Silhouette Table Number

Planning a summer wedding or event? Here’s a quick and inexpensive table number idea.


Table Number Carly Van Veldhuizen for Silhouette

  • For this project, I wanted to use the silhouette of the woman, but not the frame so I right clicked the image and selected “ungroup.”  Then I deleted the frame.

  • Next, I enlarged the image and cut it out of white card stock.

  • Then, I added the table number in “Edwardian Script ITC” and cut in black card stock.

table number 3 Carly Van Veldhuizen for Silhouette

  • Since this table number can be seen from both sides, I flipped the image (not the number) so it’s readable on both sides. To do this, select the image, right click and select flip horizontally.

  • Once everything was cut, I used a little spray adhesive to sandwich the white silhouette between the black pieces.
  • To finish them, I affixed a black painted dowel and “planted” the table number in the top of my floral arrangement.

This same technique would work with just about any shape from the Silhouette design store which makes it easy to customize your party or event!

I've been very fortunate to grow up in a family of very creative women--and even more so that they used their creativity to show love. My grandma was the original Martha Stewart (without the jail time or huge conglomerate)--she piped icing monograms on sugar cubes for guests, covered her shoes in fabric to match an outfit, made paper flowers and wove baskets to hang on people's mailboxes. If she was still alive she would have owned every Silhouette product--and used them better than most. My mom is the hippie version of the same--showing love with over-the-top theme parties, murals on our bedroom walls, super special holidays with loads of homemade décor. They both made the everyday special--and they inspire me to do what I do. I'm a maker and stylist. I own Girl Friday in Minneapolis. We make and style environments--store windows, specialty event décor, wedding magazine photos, etc. Our clients range from private clients planning a wedding to corporate clients. Everything we create for our clients is custom and one-of-a-kind.
