Hosting a dinner party, a brunch or a holiday celebration gives me an excuse to do one of the things I enjoy most.... design a menu. When meal preparation is under control and the house is clean, I begin looking through my stash of unique papers and select pens that I can use to draw up the announcement of what my guests can expect. I then display this menu prominently in the center of my table.
This menu, drawn on velum, was from a Thanksgiving dinner.
This menu lists what was eaten several years ago at one of our annual New Year's Day brunches.
The menu above shows the choices bidders had at my daughter's French Immersion school auction where I would donate a French tart each year. I like layering different papers.
Designing Menus.... Just another way to be creative!
