A picnic or beach-themed party deserves the proper dishes -- what could be more fitting than colorful plates posing as a lobster, sun, and seagull? Just cut parts from another plate and affix with double-sided tape.
Use our templates for the wings and claws. For the beak and sun's rays, cut out triangles. Punch holes from black construction paper for the eyes, then affix with white glue.
Download this customizable design to create your own menu; simply type in the courses you plan to serve at your dinner. Print it on ivory card stock (one letter-size sheet yields two menus), and trim the cards to size using a ruler and craft knife for a precise cut.
