Joe and I thought about this night a looong time ago. La is still too young to really watch movies, so that part is mainly for us. She does enjoy the music and ambiance though.
We had spaghetti & meatballs(and of course the dogs too). We bought the DVD, book, & plate for Lala. Mommy & daddy had wine; while La got to enjoy a fine aged grape juice (a very special treat for her).
The cupcakes: I suggest a light cake-we used vanilla. My husband made homemade fondant with honey. Roll the fondant into spaghetti noodle strands. Pour a little amount of strawberry jelly (room temp or semi warmed up) for the sauce look. Top with three malt balls as the meatballs.
It was a fun and easy night!
