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!
