Entertaining | Clambake 2010

We held the 4th annual (gasp!) Clambake at our home over Memorial Day Weekend. As always, it was a fun night full of great food, family and friends.

I set a long table in the back yard - using the "Clambake Linen" I made 4 years ago... it has been a feature every year.

I snipped some blue hydrangeas from my plants and used a lot of votives, pillar candles, sage green plates and white linen napkins.

I hung votive candles from our umbrella - it created great ambiance.

The hydrangea plants are doing well! I created this planter from stones I found around our property.

Samantha and her parents - her first clambake! We started the night with a bruschetta platter :

Chopped Olive Tapenade
Tomato & Basil
Artichoke & Goat Cheese Spread
Toasted Baguette Slices

She was dressed perfectly for the occasion - baby madras and her mizzou rattle.

Our friend Caroline... note the beginning of the navy and white theme - never planned, but always happens!

Katie and Julie... more navy and white!

Cocktail hour - Mr. Darcy is looking for any dropped bruschetta.

I found the white buckets at Target in the dollar spot - perfect for our shells.
