Grace plays waitress whenever she stays with us and has done this since she was a little bitty thing. This year we upgraded our "restaurant" and added lots of cool accessories! Grace also decided on a new name for the joint, which I thought was actually pretty clever. LOL. On the left side of the menu we do a "Today's Special" which, of course, is what I'm fixing for dinner. Randy always orders the special. ;) She also has a payment book which we stamped with the restaurant name on each ticket. After dinner, she tucks the ticket inside the check holder and places it on the table with a mint. ROFL! Oh, and I have to wear and apron and name badge as well. She is very serious about our restaurant. ;) We had so much fun making this set. I think it turned out super cute.

Here are the pieces close up. For the name badge I used a regular name badge holder from the stationary aisle. The same idea I did for the ladybug tag that was published in PaperCrafts Gifts From the Heart issue in April.
I made the table sign from QuicKutz Revolution die packaging.
