I think this was a neat idea to have a circle that would be cut out -- but I don't see why the names & date are upside down when this would be placed on the plate and would make more sense to have them above the menu. And the design doesn't really do anything for me either..

I think Andrea's way off base here. Having the names across the top would make it too boring I'm afraid. As it is, this design has a unique and classical elegance, and yet it's juxtaposed with the upside-down text that provides some quirkiness and prevents it from having too stuffy a feel. I like!

I agree with Andrea that it doesn't make sense. To me, the upside-down text looks text looks like a mistake. As if a person tried to string text on a circle but couldn't figure out how to wrap it on the bottom of the circle and still have the text right-side up. Maybe if there was text written all the way around the circle it would be okay, or if it was along one side. Another problem is, unless the card is professionally die-cut, hand-cutting looks pretty sloppy.

i think it's simple and chic! i like the upside-down writing... basically because its not the main information on the page, i can tell it's more of a decorative element. this isnt the invite, its the menu! and i love the idea that it fits into the plate!!! great job!
