Menu CardStyle: The card should have the same look and feel as the other reception stationery.
Paper: Print it on a heavy stock, rather than on flimsy copier sheets. Heft conveys elegance.
Placement: Put it in the center of the table on a holder in a spot that's visible to all, or tuck individual menus into or on top of each guest's napkin.
Personal touch: Provide each guest with his or her own menu featuring their name handwritten at the top—it's the ultimate in personalization.
