The final step in your Easter celebration preparations…a pretty menu to display for your guests!
Truth be told, I saw an ad online for a local restaurant that was serving a mouth-wateringly delicious Easter lunch for four to six adults for $64.99…and was thisclose to cancelling my plans to cook for Easter.
I already have all my recipe ingredients and taking three kids to a restaurant after being in church for an hour sounds less than relaxing to me.
So here it is! My Easter lunch/dinner menu. My neighborhood is having an Easter egg hunt in the afternoon and it sounds like there will be lots of desserts there so I figured why bother making one?
(I am 95% sure I will cave and make something last-minute like apple pie or cookies or cupcakes.)
Having a pretty, printed menu is a nice final touch when you’re hosting a holiday meal. It also serves as a good reminder of all the foods you are serving.
It’s not difficult to make, either.
You can use the free website PicMonkey to create an easy, elegant menu for your celebration.
Go to www.picmonkey.com to begin. Select “Design” (as seen below).
Now select 8×10 for the size.
After selecting your design size, this takes you to page where you will spend most of your time, creating the actual Easter dinner menu.
You will see a page that looks exactly like the one below, with the Canvas Color option already open. If you want the background of your menu to be a color other than white, this is where you select it.
I’m going to keep mine white, because I just want a classic black & white Easter menu. So I will just click “Cancel” to close that option. (But there is always the ability to change your mind and come back to it later.)
If you do want a colored background, simply click on the color you want and select “Apply.”
Next, click on the “Tt” icon in the left sidebar. This will bring up a list of fonts.
Choose your favorite font and start adding your text. Next up is to add any cute graphics, which are found by clicking on the butterfly icon on the left of the screen.
You can add a border by clicking on the picture frame icon on the left.
If you are having trouble and need more detailed instructions, I go into a bit more detail here.
Click on “Save” at the top of the page to save the file to your computer. Open Microsoft Word and choose “Insert picture,” selecting the saved menu to insert on the page. If you don’t have Microsoft Word, you can use Google Docs in much the same way. Open a new document and choose “Insert image,” selecting the saved menu to insert on the page.
Print out your document and admire its beauty!
You can add further embellishments to the Easter dinner menu or just leave it as is. If your kids want to make it festive, they can add stickers or feathers or anything really.
Place the menu in a picture frame and display somewhere near the food.
