How large are the letters going to be? I had wooden letters on my table, they were about 10inches tall on the wooden base and I mounted them on a 12 x12 ceramic tile and the scattered pearls around and then had a bottle of non-alcoholic wine on each table and that was it. I had no other centerpiece. A lot of people said it would look too plain, but it worked great and people loved it.

@stokieGal:  I think it is a really fun and creative idea, and the head table works out so well 🙂

I really like it too!!  I think it’s very cute and will be really well understood.  The only problem I could see with a longer phrase down a long table is that to one half of the guests, they’ll be able to read it, but the other half will be looking at it backwards.  With one word, people will easily read it frontwards or backwards, but with a phrase, it could be a little more complicated to read backwards, if that makes sense.

If you still wanted to do a phrase, you could do wooden blocks vs. cut out letters, so that way you could decopage the letters onto the blocks so it could read both ways depending on what side you read.

Something like this, but with whatever phrase you want on one side, then do it again backwards on the other side.  It would be cute to add graphics and colors that are Beetles themed too on the other sides.
