When hosting a dinner party at a restaurant or hotel it's a very nice touch to customize your menu card by including your logo, a ribbon in your company colors or simply typing your company name at the top. Often restaurants will do this for you, but if you want to do it on your own it's quite simple.In the templates section you'll now find three menu card templates for weddings or dinner parties. One version is long and thin showing a wedding buffet dinner menu, the other wider showing a plated corporate dinner, and the third is a square shaped menu card. There is no right or wrong way to do a menu card, just personal preferences and the length of the menu often dictates what shape works best.
You can emphasize a certain feeling with the way you separate your dinner courses.
- Standard menu card: Appetizers, Salad, Entree, Dessert
- A more formal approach: Course 1, Course II, Course III and you can include wine pairings
- An Italian theme menu card : Antipasti, Primi, Insalata e Zuppe, Pasta, Secondi, Dolci (anything in Italian sounds delicious doesn't it?)
If you use one of the templates experiment with changing the font colors or fonts. It's really fun once you have the frame work there to play around a bit. An earlier posting on wedding menu card templates, and great sources to order cards from, can be viewed by clicking here. Happy Hosting.
