Last week my assistant Krista threw a party for Cinco de Mayo (I love the random-excuse-to-party-holidays!) and she and I had a conversation about how much people love signage and directions. Krista, ever the fabulous hostess, had labels on all of the food and drinks, including the best directions I have ever read for making The Perfect Taco. In fact, they were the only directions I’ve ever read for making a Taco, much less a perfect one. Everyone loved them. Posted over the Taco station started were the instructions:
1. Fill your Taco Shell with Juicy meat
2. Pile on lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese
3. Enjoy your Taco
Sometimes the littlest things are the most fabulous.
Needless to say, Krista’s Cinco de Mayo was a success!
If you have time for DIY projects for your wedding, signage is a sure fire way to tickle your guests and make them smile. Seriously, anything that reflects you and your fiance, whether it be silly or serious is a great way to let your personalities shine through.
In March I designed a booth at the Soolip Wedding at Vibiana for cake baker and friend NancyKay of NancyKay’s Confections and I made a sassy, springy, sparkly sign to hang above the booth. Below are the directions of how to make something similiar. It was easy and fun.
1. Choose a blocky, simple font, print off the letters on regular paper, tape the letters to a pre-colored foam board, then used an exacto knife to cut out the lettering.
