Simple Summer Lobster Tablescape

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 the perfect size for me!





Luv these amber vintage glasses that were my mothers 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.












Pin these ideas for later!












Last fall I found this Raton Wicker Outdoor Set at an Estate Sale. It was in perfect condition and I luv 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 out door grilling!





Pin It!

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
