So the theme of our supper club is all things lemon. I'm super excited about it. I'm already envisioning fun decorations. We're going to serve lemon drop martinis, crab, tomato, and corn salad with lemon basil vinaigrette, lemon chicken piccata with linguine, and lemon roasted asparagus. This weekend I made it my mission to make a cute invitation to hand out to our supper club members. You may remember that Cassie set the bar pretty high with her invitations a while ago. I shamelessly stole a few of her ideas for mine. I thought I'd post them here as a supper club sneak preview. Enjoy!
Step 1: I created an invitation using Microsoft word, my printer, and scrapbook paper from WalMart. I LOVE downloading fun new fonts like this font I used for "lemon". Have you been to http://www.1001freefonts.com/? It's amazing!
Step 2: I browsed the summer section at Hobby Lobby and found these adorable lemon slice plates for $1.50 each!
Step 3: I baked up a batch of Emeril Lagasse's lemon squares. I was nervous because I haven't made lemon squares in ages, but they turned out perfectly! My two tips are to use parchment paper so you can get them out of the pan easily. Then, let them cool completely and cut them with a very sharp knife.
Step 4: I placed 4 lemon bars on each plate for each couple. Then I wrapped each plate with clear cellophane and tied it with a yellow polka dot ribbon.
Step 4: I slipped a clothes pin into the back of each tied ribbon.
