I know this may seem silly to suggest – but why not just number them?

Could you maybe do old movies?  Or Mrs. Flamingo chose one vintage movie poster, then just added a table number to each one. 

And here’s where she found vintage movie posters. 

Or you could take pictures in vintage clothes and use the pictures to make table numbers.

Maybe classic jazz singers?

  • Frank Sinatra
  • Etta James
  • Bing Crosby
  • Ella Fitzgerald
  • Cole Porter

Hehehehe, you could name them with sweet 20’s lingo.  Like “bees’ knees” or “cat’s meow.”  You could name them…  maybe classic romantic movies (e.g. “Casablanca” and “Gone with the Wind”)?  I guess those are more like 40’s…

How about the names of the candies you’ll be having in your candy buffet?

I like the movie poster idea.  Since it is along the river you might use River names like the Hudson, Thame etc.

Love the candy name idea! Or 1920s books/movies/songs.

Does the venue offer any other inspiration?

I like the vintage catch phrases idea!  Or quotes from 1920’s books, like The Great Gatsby or any Fitzgerald novel.  Or get the names of riverboats that frequented your river at the time…your venue probably has a historical archive of this kind of thing.

I had the same idea but  Mrs. Spring beat me to it.

In addition to themes that go with your decor, another option is to choose a category that reflects a hobby, an experience, anything important that you and you Fiance (family & friends) share.

What about finding some black and white photos on the web of places that are important to you and your FI? (eg, if you’re a world traveller – Paris, Rome, Toyko, London). The black and white could be classy and very elegant.
