Let's Feast Dinner Party Printables

Fall Feast Free Printables | Dinner invite, menu & place cards by Evermore Paper Co.

As the days get cooler and the hats and gloves come out, I am envisioning many hearty meals and fireside cocktails in the near future. Often times, my favorite nights are the ones spent huddled inside with loved ones and barrels of laughter. So with the feast of all feasts (Hey Thanksgiving!) quickly approaching and the fact that I will still be in London during the festivities, I can't help but feel a little tinge of fomo. On the other hand, however, it does present a new opportunity for Travis and I to come up with what I'm sure will be a fun and offbeat way to celebrate the holiday, which of course is something to look forward to.

In the meantime, I decided to channel my love of a good meal into some pretty downloads for your next dinner party. Complete with invite, menu and place cards, I hope these printables will help set the right tone for a cozy night ahead with friends and family. Click here to download.

PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS

I recommend printing on 8.5" x 11" white card stock. Trim marks have been added to assist with cutting the printed pieces down to the correct size. Here are the final measurements for each piece:

Invite: 5" x 7"
Menu: 4" x 8.5"
Place Card: 3.5" x 2" (when folded)

Less than a week until Thanksgiving and I couldn't be more excited to sit back and relax with family and friends while surrounded by mountains of comfort foods and tasty treats. This year, I've been tasked with bringing dessert to several parties and I'm looking forward to getting down and dirty in the kitchen next week. And since I love swapping recipes, I created these recipe cards so that I can share my creations with everyone.

They are available for download here. Each card measures 6 x 4 inches and can be easily printed on index cards or the card stock of your choice. They also make great hostess gifts when bundled and tied with twine. You can also find another variation here.

Enjoy and please feel free to comment with your favorite holiday recipe! Mine is for these mini pumpkin cheesecakes.

DIY Embroidered Tote Bag

Postal Tote // Evermore Paper Co.

This tote has been sitting in a box in my office for quite some time. Recently, it came in very handy as I was lugging a bunch of orders to the post office. I decided why not put it to regular use, but with a little upgrade of course. So I put my tiny hands to work embroidering some cute postal markings. I even gave it a personal touch by including the date I launched my Etsy shop. I love how it looks now and I can't wait to skip off to the post office with it now. 

DIY // Envelope Liners

I've been working on some custom projects lately and have become quite smitten with adding envelope liners to the end result. It's such an easy upgrade to make to an invite suite and always a nice surprise for the recipient. I also love how it allows you to express your style even further. I've created my own templates and thought why not share them with you. They'll fit most 4 bar, A2 and A7 envelopes, especially those from Paper Source. You can download the templates and directions here. And since I love looking at pretty paper, please feel free to tag your results with #evermorediy.

Textile Wall Hangings

I am currently obsessing over textile wall hangings. It seems like these yarn, wool, woven, and tassel beauties are popping up everywhere lately. I love seeing an artisan craft like this make a revival and I'm currently eyeing a big ol' wall in my office that would make the perfect home for one. I'm hoping my DIY skills are up for the challenge because I think it would be really fun to make one myself. Meanwhile, here's a look at some work from the pros and a few tutorials for making your own:

2. DIY copper wall hanging via Smitten Studio
3. Nude Mesa weave via All Roads Design
