    Here is a picture of my Menu Cards! (It looks fishbowled because of how close I had to get the camera... the edges are straight, I swear!)

    Click the image to open in full size.

    The restaurant that we are having our reception dinner at will print out a menu for us, but I wasn’t liking what they provided! I was going to purchase mine off of a Etsy seller, because I couldn’t find the right graphics in order to do it myself. Luckily, BDW bride Ashley0802 posted the website — iDiY . They have lots of great ideas, and free downloadable graphics! Thank you, Ashley!

    My colors are chocolate, orange, and pink. I used power point to create the menu, and printed it on cream card stock purchased from Cards & Pockets. I used a Fiskar’s cutter to trim the menu card and backing. I then used zots to adhere the menu to the sparkly bronze cardstock. Viola!

    If you want to use different floral arrangements, I suggest using dafont.com. They have hibiscus, shell, and palm tree fonts, and a lot more you can play with! PM me and I'll send a template to you, if you wish! (I couldn't attached a template due to Upload Errors... I'll try to post the template again later.)

        I stole the idea of course titles off a knottie! I couldn't find her name though to give her credit. One of my friends asked me, "What no engagement??" and I said, "Not enough courses!" So I'm thinking of putting the Mai Tai round of drinks as the "First Date" and moving the rest of the courses down a step in order to add "Engagement." Mai Tais would be fitting as the First Date.

                Ugh. No matter what file format, how big or small, or how many points I have, whether at home or at work or hotel, I keep getting a "Upload File Error."

                Here's a URL to a file sharing website that will take you to the template.

                Maybe this will work! lol
