With a Jamaican wedding, a Jamaican menu is a must! Our all-out Jamaican feast will be happening on Friday night (I’ll write about that soon!), and the menu for the reception will focus on tropical flavors as well as personal favorites of ours. While we didn’t have a specific tasting during our “research” trip in October, the food we did eat while there was delish. No tasting = no pretty food pictures, so I’ll give you our DIY menu tutorial instead!
Again, like our invitations, we used the same header, but swapped the colors, since we are backing these with bright pink cardstock. Next, trim the menus down to size. We printed them so we could get 2 per page.
After the menus are cut to size, it’s time to choppity chop the backing cardstock. I measured it out so there is a 1/4″ trim of pink on all four sides.
And finally, run a line of adhesive along all four sides of the white cardstock (the back side, of course) and stick it on the pink cardstock. We just eyeballed them, and they turned out great (although I did have to raise my eyebrows a couple of times at Mr. Q and his centering techniques. No worries though, we just pulled them apart and re-stuck ’em!)! I had a great photo-op of Mr. Quiche on the menu assembly line, but he wouldn’t let me take it because he “didn’t like what he was wearing”. Men.
Tropical, preppy, EASY menu!
As you can probably read in the pictures, here is our reception menu:
Salad Prosciutto & Melon
Entree Sugar Cane Skewered Chicken Breast with Coconut Glaze and Grilled Tilapia with Mushrooms, Spinach and Carrots in a Chardonnay Sauce
Dessert Vanilla Sponge Cake with Raspberry Filling
Choosing the menu was quite simple, as was constructing them. I bought 50 sheets of 100# pink cardstock (on sale!) for $8.99. The white linen paper is leftover from our invitations, so the cost has already been absorbed there. The biggest splurge (if you can even call it that!) was on the Duck brand roller adhesive. We bought them at varying places, paying $7 for one, $5 for another, and $3.50 for the final one. $24.49 for 40 menus = 61 cents each. Not bad!
