    I really like the wood table numbers, and I love your flowers, but I don’t feel like the two go together at all.  Your flowers are beautiful, but more tropicalish, not rustic.  I hope that makes sense.

    @lovelove1028:  I actually don’t think rustic when I see your venue. It does have wood but it is defnitely on the chic side of rustic chic.

    Are you using any other rustic touches? They does seem to be a bit of a disconnect between your centerpieces and the proposed table numbers.

    @lovelove1028:  I don’t think the number itself can make them fit well with your centerpiece.

    You could try spray painting the whole wood slice to see if you like that look. With a light coat, you should still be able to see the grain of the wood to make it interesting. You could then do the number in a color to go with your flowers.

    @julies1949:  Oh, I like this idea. Try the spray paint. That might bring it together better. I think you’ll have a better sense once you do a couple mock ups.

    Gorgeous venue, by the way!

    You could use Ikea Tolsby frames , but use an insert painted with chalkboard paint, then chalk in the number. Use a chalk pen so it doesn’t get rubbed off.

    Ikea has the frames in blue now

    or you can spray paint them any color you choose

    What about just using a wooden number inserted into the low centerpiece like this?

    For the tables with the cylinder vases, you could elevate the wooden number  on a small wooden box.

    As a pp said, I suggest you do some mockups with a few ideas to see what you like the best.

    I think this could work. The birch log slices are painted with chalkboard paint.

    I think the only reason it’s not really working is because your centrepieces are quite modern. Could you replace the water beads with regular garden stones, or remove them all together and put the bowl on another wood slice?
