10 Creative Ways to Display Your Table Numbers



From nautical details to magical florals, these table number displays will shine on any tablescape. Check out these 10 unique ways to display your table numbers!






1. Mid-Century Modern Flair


Countdown the greatest hits of your wedding day with these whimsical vinyl record table numbers.  Have guests sign the other side and display in a frame for a cool alternative guestbook.







2. Charming Mini Bunting


For a vintage wedding, there’s no more popular detail than adorable bunting. Here, this sweet garland is miniaturized so that it can display the table number.






3. Wine Bottle Labels


While you can order personalized wine bottle labels with your table numbers, we think this option is much simpler!  Simply hang these labels from the bottle and greet each table with some vino!






4. Festive String Art


String art is currently a very popular detail at modern weddings.  Use this summer camp classic to create your own table numbers in your wedding’s color palette.






5. Nautical Charm


If you are having a traditional waterfront wedding add a touch of nautical to your tables with one of these cute wooden ‘buoy’ table numbers in navy and white.









6. All-Natural Ideas


Geodes are such a cool addition to your table.  Paint the table numbers in a golden paint with a metallic sheen that will blend in with the colors of the crystals.  Or, shape your table numbers out of plants and vines for a choice that is ideal for a garden event.






7. A Little Fun


You used to make funny faces and press them into these ‘nail’ art toys. Instead, use them to create cute table numbers. We’re betting each table with be playing with it before the toasts have even started.






8. A table-specific cake


Why make your guests schlep back and forth from your cake table when you can bring the deliciousness right to them?  Instead of cutting a giant wedding cake, serve a variety of layer cakes, giving each table their own to slice up.






8. A Chapter for Every Table


Combine silhouettes with modern typography by creating your table numbers from vintage books.






9. Brightly Embroidered Hoops


If you’ve got a steady hand, embroider all of your table numbers on bright fabric and then leave them in their hoops.  Lean them against a vase of flowers for a thoroughly charming and simple tablescape.






10. On Each Napkin


Of course, the table number doesn’t have to be in the center of each table. Find table number runners, or better yet, opt for these cool numbered napkins to direct each guest to their seat.
