Ok I just started working on these and was wondering if they look cheesy. The finished ones the numbers will fit better in the lantern glass but this is pretty much what they will look like. Also stick with one color, multi colors, or different colors for each table?

Those don’t look cheesy at all, I think they are cute.

I like these! I would actually make the number non-italicized. It will look cleaner with the line of the 1 parallel to the edges. I might even put the number on two opposite sides instead of all sides.
Great idea! Can’t wait to see it in action.

I agree with changing the font so that you have a cleaner, more parallel line. I would also use the same color panels and probably the same color in general on each table. I like them!

@edub: Thanks for the advice, I think I’ll change fonts. The font I used isn’t italicized but it does look it, even more so in the pictures so I’ll find something more vertical.
The lantern has six sides, do you guys think it would look fine to alternate numbers on every other side? My colors are purple, blue, and green so those were the colors of the numbers but I think I might alternate those colors throughout the tables.

Any more opinions/advice?

I agree with the others. Maybe limit the number to two or a few sides. Alternating them like you asked would probably work.
I also like the idea of keeping the lanterns to one color but alternating the colors for each table. Multicolored could work but I think it might look better with just one color for each table.

Stick with one color for each lantern, but alternate for the tables. Cute cute cute idea. Love it!
Are you using real or flameless candles?

Flameless candles, I’m afraid real candles will set the whole thing on fire.

Those are really cute, I like them a lot! I agree with the suggestions already made though.

Maybe do a number in every other slot instead of every. I love the idea that it lights but please use flameless candles just in case. I love these I think they are super cute!!

This is an awesome idea, very cute! I voted for single color per table, because they are a tiny bit too busy right now for my taste, but you could also simplify by reducing the numbers to 2 or 3 sides as suggested above.

I like it just the way it is, not cheesy at all!
