Clam Bake Inspiration

clambake1Last weekend, we were invited to a friend’s annual clam bake on the beach.  The whole scene looked like a J.Crew Ad.  A traditional clam bake consists of steaming lobster, clams, corn and potatoes over heated rocks and seaweed in a hole.  Sounds cool but really who has the time for that?  You can hire a catering company or DIY in your kitchen.  We are hosting our own clam bake next weekend as the last Summer hoorah!  I’ve been researching the best recipes and thinking of the decor.  I’m also looking at this clam bake as inspiration.  The weather could not have been more perfect and I couldn’t stop taking photos of the beautiful scene and the colors of the ocean and sky.  When the sunset, it was s’mores time and I couldn’t help myself but to get really excited; like a little kid.  It was the perfect party for the perfect Summer day.  Stay tuned for our own clam bake.
