OK, now that we know how to eat lobster, let’s get it on the table!
I just found these cute lobster placemats. What’s great about them is they are paper so no matter how messy they get, they go right into the trash. The only thing that has to be washed are the napkins or if they are too messy also get thrown away. It’s easy to replace them as I have on hand lobster themed fabric which I cut into 18″ squares and hem stitch on the machine. Making your own napkins is an easy project and much less expensive than buying them.
No matter how casual the table, I like to have something on its center. With blooming things so plentiful right now, it’s easy to gather colorful bunches which this time are put in small sprinkler cans. I’m crazy about containers that require no flower arranging skills! The burlap wrapped candle holders I happened to find on sale at one of my favorite Camden shops, but they would be so easy to duplicate so go ahead and copy the idea.
To finish the table, I chose these glasses which were found in an antique shop. They are a little dinted and worn and pack memories of my grandmother. I’m betting some of you will remember these, too, and how cold they felt in your hand when they were filled with fresh made lemonade or sweet tea.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
