I need some inexpensive and easy table number ideas. I love the tolsby Ikea frame idea, but don’t have an Ikea near me and the prices online are very high.
Colors scheme is silver (gray), sangria and plum.
Any ideas would be helpful!

sadly there are not enough or the shipping is outrageous.

Rhode Island isn’t that big. Can you go to the New Haven, CT store?
If not, do you not know anyone who lives in another state who could purchase them and ail them to you? If I lived in the USA, I would be happy to do it.
Have you tried Craigslist?
For other ideas, does your wedding have any theme? Are you having floral centerpieces?

I made ours using wine corks from bottles we’d shared. They were just 3 corks, rubber banded together, with a ribbon covering the rubber band. The table number then fits between the corks (and I made the table cards on parchment cardstock I bought for cheap on Amazon). Here they are as I was making them, and on the table at our reception. Of course, it helps that I’d saved our corks. I originally saw the idea on Etsy, and though it was easy enough to do it myself. I’m not remotely crafty, but learned a lot about my abilities during the planning process 🙂 Do a search on Etsy, and you may find something affordable that you like, or that you can easily imitate.

What about painted wooden numbers? These were $1 at ACMoors (craft store). We are doing years and then photos of us at that time- ’87, ’88, etc. Frames from garage sales. . (This photo is just for the mock up). See the wooden numbers?

We’re just buying unfinished wooden house numbers and painting them.

I think this is a cute idea!
You could just use the black cards and it would match your colors!

If you live in RI, the Stoughton, MA Ikea is not that far. That’s the Ikea I go to from north of Boston. Probably a similar distance from RI. I bought dark wood frames for $2ea from Ikea. They were perfect.
