Como o tempo ainda estava bom e ameno, decidiram ter a festa no terraço. E que tipo de comida é que iam oferecer? Decidiram fazer uma salada de polvo, croquetes, patê de caranguejo, pão e azeitonas. Para beber faziam uma sangria de vinho tinto e um sumo de laranja para quem não gosta de bebidas alcoólicas. Perfeito!
