You could also use vintage posters of french cities/landmarks. There are plenty of beautiful vintage black and white pictures on the net of Paris or other French towns. You could design a beatuful art deco styled table card using the pictures and a great art deco font. Good luck! Hope this helps!

We named our tables after "famous" chefs…Jamie Oliver, Anthony Bourdain, Bobby Flay, etc, etc…it was fun! (Took some people a while to figure it out, though. Not everyone watches Food Network or other travel foodie shows like we do, it seems!)

Sounds like you’re on the right track to figuring out what you want to do. Making it personal makes it fun! I also like bonnibelle’s idea. French stuff is so classy and pretty…

Have FUN with it!

If you have many tables I would also suggest having a diagram of circles w/the names of the tables at the sign in table so people can at least know in which vicinity the table is at.  With numbers everyone knows in which direction of the room to go to, but there’s nothing worse than walking around 30 tables trying to find the one on your placecard!

What about writing out numbers in french?  That’s a little more inspired than simple numbers but still grounded and consistent with your theme.

I like the idea of writing the numbers out in french, but the bird names is nice and brings in the birdcage. Your table name could be "love bird." I liked planning too… until I started thinking about table #s and escort cards!

I like the idea of a table # board. What are you using? I’ve thought about that too but haven’t come accross anything. I want something big – like a big chalk board

You can get a table # board printed at a place like Staples or Kinko’s for not much money at all (probably cheaper than buying a giant chalkboard). 

I like the numbers in French idea and names of birds.

I like the bird names, but maybe the bird names in french – or birds typical to France instead of here….I don’t know if there are any great birds over there with nice sounding names, all I remember from my trip was the piegons….lol.

Our table names are named after cities that are important to us as a couple or indiviually. Places we lived, visited, and then I will be having a little blurb on the card (I think I’m tossing around not doing this anymore) about why the place is important, along with a photo of us.

Really it’s not as crowded as it might sound.
