got lobster?


Having grown up in New England and now calling Boston home, for me lobster is the perfect summer meal.

My favorite place for a casual supper of lobster and a cold beer is WOODMAN'S in Essex. If you don't live near the ocean, they will also ship fresh lobsters and fixings to your door.

They also make a great lobster roll.

For your next summer lobster bake, how about one of these fun invites from FINE STATIONERY?

For an upscale lobster dinenr, how about these monogrammed lobster napkins from POTTERY BARN?

Or if you want something a bit more casual, how about THESE?

Here are some fun lobster items that would be great to bring as a hostess gift when you are a guest at someone's beach house.

COOKIES from Eleni's

How about these adorable LOLLIPOPS wrapped indvidually in cellophane bags with a red ribbon?

I think this THROW PILLOW would look great on a white chair in a summer house


  1. I've been thinking lobsters this week - I haven't had my summer lobster roll yet! A few summers ago we threw a clambake (ok...a cousin to the lobster) and had the most adorable invitations. I dream of doing it again - next time, lobsters!

    Hope we get to hear more about the big Hamptons wedding y'all threw!!

  3. There's nothing I love more than a little lobster! We'll be flying a few in for my husbands birthday next week, so I'm loving this little bit of lobster inspiration!

  4. Off to the Cape at the end of the month and heard for a great place for lobster rolls in Wellfleet - can't wait to try those and to cook on the beach!

  5. I was just thinking of lobster for dinner tonight ~ in a salad. We live on the skirts of mystic where the lobsters are always in high supply. Thanks for the tip in Essex. I'm there at least once a month for shopping, friends and of course the Eliza B company store.
