I've had these lobster table linens for quite a while and I've been waiting to do a post with them.
This morning when our grandsons came out to the pool in their lobster swim trunks, I knew that today was the day!
I set the table pool side with a red/wht/blue color story.
The placemat and napkin came from Homegoods several years ago. I used them over a plain white hotel linen cloth.
I used these chargers from Portugal. They sort of remind me of the Nantucket basket design.
Next was these red dinner plates from Ballard Designs.
Then these crab salad plates from Target. They are on sale now for $1.25. What a deal.
These blue glasses have been around forever.
The red flatware and the lobster pick are all from Target. Most of the lobster themed stuff is from Target from several years ago
like this bucket that I used for the napkin and the flatware with the lobster pick.
I set one at each place.
Here's the placecard holder.
and here's the individual butter warmer.
I almost never use these kinds of "gems" on a table, because I find them just too kitchy, but this table is all about the kitch!
A simple shell holds the salt and pepper with a horn spoon.
Years ago, some houseguests brought us this three dimensional seafood platter and at the time, I thought it was the ugliest thing I had ever seen. Well....tastes evolve, and now I love it.
I like to use this souvenier from Seaside, Florida as an ice bucket when we have a casual, beachy dinner.
I got these desert plates from Homegoods about two weeks ago.
This red scolloped pottery bowl holds greens and daisies from our garden. Then, after I had taken some pictures, my daughter suggested that we add some blue hydrangeas and it looked so much better. Thanks, Susie!
This made a fun, casual table pool-side.
It's a good thing, since that's where we spent the last day of their Camp Neena/Boppa.
It was 102 degrees today, so this was the perfect place to be. I'll miss these guys soooo much, as they bring such joy to us.
Here's a disclaimer: We did NOT have lobster tonight. We cooked salmon and had it over caesar salad and the dessert plates were not even used, as we served a very child-friendly ice cream sandwich for dessert. You go with that they are most likely to eat, and lobster was just not worth the risk. However, the five year old's favorite soup is Turtle Soup, so who knows....they might have loved it!
