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.
Lobster Place Cards
1. Print out template; cut out. Trace template onto red card stock; cut out shapes.
2. Write names on cards using a white gel-ink pen. Use a ruler and a bone folder to score and fold as shown. Weight with stones.
