Continue the theme through the buffet table by serving mahi-mahi (fish), green peas (polka dots), and a wacky and colorful salad with tiny red tomatoes. Serve beverages with wild names like tropical punch, berry blitz, and popping purple. How about tuna sandwiches using coloring of red and blue in the mayonnaise. You could use drinks with bright colors. Finally, complete the buffet table with small labels / cards by each item with the name and place cards with lines from the book on the tables.
