I need some table number ideas/pointers. I looked at the stands in stores and I just think they are rediculously expensive!!! Any idea is welcome.
Take a look here:
I saved this pic before, and might do something like this
how about something simple like buying the wooden letters at Michaels and painting them in your colors. Simple and ChEAP!:)
i made big 12 inch numbers in our colors an then we took photos with the numbers in front an then we are putting the photos in frames, we did decide to also put a 3 inch number in the bottom corner for the older guests
Still a work in progress (changing how I display the actual NUMBER).
I took pics last fall of "autumn" inspired items... and we're using the pics (below).
This past weekend, I went into the forest and picked up dead sticks/branches. Came home and made 12 "frames/easel style" out of twigs, wire and twine (pics to come) to hold the printed carstock/pic.
I purchased 4.5x6.5 scrap booking paper in my color (pink). There are like 4 different designs, but all in pink. I cut the paper down to 4x6 and formatted a document in word with the numbers, printed the numbers in my other color (charcoal) and put them in clear acrylic frames. I got the frames from Michaels with a coupon for $1.40, but they have them at dollar tree now for $1. I'll try to get a pic. Good luck.
These are mine. I purchased each holder (probably meant for pictures, they have an alligator clip on the end) for $i.47 at Pat Catan's. Good luck!
we did tent-like table names...tied some cardstock (which we already had) together with ribbon...3 pieces tied together...
I love to paint so ive always thought that painted table numbers would be cute! you could use a 3x5 canvas from michaels (come in pack sof 3) paint them a base color and then stencil or sponge on the table number in a contrasting color..you then could embelish as you wish. You can buy the little black plastic plate stand thingies from the dollar store and voila!:) wish i had a pic to show you!
