    You can do it but some people might find the numbers hard to figure out.

    You could get around that by posting a picture of each table number on your seating board so people know what they are looking for.

    I think that having a painting is a unique idea, but I think that it will be hard for guests to read. I looked at the photo of the sax and tried to figure out the number (before reading your description) and I couldn’t figure out the number!

    Do you remember sesame street and the graphics that they used to use for their numbers? I imagine something like that. You can probably find some Sesame Street on Youtube and find those clips where they are counting. The number is more prominently displayed and clear, which keeping some of that art deco feel.

    I think the paintings would look nice on the tables. I agree with julies1949 though- the numbers are a little hard to pick out. I like the idea of posting a picture of the table number on the seating board or escort cards. Or just make sure you make the numbers stand out a little more. You want them to be fairly obvious so people aren’t confused about where to sit.

    Repost when you add the glitter or something to make it more obvious because I think this is the coolest idea!  As a guest I would have fun finding my table number and would def take the time to look around at all the other ones.
