Menus are always a part of lunch or dinner when we entertain. It's a souvenir of the afternoon or evening plus our guests know what they're going to eat. We make one for each guest and sometimes, we put also use them as placecards and put their name on the top.
Often, we take a picture of the table set up for that particular party and use that picture on the menu. We do that often especially when it is out of town company -- the menu is a souvenir but the picture makes it even more so
I entertained friends for lunch during our town's All School Reunion. A girl who lived at Linderhof when she was in high school and six of her friends. It was fun for her to be back here . . . and it was fun for me to have them.
The menu for that luncheon -- which turned out more pink because I was running out of my color cartridge. But I liked the pink, and so each guest had a menu with a "pink" picture of the table that day.
The plate with the trio of salads.
And dessert! Served on a plate with pink flowers!
Menus -- a tradition at Linderhof whenever we have guests!
It's Saturday and time for Pink Saturday -- so please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound -- for this Saturday besides Pink -- there may be red, white and blue -- it is the Fourth Weekend after all!
I think it's a marvelous tradition and so easy to do with computers and printers. Did you do this in some fashion before you could print them at home easily?
Yes, on a typewriter, and photo copied them. Graphics were on a kindergarten level as well!
Oh...my...goodness! That dessert!!!
I think this is a lovely tradition. I'd imagine that it makes keeping a hostess' diary very easy.
am going for the dessert! yummey!.. hope there is some left.. happy 4th & happy PS!
Martha, this is such a great idea. I'm having guests next weekend and I just might try that. These are our cousins from Marysville, Kansas. Thanks for stopping by to see me and have a great holiday!
Lovely Martha- we've done this many times and guests seem to love it. Happy 4th!
I like your takeaway menus! Sounds like you have some fun gatherings! Jacqueline
What a fabulous idea. I know all of your guests think that is so special. I would never have thought of that. Love the idea. Hugs, Marty
Martha, Oh how very special to have as your guest a young woman who once lived at Linderhof. The menu sounds great too. How do you make your Chicken Pasta Salad? Inquiring minds want to know.
Martha, this is such a lovely idea. That cake is making my socks go up and down :-). I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary
Very creative idea! What a great legacy this house has! And now in it's prime with you!
I am having withdrawals just looking at that cake!
Yeah, I'm with Linda...that cake looks fabulous!!!
