Washi Tape Buffet Table Food Labels

March 20, 2013 | Posted by Rachel Kashon

It’s no secret that I love to cook! Luckily, my fiancé does too! When we’re having guests over, we can get quite into menu planning. If we throw a party where the food is served buffet style, I like to create labels so that everyone knows what they are eating — great for people’s own edification and also wonderful for people with diet restrictions.

Inspired by the Buffet Table Food Label DIY video that I did for Kin Community on behalf of Paper Source, these labels are very simple to make and you can purchase all of the ingredients with one trip to Paper Source! I selected place cards, stickers and washi to match the color palette of my party. To make this project even easier, Paper Source provides downloadable templates on their website so you can be sure the text lines up properly on each sticker! Using the template, I printed the menu items on oval labels and placed the labels layered with strips of washi tape on place cards. Et voila! It’s that simple! Here’s an overview of all of the food labels — and a sneak peek at our menu:

Besides Paper Source, another place that I find washi tape in fun colors and patterns is Kinokuniya — an international Japanese book store with 7 locations in the US. I’m lucky enough to have one nearby in downtown LA. If you are into paper as much as I am, you’ll find this place to be a treasure trove of tools and materials! If you happen to have a Kinokuniya nearby, I highly recommend a field trip! And if you ever have a hankering for a burbon drink, I highly recommend the Grilled Peach Old Fashioned — it’s so incredibly scrumptious in the most dangerous way!
