This pretty table number is a great example of a simple, colour coordinated print for your table numbers. It will complement any radiant orchid colour scheme, with its orchid motif and calligraphy font.

For those who would like to use table names, a radiant orchid colour scheme complements a number of wedding themes from which you can derive some imaginative table names. For example:

  • Middle Eastern vibrant colours – Name tables after characters from the Arabian Nights tales. For example, Aladdin, Ali Baba and Sinbad.
  • Bright circus colours – name tables after circus acts such as jugglers, acrobats and trapeze artists. Who will be the clowns?!
  • Summer theme – name tables after summer fruits and flowers.

Other alternatives could be:

  • Naming tables after the Latin names for types of orchid – Brassia, Miltonia and Zygopetalum to name but a few!
  • Giving each table the name of a colour in the radiant orchid palette, for example fuchsia, purple and lilac.
