Louise & Jay's Clambake Rehearsal Dinner

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
