Marvelous Menu Cards & Party Paperware

With the Fall entertaining season quickly approaching, I thought it would be fun to show you some of the menu cards and other fun party paper ware that's available from Etsy shops.  If you've never shopped at Etsy, you're missing a real treat. Etsy is like ebay for handmade & artisan items.  You can find so many unique and wonderful things there in every price range.
These beautiful menu cards can be found at Amongst Lovely Things    http://www.etsy.com/shop/AmongstLovelyThings?ref=pr_shop_more     They have a romantic vintage feel and I love how pretty and unique they are.  I could definitely see using these at Thanksgiving with family photos.  They are $20.00 for a set of 12 and the shop carries matching place-cards.
 They also sell these lovely 5 inch wax paper bags for sending home delicious treats in a beautiful way.  They are $14.00 for 12 bags
Although these are shown as an invitation, they can also be made into menu cards, wouldn't these be fun for a Halloween party with an orange, lime green, or purple ribbon.  You want to talk about a classy Boo Bash :)  They can be found http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThePoshEvent?ref=seller_infoat  
I also thought this would be a fun and whimsical pattern for Halloween
These run $5.00 each
These are really fun paper napkin rings and you can print as many as you'd like for $3.00  Also from The Posh Event
Send your guests home some small treats in high style with these adorable boxes.
The Posh Event will send you a PDF file and you can print as many as you would like for $3.50
  If your having a  country harvest bash, a barn party, or a western themed party, these menus are perfect. They can be found at Noteably Unique    http://www.etsy.com/shop/NoteablyUnique    These run $1.55 each

Here are the coordinating  napkins that can be personalized for your party.
 If your having a Football (or sports theme) party, these Menus are great. I love how Noteably Unique made the menu line up with the game. These run $1.00 each. Now that's what I call a making a good score :)
 I just love the whimsy and pretty details in this menu card by My Lady Dye  http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyLadyDye  You can choose your colors and card stock.  These run $4.00 each
Here is another  Beautiful menu card with a black & white Chandelier  from My Lady Dye.  I think this would be a great theme for a Halloween Party ( think chic haunted house).  
Wouldn't these make fabulous treat containers for your Chic Haunted House party?  I just love the details on these candy cones containers :)
I hope these fun Menu Cards, and Party Paper ideas have inspired you to start your Fall entertaining in style.  Just remember, the most important thing to have at your next Celebration is FUN!
