Table numbers are an essential reception element: They are usually displayed at the center of each dinner table to help guests identify their assigned seats. But you don’t have to stick to basic (or boring) cards. Instead, use them as an opportunity to build upon your wedding’s overall sense of style. To help you get inspired, our Decor Editor has transformed these ‘tops with unexpected and not to mention affordable ideas such as petite paintings, nail heads, balloons, lucite, buttons, and chains.
