Yes there are ways to check this. Simplest one is to use
preceding-sibling::image or following-sibling::table.

Alternatively, you could try an approach from the parent element, where
you apply all child element except table first and finish with applying
tables only. Something like:

<xsl:template match="root">
    <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()[not(self::table)]"/>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="table"/>

Just an idea..
