I think the pumpkins and the lights are a really cute idea. Instead of sticking the number in something I thinkg it would be cute if you had the lights wrapped around the stick part.

1. If you buy the wreaths, you will either have to cut them or lift up the pole of the umbrella to place them around the pole. You could also just get garland and wrap it around the pole.

2. Adding the battery operated lights to the wreath or garland would be pretty after dark, but they really can’t be used on their own.

3. 3M makes velcro adhesive strips that come in pairs. You peel off the backing on one side and stick it onto the back of the table number. Then peel the backing off the other side and stick it onto the pole.

4. How many tables do you have and what is your budget?

Do you want traditional flower centerpieces?  A quick google photo search shows that there are vases specifically made for umbrella tables.  Ask you florist about it.

I also have several candle holders that are made for umbrella tables that kind of swirl around the umbrella base , but I’m not sure the battery operated single lights would be bright enough and am not sure if you can have open flames. We were going to have a similar setup at the beach, but the venue was changed.

 similar to this but we made them silver.

@HeatherShane: So that works out to about $10 per centerpiece. You can certainly do that. How much are the wreaths? I didn’t have any luck finding them on the website (except the picture).

Having the wreaths with the mini-lights woven in amongst the wreath would look great.
