Peonies from the garden were already on the table and lobster in some form was going to be dinner, so how to combine the two giving each its proper due?
Lobster, no matter what its form, is perfect on these plates with the lobster image dominating the surface.
I found this cute lobster print material, cut it into 18″ squares and satin stitched the edges to make a complementary napkin.
They were tied with a simple overhand knot and then fluffed out to give a bit of frill to the plates.
Pretty casual up til now, and there was no relationship between the peonies and the dishes. That dilemma was solved with the addition of King’s Crown Thumbprint glasses which added a little pizzazz to the table setting and linked the dishes and the flowers.
This night not just any lobster would do, so I experimented with a lobster pot pie. Served with candles glowing on the table and twilight for a backdrop, it was just right for comfort and simple elegance.
By the way, check back in Friday for the recipe for lobster pot pie, and peek in at Tablescape Thursday for some creative table setting ideas.
