We’re growing our own pumpkins and gourds and a cousin of mine who is very talented is paint them with numbers 🙂

Was thinking of glitterizing some wood or paper mache numbers and setting it “pretty” on the table! =) I want subtle, but glittery!

Ooh – I just spent a bunch of time this week working on ours. Our venue is an outdoor education/adventure centre. So instead of using table numbers, we’re assigning an animal to each table and putting a picture of the animal’s tracks on the table. The escort cards will have the matching tracks. We’re not doing anything too fancy to make them – just printing out the picture on some nice paper and then putting it on a backing of nice thick paper.

we are getting married at a museum, so the table numbers will be small framed numbers on minutare easels!

I am not sure mine is fun or quirky but the few people I have shown the wedding stuff too have gone gaga over them – we picked out our favorite Sonnets from Sonnets from the Portuguese by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (they are numbered) and using those as the table numbers – here is an example

I think you could do something fun like this with albums (the song number and lyrics?) or make cute street signs etc

I hate table names. Really, I don’t want to wander around a room looking for a random word. The reason tables are numberd is so that THEY CAN BE FOUND IN ORDER! (this has been mentioned as a what “not to do” in the thread called “what have you learned from other peoples weddings”)

I ordered stickers that go on wine bottles that have the table number and some flowers on them.  My escort card holders are wine corks, so I thought it was a fun mixture!

@vmec: Eh, oh well.  I think my guests will enjoy looking at various pictures of us and learning little snippets about things we done and places we’ve been.

I plan on cutting a slit in the stem of a mini pumpkin and inserting a cardstock square with the number stamped on it.

@vmec:  If the wedding is small, it’s not a big deal to find your table name.

@Melini: Yeah, out of the ten tables at our wedding, I think people will be able to survive.
