Louise and Jay wanted an East Coast style clambake for their California rehearsal dinner. We brought in iconic red lobsters and a blue & white seersucker pattern for the linens from La Tavola and place cards from Tiny Pine Press. Lobsters, corn and potatoes with side salad made a fun family style dish and each guest took home a red lobster cracker as a favor and wore bibs with Louise & Jay's name on the front.
For the cocktail tables and escort card display I made thick rope balls to bring in that nautical decor. For low-key centerpieces we spray painted table numbers onto metal buckets where guests could toss their lobster discards. Photos by Kristen Loken
