Nautical decorations: The invitation stated “Sail Over to Celebrate.” On the table were sailboats, crocheted whales. Guests were asked to write a “message in a bottle” (good wishes or advice for the parents-to-be) for the Eagan family.

The centerpiece of red tulips, white roses and blue hydrangeas with sailboats was provided by Alli's grandmother, Marjorie Polk.
