Tip -
the parasol umbrellas wouldn't stay open and were very hard to write directly on them. so i then improvised and wrote our guests name's and tables they were at on sticker paper (blank labels) and cut them to size... then opened the umbrellas that day and stuck on the names and it kept the umbrellas wide open. I stuck them directly into flower foam board and covered it all up with sand as the last step

This is adorable!!! I love the idea.

But, if you have separate tables, it's probably best to have the place cards when they enter which give them their name and also the table in which they're sitting. Traditionally, tables would have numbers. However, some couples are more creative and name their names after a place, a quote, etc. So the place card could say..."Sarah Smith, Table "Las Vegas". Just an example. Make sense?
Thanks for the clarification... sounds like id better start thinking of a theme :)

These are all really cute ideas! Here's what we did:

We've been together for a total of 10 years (not including our 3 year break) and we needed exactly 10 table #'s so it worked perfect! So, we labeled each table number with the year that we've been together and then put an interesting fact about us during that year. For example, starting with 1997- the year we met... 2000- the year we moved to California together....all the way to 2009- the year we got married!

 

Everyone loved it and made it so personal!

I used our engagement pictures. We had a sequence of us falling in the sand. I photoshoped the table numbers on each picture and above the table I put the phrase "falling in love forever"

I think we're just going to spell out the numbers in spanish and have the actual number faded in the back ground. I'm thinking of adding a border in the same template from our invitations.

I bought little bottles of local Aruban rum and tied the name/table# to each bottle. It came out beautiful and made wonderful souvenirs. The factory also made a custom label for us with our names, wedding date, and location. Everyone loved it.

I posted earlier here before I had finished this project. We bought 20 different Talavera tiles from tilesandtiles.com (great customer service!). I painted the backs with terracotta paint & wrote names/table #'s on the backs with a silver calligraphy marker. For table numbers we used hacienda tiles.
