Hi, it’s Jenni stopping by today!
Living with a two-year-old, and far away from most family, date nights and toddler free meals are few and far between. The hubby and I still try to get in small moments when we can afford to have a sitter for an evening, when a friend volunteers their time, or when we can get the kiddo down for an early bedtime. When we do get an opportunity for a toddler free meal or dessert, I try to make our mini-dates a little more special than our typical meals at home. Read on for details from a recent mini-date night and a free party printable collection.
The weather lately has been feeling a tad more Fall-like in Oregon and our yard is already starting to fill with the colors of Autumn. Inspired by the Fall I created a set of printables that are perfect for a date night meal, a couple’s dinner party, an engagement party, or a wedding shower. I love the idea of having a “Fallen for You” party to celebrate your love.
My husband came outside expecting something more ordinary (beers on the back porch) and instead was greeted with a pretty decorated table, a bottle of sparkling wine, and meal full of Fall flavors. It ended up being a lovely evening.
The printables included in this collection are blank menus (in a variety of coordinating colors), party circles, and party flags. The colors are inspired by Pantone’s Fall Fashion Report and the font used is a free commercial and personal use font called Matilde from Type Depot. For coordinating invitations printables and the recipe for the pictured Fig appetizer please visit A Well Crafted Party.

Menus- Print in color on cardstock weight paper, cut out, and write in your menu items. Alternatively, you can type the menu items on the menus themselves using a program like Photoshop or Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Flags- Print in color on either cardstock weight paper or regular text paper and cut out. Use party flags on toothpicks or straws by folding in half and adhering using glue, double-sided tape, or glue dots.
Party Circles- Print in color on either cardstock or text weight paper and cut out. Use party circles on glassware, toothpicks, banners or more. Adhere using hot glue, double-sided tape, or glue dots.
