Talking table numbers

Today Janelle from Joan’s Heart is talking about table numbers! Thanks for your guest post Janelle.

Paper has its place in a number of things at an event – save the dates, invitations, programs, menus and escort cards. And, don’t forget table numbers! As guests meander throughout a venue, searching for their table, you can help them along with something different. Attention-grabbing table numbers are often a combination of paper with an interesting typography, color and/or texture, and a unique table number holder.

Here are some of my favorite table number ideas.

The table number is incorporated into the centerpiece, for a very clean, simple look. Perfect for an outdoor garden or vintage-inspired event, the kraft paper and handwritten style would be a great DIY project. (Image source).

For a rustic event, consider a simple paper number and a unique table number holder like these wood branch table number holders from Etsy seller, Sunday Hatch.

Like the rustic wood branch table number holder, this knot table number holder is great way to play up a theme, like nautical. Let your theme inspire a creative table number choice. (Image source).

Etsy is a fantastic source for printed and printable table numbers.
