need help with reception table “numbers” how we should put the table “number into the center piece… and how we should have escort cards ect…
instead of doing numbers we are doing classic car names. so people will sit at tables called cadalic de vill or ford thunderbird ect… got rid of numbers because we think people would be jealous there not at table one or what ever…
this is centerpiece almost plan b… it will be elevated and i need to still finish the ribbon on tealights….

How about just a folded card that sits in front of the main pillar – like a tent placecard?
If you’re really lucky, you could have a greyed out image of the cars…

I don’t know if this is possible but I like the idea of having little models of the classic cars? Perhaps with the name flying from the exhaust.

I think your centrepiece is really elegant, so I would go simple with the table names. What about just framing them? You could maybe find fonts that match the style of the car to be a bit more subtle or find the logo for them?
You could spray paint the frames to match your ribbons too.

so i think we are gonna go with double sided frame with grey paper-card stock and orange wording and font… should the remainer tealights be purple or orange…
soon to be hubby isnt saying which it should be. he is letting me decide..
i dont know what to do.. think it might be too purple…. wedding colors are eggplant/plum purple. tangerine orange, charcoal grey, my dress is diamond white..

we are matching all the paper to the invites– so a coral scroll print from 123print with table names on 4×6 stock. seating charts will be on 5×7 stock paper. candy buffet signage will be on folded 4x6s. still haven found grayed out cars so may nix that idea

You could do something like this for each table; I made an example in the colors you described.
You could change the colors or fonts to match the invitations however you like, then the easiest thing might just be to buy frames even from the dollar store and spray paint them a matching color, like silver. You could layer these on top of an eggplant/plum piece of construction paper to incorporate more wedding colors as well.
I created this one using publisher but had to save it as a JPEG so the image quality doesn’t show up as defined as it actually is. I could do the rest for you to print to your home printer for a small fee by the end of the week, just let me know if you’re interested! Otherwise I recommend playing with paint, publisher, and google’s creative kit. Good luck!
