Channeling inspiration from Mari's birthday party invitation, I let the beautiful ocean set the scene, with a very simple, two-tent and two-table set-up; one for snacks and drinks, and one for sweets. It was a late afternoon party on the sand, so we opted for a few of our favorite small bites, no utensils required:
+ tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella skewers
+ watermelon, prosciutto and mint skewers
+ Eddie's shrimp dip in clear, plastic cocktail glasses, topped with crackers and chips
+ for the kids: heart-shaped organic cream cheese and strawberry jam sandwiches on whole wheat bread
+ to drink: sparkling mint lemonade (on-hand: vodka to mix)

picnic table? I hope so. 'Tis what I was aiming for. Thank you, Chelsea, for endless inspiration. Always.
I'll cover the sweets tomorrow!
