Yesterday was a perfect day here, and we enjoyed it by cooking out with some friends – I hope we’ll have lots more days like that this summer! This week, I thought I’d post some red, white and blue inspiration boards, and I’m starting with this laid back lobster boil wedding. Get your guests in the spirit with lobster bib save-the-dates. How to make things both relaxed and lovely? For table numbers, tie tags around galvanized buckets filled with flowers, and for place cards, write guests’ names on smooth stones. Serve up ice cream in paper cups with wooden spoons, and drinks with striped straws. Send guests home with lobster-shaped lollipops. And if this seems too casual for a wedding, how about a rehearsal dinner?

Mood: relaxed, preppy
Palette: driftwood, pale blue, lobster red

    Just lovely! I have a soft spot for this one, as my sister is having her welcome dinner at a lobster shack. We're going more for a red and white gingham look, though. Great job – can't wait to see the rest!
