Old window becomes menu board


Two days to go and we are almost ready for the big day! These old windows will serve as menu board and seating plan.

After searching through my fathers farm house we found three nice old windows which we cleaned up and then used a white pen to write with. The windows will be placed next to each other and around the edges we have written the guests names and in the two central panels we have presented the menu.


I started off by choosing a font I liked and adapted the size to fit the given space of the window, it took a bit of calculation but once that was done I just had to print it out and tape it to the back of the window with magic tape (which is easier to peal off and does not leave any glue marks on the glass.) Then with a steady hand work your way down, starting at the top so not to smudge the text as you go on. Then simply remove the printed sheet of paper and you are left with neatly presented text.
