So I'm having a garden wedding...kind of! Our ceremony will take place in an old cathedral, our cocktail hour will be in an English garden, and our reception will be held in a ballroom with a balcony that overlooks the garden. I have a clear picture (in my head) of how I want the tables to look, although it does bug me that I don't have my exact plan on paper. Boo for not being a good artist. Basically, there will be lots and lots of light pink and cream roses in urns, milk glass, and birdcages in the center of the tables. Something like this:

And here are the birdcages I have:


So now that I know what I'm going for, I am starting to think about what I am going to do for table numbers. I have come across so many cute ideas and I would love to share them with you and hear what you think. Let's get started!

This is one of my favorites! How cute are the giant clothespins? 

Okay, these books are adorable and probably easy to create!

Words cannot describe the cuteness of these bird table numbers!

These adorable frames with buttons make me smile! ::swoon::

How 'bout this cute burlap wine bag? Mr. CF says..."Burlapppppppppp???? But that's for poor people..." Um no babe, burlap is very chic right now! 

Share your cute table number ideas and let me know what you think of the ones listed above!


  1. I am so jealous that you get the best of both worlds with an indoor ceremony and reception and outdoor cocktail hour! I think the bird table numbers would complement the birdcages you already have, but I also love the vintage style of the table numbers in the first picture (with the giant clothespins!)

  2. Gorgeous!! I love all of your ideas, especially the button frames! I can't think of anything too creative, so we may end up with just numbered wine bottles.

  3. I just the button idea picture to my laptop!Shabby and cute. Have you decided which direction you want to take? Im still trying to decide what to do for table numbers ...

  4. Karlita - I'm going with the giant clothespins!!! :) They make me happy!
