if you have access to a jigsaw it’s easy to make that shape. then you can spray paint the wood black and use paint, or spray paint it with chalkboard paint for something less permanent.

I don’t have any recommendations for you, but that is a really cute idea for table names 🙂

We are doing a similar thing and having our tables named after our favorite places on Martha’s Vineyard. The table “names” will be a photo of the two of us at that location (like in front of the sign so that it’s obvious where we are). We are collecting picture frames for the tables to put the photos in and then guests will have to match their escort card to the name they see in the picture. I thought it’d be a fun way to incorporate us into every table …. you could do the same with the squares in Savannah!

Your Dad should be able to do the wood parts easily enough.

You can buy the metal fleur de lis shapes at stores that sell drapery rods. They sell finials in that shape.

Ugh I freaking love it and am experiencing a bit of wedding envy right now (I lived in Savannah for 6 months and would give ANYTHING to go back)!  I think the chalkboards would look amazing, especially if you could attach the rods that Julies1949 suggested.  Which squares are you going to incorporate and where are you getting married??
