I was so close to buying those for my table numbers. Ended up going for an unfinished frame that I painted instead.

I used them.  They were a little low, but still cute.  I printed cards with the table names on one side and the menu on the other.  I’ll see if I can find a pic.  We put a famous movie quote on the placecard and they had to find the movie it matched…very casual wedding…only 10 tables.

I originally saw the frames in a blogger bee post.  I don’t remember her icon, but I think it was Miss Dolphin.

No pics yet but we’re spray painting them gold and using them to display our table numbers on one side and the menu on the other. 

ETA: For full disclosure, the frames don’t actually come with glass which I was a little bummed about at first. There are 2 plastic inserts that come with each frame but they’re stamped with this black symbol so they can’t be displayed. The frames are still nice but that is something that I would have liked to know prior to purchasing mine.

@UpstateCait: The black stamp is on a piece of film you should be able to peel off so you can still use the plastic 🙂
