Yes, we will be having the red, white and blue but no hotdogs, hamburgers or apple pie.
Nope, we are having lobster on the 4th of July. When in Maine…….
We won’t be outdone though when it comes to having the right colors. We’ve got the stars and stripes covered
and even the cute paper placemats cooperate by having red, white and blue. This goes to prove that stars and stripes are totally compatible with my favorite crustacean!
So, how do we tie all these things together? Just take a look.
Now, for the rest of the table. A collection of blue and white dishes purchased last summer at Goodwill are added to the mix
and for beverages, these glasses. The goblets are actually for water I think, but, hey, they are blue so tonight they will act as wine glasses and cute little Mason jars that are for the kids’ special drinks will be for water. The two are definitely a study in opposites!
Napkins embroidered with a little lobster remind of the nontraditional theme going here, and the fold is simply a corner turned on the diagonal.
Well, there you have it, and now I must get to the kitchen to experiment with the lobster dish I have in mind. If it turns out, you will hear about it so do come back.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
