4 Steps To DIY Vintage Book Table Numbers

Create a DIY centerpiece-table number combo in just a few snips! You’ll cut into and stamp the pages of one of the books in each stack, but the rest can be borrowed from your collection and grouped by color or theme. Style your table with small bud vases and votives and your tablescape is set. Bonus: you can use the same stamps on the spine or front edges of a set of books to make your own wedding sign for the guest book or escort card table (like this couple did!). Follow these 4 easy steps to make your own pop-up table number with vintage books.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
