Hi, gang! I apologize that this is coming to you a day late, but I was a little under the weather yesterday, so I took the day off from work and even steered clear of my home computer and television to recuperate. I’m still working out the kinks, but in the meantime, I wanted to share with you all this week’s Placecard of the Week and bonus menu…
So…there’s actually a story behind today’s post and a sweet one at that. You see, this past Sunday was my sister-in-law Jenna’s and her husband Erik’s one-year anniversary. Well, most of you know that there are different themes that go along with different anniversaries. I have no idea who came up with this concept (let me know if you do), but most women and a few men are familiar with it. For example, for the first wedding anniversary, the theme is “paper”, so my brother-in-law Erik asked me if I would design a “paper” menu for him to give to Jenna for this amazing meal they were cooking together to celebrate their anniversary. Totally sweet, right? I decided to throw in a couple placecards just for fun.
When I was creating the menu and placecards, I wanted to design something simple yet elegant that would remind them of their wedding day. I also wrote out all the names on Jenna’s placecards for her wedding, so I tried to replicate her theme with a swirly, elegent stamp and black embellishment gems. I found this really pretty shimmery, pearl colored paper (although it’s hard to tell in the pictures), which I thought added another lovely element. That being said, I hope they enjoyed the finished product, but most of all, I hope they had a wonderful day. Happy Anniversary, Jenna & Erik!
