Every September, for the past 10 years or so, my friend has hosted a lobster party at her home. It is always a wonderful event and she makes in look effortless every year. They set up a tent in their back yard and decorate with the many lobster decorations that she has accumulated throughout the years of the party. I always tease her, when I help her decorate, that she has as many lobster decorations, as many people have Christmas decorations :-)
Her buffet table was beautifully set up with all her unique, lobster platters and bowls. Even the china cabinet was filled to the brim with the touches of red for the occasion. Everyone brought a dish, to compliment the lobster and the variety of food was fabulous. The lobsters were flown in, the day of the party, from Maine.
The bar area was lined with cute lobster glasses for serving the drinks.
Even the pool and the pool fence were sporting a few spiny, lobster friends.
As darkness fell, everyone gathered in the lighted, tent for dinner. It was the kind of party where you look forward to seeing old friends, you haven't seen in a while. It was the best kind of party, where the evening winds down slowly and you catch up with those friends, you miss. A beautiful, early fall tradition, that we enjoy every year.
Happy Birthday to my husband today! Love you so much <3
