I love it! The watercolor flowers are pretty, good fonts, and I like how you do a larger font in a different color to summarize what the dish is. If I had to change anything, I’d play around with the “or” being in the “portobello” font, it’s a little random that it’s only the cursive on there.

Looks great, love the colors (orange is one of my colors too), but I would simplify the font of the pink description text a little. I’m Graphic Designer (and actually work on menus for a very large casual dining brand — that’s why your post caught my eye) and as a general rule a Display Font (Headline Font) should not be used for a lot of text because it is difficult to read. I suggest something without serifs and that isn’t all upper case, like Century Gothic, Futura Light or Avenir. Not sure if you have those types of options. Or if you really want to keep with the single font, I wouldn’t recommend justifying it so stretches or compresses the characters to fit on the line. i would instead justify to the right so the left edge is ragged. I created a sample to explain.. BUT, your food sounds yummy and the design is beautiful so your quests will love it!

@thenextmrsi:  I like the or in that color too. It could also work in the fuschia color.

I like the other commenters’ font suggetion as well, though it could work either way in my opinion.

The menu looks absolutely beautiful, the colors and all and the suggestions for the font are great. Will you add what the desert will be?

@thenextmrsi:  I don’t like the colored writing. Can you do like navy or dark gray writing?
