14 Stylish Menu Card Ideas

Menu cards can be your new best friend and here's why: they ease the flow of a sit-down dinner; they can moonlight as an escort card; and they pull together the design of your place settings! To save on costs create one menu per table (set it up on an easel or in a frame) or create a large menu sign for guests to read as they walk into the reception. See our favorite ways to make menu cards a stylized and useful part of your reception below!
