A Homespun Wedding - Table Names

 

When it came to the tables I knew I didn't want numbers. In my mind I was worried that people might rate how important they were to us by their table number when in fact everyone was special to us so naming tables was definitely the way I wanted go.

 
I love that Joe and I are a team, we deal with things together and our marriage made us an official team. So I decided to choose great teams, in fact great double acts as our table names. Joe chose Sharkey & George for our table name, as it was a favourite cartoon of his growing up. When it came to how to make the table names I wanted to do something a little different. As a designer of soft furnishings and a crafty lady I always have fabric in my house. I picked up some wooden embroidery hoops and set to work

 
First of all I used a fabric pencil to draw out the table names then I used chain stitch to embroider the names. These then rested against a bottle vase on each table. I wanted to keep the wedding looking homespun and homely and these fitted into that theme perfectly. What do you think? What did you do for your tables?
