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!

First up, from Martha Stewart, Cupcake Paper Flowers!

And another Cupcake Liner Flower tutorial, from Intimate Weddings: They provide terrific step-by-step instructions with photos!

These adorable ric-rac flowers are actually for hair-clips, BUT I think they could be used as floral centerpieces in a variety of ways.  Another great step-by-step tutorial.  And although it shows the use of a sewing machine – fabric glue might work too!  From Oh For Sweetness Sake:


From Style Me Pretty, a lovely DIY Flower Bracelet… that, again, could be used in a variety of ways.  It’s a great tutorial for how to attach flowers (faux or real) to wire stems!

And finally, from Once Wed, an incredibly FAB flower favor box.  I know this is a little outside the realm of “just flowers”, but I couldn’t pass up sharing the lovey tutorial.  It includes the free template for the box as well as instructions (with pics) on how to make and assemble it – beautiful!:
