Spotlight on...Menu Cards

Amber Daniels

These days you no longer have to rely on the traditional rectangular shaped menu card to wet your guests’ appetite for dinner. Menus now come in an array of fonts, shapes and mediums that allow you to show off your personal taste and style at your event. Below are a few of our favorites from the web and a one from a wedding held here at Peabody Opera House.

In lieu of personal menu cards you can opt for a large menu displayed in a frame or on an easel at your cocktail reception or at the entrance of your reception to give guests a glimpse of what awaits.

For a sleek and modern look you can place one or two of these menus etched in acrylic at each table for guests to take a peek at.
