Christmas Dinner Menus

This Christmas I am cooking Christmas dinner for hubby's mum, brothers, sister in law and Kris
It will be fun trying to fit us all around the table. Better make sure they all use the bathroom before sitting down to eat as I'll need a can opener to get them out once seated.
Anyway I decided to make Menus to go on the table, not only will it answer the guest s questions as to what's for dinner. But it will also remind me what I am supposed to be cooking so hopefully I won't forget anything........Well, that's the plan! but we all know what happens when we make plans.
Anyway, I never thought I would buy the "compliments to chef " stamp set from stampin' up, but last week I had this crazy notion to make menu s for Christmas day.
Alan's mum always says I do a nice table and I don't want to disappoint her this year.
I have chosen the baja breeze card stock as it is the closest colour to my tableware. I stamped the cutlery in versamark ink onto whisper white card stock and embossed with silver embossing powder. I did the same with the menu stamp . The decorative border was stamped and embossed onto baja breeze card and trimmed down to make the band running across the white card. I used versamark ink again and stamped the watermark "bon apetit " background. I then typed up my menu insert on my computer.
Adding comments next to some items for a touch of humour. My footnote was a public health warning... Any complaints.... keep them to yourself. DO NOT tell the chef or she may use the carving knife on you. Good job they all have a sense of humour.

The colour of the card stock looks a lot brighter in this photo due to flash.
