CELEBRATIONS: Woodland Table Numbers

Woodland Table Numbers via homework (6)If you’re planning a large gathering or a wedding, table numbers can keep things organized and add a special touch to each table. You can go all out and order elaborate floral arrangements to house your numbers, or you can diy using simple terracotta pots, moss and a cuttings from your yard.

Woodland Table Numbers via homework (2)For this centerpiece, I painted small terracotta pots with craft paint. Paint the bottom part first with white paint and once it’s dry, add the gold paint to the rim. Insert a piece of floral foam and then cover with moss. Use cuttings from fern plants and other hardy bushes from your garden. I also added a small stem that still had some small acorn caps attached.

Woodland Table Numbers via homework (1)The wood slice pick is from the dollar store. There were four in each pack so this is a really budget-friendly way to add numbers.

To write on the wood slice, I used a stencil. I penciled the outline and then filled in the number with a fine black pen.

You can keep the same theme on the table by adding the greenery to glasses, napkin rings or just tossing pieces of moss around.

To easily add a sprig of moss to a champagne stem, use a small piece of clear tape to stick on the stem.

Add some pretty ribbon over the tape. I used vintage seam binding and I love the way it gently drapes off the stem.

This is a fun and inexpensive way to spruce up a table. To add even more of a Woodland look, add a few mushrooms or small deer figurines. Fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
