Spotlight on Menus

Here are some delectable menu presentations to get you through the afternoon....

Love these wine bottle labels with the menu printed on them-- very cute, and functional! (Source: Creative Crabbe)

This hand-illustrated menu is gorgeous, from the calligraphy to the ruffled edging. (Source: Designs by Robyn Love)

Apparently, the kids' toy that inspired these menus goes by two names: fortune tellers and cootie catchers. The latter isn't exactly appetizing, but they are very playful-- good for the wedding of childhood sweethearts, perhaps? Source: Kat's Krafts and Cami's Paperie.

Adore the vintage charm and simplicity of this menu-- very elegant! (Source: Two For Joy Paper)

A scrolled menu tied with a ribbon and adorned with a peacock feather has an Old World feel to it. (Source: Peacock Invitations)

More Fun Paper Finds from Etsy!

Today we're continuing our celebration of all things papery with more fun finds from Etsy!

True story: in high school my friends and I made Bingo cards to entertain ourselves during boring glasses. The "Bingo" word was always some ridiculous phrase you had to work into the class discussion. For example, "Daisy's husband in The Great Gatsby is a one-legged pirate monkey." Yeah, we thought we were pretty clever. And so obviously, I find these Wedding Lingo Bingo cards pretty entertaining! (Source: Tie That Binds Weddings)

From the same Esty shop: customized matchboxes. I will refrain from making a 'perfect match' pun-- wouldn't want to ignite any wrath from an enflamed readership!! (Source: Tie That Binds Weddings)

Raise your hand if you're surprised that I loved these adorable cupcake toppers from My Lady Dye. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Hands down, these are the fanciest confetti cones I've ever seen. (Source: My Lady Dye)

Sparklers are another classic send-off for couples at the end of the night. We usually display them in buckets but I might become a convert to these personalized sparkler holders. (Source: Print Your Party)

And maybe my favorite find of the day: personalized luggage tags with real personality! (Source: C'est Superb)

That's all for now! But be sure to come back later today for some very appetizing menu ideas! (Okay, I'll stop punning now. Really.)
