Focusing table decor on the assigned numbers is a fun and easy way to spring life into your reception. I’ve gathered a few clever and, of course, modern ways of assigning your guests their seating arrangement.

Why not kill two birds with one stone and combine your table numbers with lighting for your special event? With just a little spray paint you can direct your guests to their correct table by following this sweet and simple tutorial.
Materials: spray paint (I used gold), scissors, masking tape, pencil, glass jar, tea lights
Step 1: Pencil in your number on the roll of masking tape. Please note how tall your jar is before you make your number so that it’s not too large. If you’re not comfortable with hand drawing your number, print out a number on a word processor program and cut it out.
Step 2: Cut out the number and apply it to the jar.
Step 3: Set your jar on some paper you don’t mind ruining and spray paint the jar.
Step 4: Let the jar sit for 24 hours and then remove the number very carefully, making sure you don’t chip the paint.
Step 5: Set your tea light in the jar and let it work its magic!

Since I featured some great table number ideas this week, I could also see these gorgeous porcelain napkin rings used as favors/table numbers…you can even customize them with initials or dates.
