The ladies over at Bird and Banner were kind enough to send over this lovely table number and centerpiece idea made with vintage books and colored tape(yes, tape!) for me to share with you today. Not only would this DIY act as a great alternative to fresh flower centerpieces, but it’s also super easy to make which is always nice for the folks(including me!) who weren’t gifted with the craft gene.

First find a great used bookstore and spend some time roaming the aisles for great looking books with romantic titles on the spine. We found some beautiful books in no time and at minimal cost at our favorite local book store. Choose one book to create your table number and lightly sketch out the number in a white charcoal pencil onto book cover. Choose one color of washi tape and place in line with you sketch.
Choose your second color of washi tape, and repeat. Choose your third color and repeat.
Trim loose edges to finish. Stack remaining books to create the centerpiece. Style with vintage ink bottles and flowers to finish.
