menu: lasagna, caesar salad, dinner rolls, berries, and a variety of batter up cupcakes (as long as they matched my color scheme- red velvet, chocolate/chocolate, vanilla/chocolate, to name a few). for drinks we had perrier, sangria with a fizzy twist, and assorted sodas. our neighbor also made the most melt in your mouth deelish! toffee brownies…

party favors: little brown bag filled with salt water taffies and a nautical inspired pen. yvette and i also made these origami paper boats as place cards. the mama also took home a diaper cake, small wooden light houses, and love! awl…
