You already have your menu in mind for Christmas Eve. Besides, to put water in the mouth of your guests and make your holiday table a real event, you decided to write your menu to present it at the table. Here are nine original ideas to write your New Years Eve menu and dazzle the guests in front of so much imagination. Get your pens!

First idea: on the board!

It is not a question of writing lines like at school but of using slate as a writing support. A first solution is to customize a presentation plate with slate paint, then you write the menu directly on the plate. You can also directly buy slate trays on which you will use liquid chalk markers, which are easier to handle and available in several colors (gold for example).

Second idea: minimalist option

If you are more adept at a refined decoration, it can be a real headache to integrate a menu on your minimalist party table. As always, minimalism imposes quality at the expense of quantity. So we opt for a higher quality paper on which we soberly write the menu. For decoration, we create a small notch above the menu to insert a branch of holly, fir or eucalyptus. Simple and efficient.

Because your menu is worth it!

Third idea: it rolls for kraft

Every Christmas, kraft paper comes back in force and increasingly attracts those who love DIY. First in gift packaging because it lends itself to all kinds of customizations but it also pulls out of the game in Christmas tree or table decorations. For your menu, it can play the table runners like a parchment or even serve as a tablecloth for the children's table. Add markers and pencils and let them take care of writing the menu on their tablecloth. A good way to keep them occupied before the party.

Fourth idea: it sends wood!

Classic menus remain timeless. It is possible to use a template to be printed on cardboard sheets. To bring a little more original touches, you can choose fashionable decoration patterns such as reindeer. A trophy-style reindeer head to pose as a menu header will be enough to create a Christmas menu that is certainly classic in its design but with a touch of modernity.

To be matched with Christmas bauble place cards.

Fifth idea: without losing the ball

Today it is easy to find Christmas balls in transparent plastic on the market. If it is understood that they are mainly used to decorate the Christmas tree, we can also divert them to create truly original menus. To do this, simply create paper ribbons on which we will have written the names of the different dishes. We then enclose our ribbons in the Christmas balls and put them on the plates.

Sixth idea: beautiful like a painting

You are so proud of your menu that you could frame it. Why not after all ? The idea is also very good and simple to carry out. Just find a frame and "stage" your menu. Choose instead a single large frame rather small for each guest because it will clutter your party table. Besides, you can put it elsewhere than on the dining table, a piece of furniture in the hallway or the coffee table will also be suitable.

Seventh idea: the scratch menu

This is astonishing if you like to surprise your guests. For that, you have to start by writing a completely classic menu. Once printed, you will hide the menu with scotch tape and a mixture of paint and washing up liquid. First put transparent tape on the parts you want to hide. Then paint over with the paint added with a little washing up liquid. It will probably take several layers for the whole to be opaque. During the meal, the guests will only have to scratch with a coin to discover what they will have the pleasure of eating.

The simplest ideas are often the best.

Eighth idea: the 2 in 1 menu

Why should the menu just detail the menu. For this idea, the menu also serves as a napkin ring. Very simple to make, just write its menu in the length. Once printed or copied, the menu only has to be cut out like a strip of paper. A piece of tape to connect the ends, a rolled up towel and here is a Christmas menu that knows how to be very useful.

Ninth idea: hue casserole!

Another menu that will be easy to delegate to children. The paper casserole is a fun and easy activity for their little hands. To do this, simply print your menu so that each dish can be discovered according to the manipulations. Adults will also have fun playing with this casserole dish to discover the Christmas menu. It also allows you to add volume once placed on the plate. The casserole has everything good!
