Unique Table Numbers

There are so MANY fab ideas for numbering (or lettering) your party tables, you just wouldn’t believe!  Frames of all shapes and kinds, flower arrangements, wine bottles with numbers… and here are a few of the more unique ideas I found:

First, from Brit.com, check out this fun post using scrabble tiles to decorate for your wedding or party.   Who knew that a scrabble wedding theme is quite popular!

Style My Pretty has another variation of the scrabble tile table number… I love the shabby chic look of this one:

Looking for balloon decorations ideas?From Martha Stewart, check out the fun Balloon Table Numbers / Centerpieces.  Inexpensive and FUN!

Just look at this wonderfully unique table number idea from the wedding co – paper crafted numbers from pages in a book.  LOVE!!  All you need is a alphabet and number template and some books!  (your local library may have some old ones they can donate to you!)

And my FAVORITE for most unique table numbers is this fab photo of ornate mirror table numbers from Style Me Pretty.  You can find great mirrors at estate sales and even stores such as Bed, Bath and Beyond – don’t forget your 20% coupon!

 

Summer Baby Shower Themes and Ideas

I have some super, super sweet baby shower ideas for you today.  Beaches, books, and BRIGHT colors are what these themes are all about…

From Aesthetic Nest comes some FABULOUS inspiration with a Golden Book Baby Shower theme.  These vintage books are easy to find in used-book stores, and what a perfect palate for a party!

Another great BOOK theme idea comes from Martha Stewart.  How about throwing a Mother Goose baby shower, with recipes like Mary Quite Contrary Garden Salad, Peter Piper Pickled PrawnsLittle Boy Blueberry Scones, and Miss Muffet’s Lemon Curd. I recommend setting out a menu card (or menu cards at each item if served buffet) since the recipe names are so cute!

And how about those BEACH baby showers?  Check out the fun ideas from the Hostess blog, with favors, centerpieces and food ideas!  You’ll want to read her entire post because she has fabulous, low cost ideas!

And going along with that, check out this INCREDIBLE sand castle baby shower cake from CakeCentral.com:  It actually isn’t that hard to make yourself (although a bakery could do it easily) – the cake contains two different size cake layers.  The sand can be made from crushed graham crackers (I like crushed Captain Crunch cereal too).  And flip flop cookie cutters can be purchased at most baking stores and online.

And one last inspiration for you, from Pizzazzerie… a preppy pink beach baby shower:  I just loved the hot pink with lime green!

What are your inspirations this summer?  We’d love to hear about them!
