      I can't decide whether to do them - there won't be a ton of tables

          We are using animals instead of table numbers. Each table will have a handmade animal sculpture (zebra, lion, etc) and we have matching keychains for each animal. The keychains will act as escort cards so guests know which table they are at and will double as a favor.

              I have always loved this idea and wanted to do it! The only thing is, I was thinking of our colors being deep purple and lime green. I want to incorporate a "Mexico" theme (not cheesey though) with like papel picado, talavera, etc. Do you think it will look weird if the tiles are not the exact color match?

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.

                I don't think it'd look weird at all - it'll just be fun & colorful. I also don't think everything has to be matchy, but some people prefer a very coordinated look so it just depends on your preference. I loved having the talavera tiles & guests really liked that they each got a unique tile. And if you wanted, you could put votive holders on the tables in your colors.

                 

                in case you're interested, this is where we bought the tiles for the place cards (they had really good customer service)

                http://www.tilesandt...gotalavera.html

                 

                and for the table #'s (also great service - it looked like they were out of the #1 online & when I called they searched around & found one to send me)

                http://www.mexicanti...mber-tiles.html

                 

                 

                We bought the little stands online, but I've seen them at Michael's for cheap.

                 

                 

                While we were in PV we bought a talavera vase to use in our sand ceremony which helped tie things together, but even without that I would've still used the tiles as place cards/table #'s.
                 

                Hope that helps. Good luck deciding & let me know if you have questions!

                  I think this is soooo cute. What size of shells are you getting for these and from where and do you have a special way of displaying them?

                    I am going to have luggage tags as the escort cards (they will double as a souvenir) and I am going to lay them in a sand box. As for the table numbers I was thinking about luminaries...but I love the idea of naming each table after a song that is so creative!!!
