The Art of Entertaining... Brown Paper Favor Bag Menus

043b Some of my posts in The Art of Entertaining series will be focused on basic party planning and entertaining basics (like this and this).  I will also seek to provide you all with some inspiration for getting that extra special touch such as how to create a casual, but elegant brown paper bag menu.  It is a really simple concept that combines the menu and the party favor into one making it easy for guests to know what they are eating and surprises them with a treat at the end of the meal too.  See after the jump for materials and instructions...
