Growing up on the coast of Maine I’ve had my share of Maine Lobster. My first job at 13 was waitressing for the infamous Foster’s Clambakes & Catering for three years. It was the best job ever, getting to travel to the Boston Tea Party Ship, Newport, RI mansions, Home Bakes and so much more! I have never tired of eating this meal, that many call a delicacy. However in Maine, lobster is a super casual dining experience. You will find tourists scoured around Maine eating lobster, lobster rolls, and lobster stew at picnic tables, backyard parties, on the beach, etc… It can be a messy experience, so keeping your table simple is key! Here I share a simple, impromptu summer lobster tablescape on our farmhouse porch in Vermont.
We boil our lobsters on the grill and a 1.5-pound lobster is a perfect size for me!
Love these amber vintage glasses that were my mother’s along with the little tin cups for the butter that I found at a local consignment shop.
The Christmas Tree Shops has a great line of lobster tableware. This is where I found these lobster plates, red placemats, and the “VINTAGE” glass bottle for our lobster tablescape here today.
Pin these ideas for later!

Last fall I found this rattan wicker outdoor set at an estate sale. It was in perfect condition and I love the evergreen against the red house.
Along with the lobster, I will also serve corn on the cob, dinner rolls, and a salad. That is all that is needed. Such a simple and delicious alternative to outdoor grilling!
I’m so glad you dropped by, and if you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you enjoyed your visit with us here today at our Home in Vermont.
