our photos that are adhesive and go on the wine bottle on the table. I got them on etsy. We will be using them on Sunday! Eek!

    I was firmly in IDGAF-mode by the time it came to thinking about table numbers, so rather than a big DIY project, I just printed out numbers that I designed.

    @AndixLyn I would have thought I would be excited to do something different but as I struggle to figure out my centerpieces I think numbers seem easier to keep it clean (and one less thing for me to have to stress about...quite so much at least...just choosing type of number and style seems like it could take awhile). Good luck with whatever you pick

    I just did numbers, but I printed off labels with the numbers on them and pasted them on wine bottles and put branches inthe wine bottles. The numbers were free printables from I thought about making each table a character from a midsummer night's dream (the theme of my wedding), but when I found the printables, I got this idea, and it seemed easier. Do you have a theme you could use for the table names?

    My initial thought was to somehow put them on mini pumpkins. Our centerpieces are black lanterns with pillar candles in them. And I was hoping to put mini pumpkins around the lanterns. So either carve or write with sharpie on the pumpkin. We are going to try it out this October and see how it looks. If it doesn't work out, I will find a way to put them on the pillar candles, but in a way that they can be removed because I want to sell them after the wedding.

    Mine will be similar to Mrs. M to b's and we are using numbers instead of letters. They will be raised like that in the frame.
