Project

Lobster Place Cards

Created By: Johnny Miller/Brown Bird Design

Introduction

Nothing pulls a party together like a motif and a vibrant palette. Set the tone in advance with claw-shaped invitations. Then use lobster-red and sail-white hues on place cards and festive flag streamers. Striped dish towels serve as napkins -- the generous size is just right for a lobster feast.

    Clever; snappy!! At each place setting, I'm propping a claw in a shallow finger bowl filled with a bit of sand. Also ran a bead of glitter glue along the insde of the claw. Pass the butter, please!
