Planning an event can be so much work, but so much fun at the same time. Thinking of all the details and coordinating everything so it works together and reflects your style is important. One of those details is the table numbers – those classic little beacons to help your guests know which table is theirs. There are so many ways to display table numbers these days that you are only limited by your imagination. We’ve put together some DIY ideas that will inspire you to show off your table numbers in interesting and creative ways.
The idea above, of the hostesses taking a photo of themselves holding each number is adorable. It adds a personal and whimsical touch!
Books get new life as they are standing upright with numbers attached to the front. An easy project to do with thrift store books and house numbers from the home improvement store.
For those who like games or just want to add a touch of nostalgia, use Scrabble tiles to spell out the table number.
Bottles can be used to display table numbers too. A simple way to use them is by hanging a number tag around the neck of the bottle. The “tag” can be made from card stock, mini chalkboard tags, or wood pieces.
Another idea is to place a bottle inside simple gift bags, and stencil on the numbers.
Stenciling can also be done directly onto the bottle. This way you can actually fill the bottle with water that guests can re-fill their glasses with.
Finally, you can use classic frames and dress them up. Use chalkboard spray paint to cover the board backing and write on it with chalk. These can be used over and over again!
You can also cover the board backing with decorative paper or fabric and attach painted wooden craft numbers with a glue gun. An easy project that can be done in just a few hours on a weekend.
We love all these ideas that are also easy DIY projects. With a little inspiration I’m sure you can let your imagination run wild and come up with your own personalized table numbers. Afterall, these little details add big style!
