Lobster Bake Summer Soiree Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Lobster Bake Summer Soiree Planning, Ideas & Supplies

We fell in love with this great lobster party supply bundle that includes Oval Melamine Plates, (4) Butter Dipping Bowls and (1) Pack of 20 Napkins. Not surprisingly we now felt compelled to create an entire summer party around these festive products that could work perfectly for a Father's Day celebration, a 4th of July Party, or as an excuse to gather your friends and family together for no reason at all.

Most Importantly, The Lobster

Since it is summer, do not, we repeat do not fire up your stove and slave for hours trying to create the perfect 3-4 course lobster fest.  It is just too hot outside and truthfully, not worth your time and effort. Especially, since there is a terrific alternative that even if you slave for hours in the kitchen, will taste better than anything you can pull together yourself.  Instead simplify your life by ordering the lobster and all the fixings from Lobster Anywhere.  They will deliver everything from the lobsters and the lobster pot to the shell crackers, seafood forks, and lobster bibs.  Now add some chowder and crab cakes or sea scallops wrapped in bacon for appetizers and finish off with yummy key lime pie for dessert.  One stop shop with overnight delivery to ensure everything is as fresh as possible.

PIP’s Pick – Customize Glass Party Plates

Customize Glass Party Plates

The best party idea we have come across in eons — create you own reusable, customizable glass party plates! These plates will transform your table from drab to fab instantly!

Last year my good friend and colleague, Vicki, came up with the most innovative party idea I have seen in eons but it seemed too difficult for even a fairly advanced DIY maven to tackle without spending hours and hours on each project – reusable, customized glass party plates.  Vicki originally created these plates for our 4th of July Celebration party inspiration photo shoot but I have not been able to easily re-create the idea until today.  This morning I finally found the solution.

Customizable Square Glass Plate

Libbey Crisa Tempo square dinnerware is made of solid glass that is dishwasher and microwave safe. Sold 12 per case.

What you need:

This  8″ square dinner plate from Libbey.  Not only is it perfect for this project, it is the new hot look in dinnerware. Popular for appetizers, tapas, salads, entrees, and desserts. The possibilities are endless!

Dimensions:
Length and Width: 8″ x 8″
Eating Area: 4″ x 4″

The highlighted information is the operative fact here.  The bottom of the plate is exactly four inches square which means it is the perfect size and shape to apply clear custom window clings to the outside bottom of your plates.  These decals are sometimes referred to a clings since they adhere with static to smooth surfaces and are removable & repositionable with no residue.  This means you can use your glass plates over and over customizing them each time to the theme of your party.  Best yet Party Idea {Pros} has finally found  BuildASign, a merchant that carries custom window clings in the right size (4″ x 4″) with easy to personalize good-looking templates. Alternatively, BuildASign allows you to upload one-click pre-loaded clipart and your own text and images.  They make designing your own decal so, so easy!  Simply click on the button that says shop static clings.  Then browse their list of featured clear decals or choose to create your own message.  With just a click we were able to change both the image colors and the background colors to coordinate with our party theme.  And as we played around with the different options we discovered it is also possible to easily create a round sticker for a round plate but you will have to cut out the circle and measure the bottom of your plate to make sure it fits correctly

So checkMothers Day Lobster Dinnerware Removable Decals this out — we customized these 4″ x 4″ decals by clicking on the  “animal clear decals” button and then adding our text and changing the colors. Originally we thought we would create decals and then found the static clings.  Since the static clings would not allow us to change the background color, we simply saved the image we created to our computer and then uploaded the image (feel free to do the same). Wouldn't these make fabulous plates to serve that fabulous lobster & filet Mothers Day dinner from Lobster Anywhere?  Perfect for lunch too – just serve lobster rolls!  Yum.

Party Hearty!
