The weather in New England, what do they always say? “Wait 5 minutes and it will change”! Mark Twain was often credited with originating this saying, did you know that? Well, it’s been a very wet summer around here and our outdoor time has been really limited because of it. But I had some friends visiting from out of town and I really, really wanted to have them over for a backyard lobster dinner, rain and all! And as the saying goes, wait 5 minutes and the weather may change, well it did! I hope you enjoy our quick and easy outdoor rainy day lobster table setting that we thoroughly enjoyed.
We had an amazing time too!
Almost everything on our lobster table I found “Thrifting with the Gals“.
I’m so happy to be able to sit with friends again. I missed it so much.
Around the corner from us is the best lobster pound, Southern Maine Lobster Pound. We order lobsters ahead of time and pick them up all cooked and ready to eat. They’ll ship directly to you too!
Red, white, and blue was the color theme for this lobster table setting. It just screams summertime to me in all its glory.
A red checkered table cloth layered with a vintage blue thrifted tablecloth serves as this table setting’s foundation.
My mother’s sterling silverware displays its love in the adorble lobster silverware pouches made by Cutlery Couture.
Thrifted milk glass vases serve as the centerpiece with some faux geraniums that I had on hand. Since it’s been raining so much here they were a practical fit for today.
The lobster plates I found at the Christmas Tree Shops a few years back.
The weather ended up coorperating for us too. It cleared up about an hour before everyone arrived, and started up again after everyone left…
I think everyone had a really good time catching up, eating soft shells lobsters, drinking libations, and we laughed a lot! We are all old friends from high school.
I share all about our family’s coastal Maine heritage here!
Here’s another simple summer lobster tablescape you may enjoy.
