From a dietary perspective, my family used to be "normal." No one had food allergies, and we all ate meat. Then suddenly everything changed. Now two family members who are gluten-free, three are diabetic, two are vegans, one has an allergy to specific fruits and several are spontaneously picky eaters (probably because they felt left out). Awesome. It's hard to bring dishes everyone can eat to holiday gatherings, but more so, knowing who can eat what is even trickier. This year I am considering labeling all the Thanksgiving dishes, and these photographic tags are rather clever!
We checked in over at Photojojo where there's always some photo based project happening. This time around it just happens to coincide with the dinner table. Sure there's little card holders or other retail based labeling systems out there, but there's just something funny about making a sign that says meat... from meat.
Sure you could just make a label on the computer, but if you're looking to take things one step further, this creative set up is easy to make and fun to throw together. Plus, since they're laminated, once you make them, you'll never have to do so again. Just tuck them in a drawer and use them for dinner parties and other social events.
