Creations for 50th Wedding Anniversary

I had intended to post this well over a month ago, but only managed to get around to it now. My in-laws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in July. They had organized a whole fancy dinner for the entire family and felt a bit lost as to how to get their own menus and name tags made, so I offered to do it. Here are the results:

Right after printing, before they were folded

I also took their portrait, which I’m not going to post here for obvious privacy reasons. But it was taken in their yard and had pale and dark pink hydrangeas in the background. Hence the reason why I used these particular illustrations on their menus, so that everything would blend into one theme.

The background was printed in a pink damascus pattern, which gave a nice lace effect.

You can see it well on the back of the menu cards.

So I used the same pattern for the name tags that were going to be placed on the tables, at each assigned seat.

They loved the result. And I was very pleased to hear that most guests actually took their little menu and name tags home after the party, which is the biggest compliment I could get :-)
