My favorite part about any holiday is always the party planning. I love creating menus and themed tablescapes and a holiday party is always the perfect excuse to get planning. For the 4th of July, I’ve created blue and gold star-studded free printable place cards and an easy to customize menu template. Whatever your theme– BBQ, dinner party, or just cocktails, these free templates are easy to modify.
To customize and print these at home, you will need to do a few things. First, you need to download two free fonts. Both are free for personal use— so make sure that you do not use them on any commercial projects unless you buy the commercial license.
The font used for the place cards is Beyond the Mountains. You can download it from DaFont.com. To make the place card easy for anyone to edit, I have created the template in Microsoft Word. The fold lines are added in a light gray and there are boxes around the place cards marking your cut lines. You can download your free printable templates here.
To edit these cards, click the pre-filled names AFTER you download the font to the computer. Clicking the name will open the text box around it. From there, you can type any name that you need and adjust the font size accordingly.
I selected the “Gold, Accent 4, Darker 25%” from Word’s default theme colors for the design on the right. If this isn’t your default, the RGB for this gold color is Red=255, Green=192, Blue=0.
For the navy text, I used the Word default color “Blue-Gray, Text 2, Darker 50%. If you do not have this as your default or are using another editor, the RGB is Red=68, Green=84, Blue=106.
To print, I recommend using cardstock for thickness. This 250 pack on Amazon is less than $10. Simply print the place cards on cardstock or another heavy paper and cut along the box lines. I always use a paper-cutter to ensure my lines are straight, but you can very carefully cut along the lines with regular craft scissors. Once cut, fold the place cards along the gray dotted line.
The font used for the place cards is Millennial Solstice. This font is also available on DaFont.com. I love this Millennial Solstice font because it has some great swirls. Again, like the place card font, the designer created this as a free for personal use font.
If you have not already done so, download your free printable templates here. Both the place card and menu templates are included in one easy email. Simply sign up and confirm your email, and you will receive both templates in your email.
After you download the font, open the menu template in Word.
Like the place cards, the text headings are all in word boxes. You can easily modify them to fit your menu by changing the titles if necessary and adding your own selections. I used the same colors as the place cards for the text. The gold is RGB 255,192, 0 and the navy blue is RGB 68,84,106.
Two menu cards will fit on one page of cardstock and there is a cut line on this design too.
