    I've done one for a supper club that closed years ago and the owner's children found a copy when clearing out the house. I didn't take pictures but remember trying to come as close to the old paper as possible with a solid black core inner to bring out the print. The menu was greased stained as it had been used.

    We did a bunch a while back (1980's). The customer was using menus she had collected on various vacations to decorate her kitchen. They were all different and the framing was designed to the menu. Some had beautifully designed jackets with the restaurant's logo embossed and others were little more than copy paper with the day's menu printed on it.
    This year we framed a menu from the tenth anniversary dinner of a restaurant in Tuscany. The menu was a ten course sampling of the favorite dish from each of the ten years they had been open, paired with appropriate wines. It was a simple folded piece of paper (very nice paper) with a personalized inscription from the owner of the restaurant to the customer on the left and the courses listed on the right.
    The design really depends on the elements being framed. Post some pictures and maybe you can get some specific feedback. I've never framed the same menu twice, and each had different elements of design to consider.

    This is a 1963 menu from a 1963 French Cruise Line that I have done. I have done many others too but I don't take pictures of them all.

    Joe, It looks great.

    And I like the panel too! I am assuming pastel, but I have been wrong in the past. Is it pastel?

    Yes, it is pastel. I like pastel because the colors are vibrant but still soft. I do a lot of French Lines in here, customers really like them and when using colors it can tie the whole project together nicely.
