Recycled Table Numbers

A couple of weekends ago, JT and I were walking around Little Italy and stopped into one of our favorite stores, Architectural Salvage. Their store is a treasure chest of rescued antique decorative items, from old glass bottles to a giant neon "Casino" sign.

Casually strolling through the store, I got distracted by the bins of old house numbers and thought "these would make the coolest table numbers at the reception!" So we snatched up a bunch, all wonderfully mismatched.

Of course, then I got home and started checking all the wedding blogs I usually read to see if I could find some pictures of any similar ideas. Which I did. I think this has been posted on several wedding blogs, and I'm not sure where the original photo came from, but I found it via Once Wed.

I guess it means that my idea wasn't totally original, but hey, great minds think alike!
