Party Recap

We had Max's party on the evening of his birthday. The theme was a retro surf party with the main colors being turquoise and orange. We served BBQ beef and chicken sandwiches, pasta salad and cole slaw. We also had a spinach dip with veggies, stuffed jalapeños and a fruit salad. For dessert Max had his very own smash cake and we had a tower of lemon and chocolate cupcakes. It was a fun party and most importantly, Max had a blast.
