Don’t you wish some nights would never, ever end?
A few favorite snaps from our Summer Lobster Boil, Nantucket Harbor.
(colorful, mini popsicles right in the freezer of the grocery aisle)
The climbing roses at Why Knot, Nantucket Harbor set the perfect summer garden party scene.
As do the massive, magnificent Hydrangea bushes…
Lilly, who has declared I have a “cool job”, and she wants to be a party planner when she grows up, snipped stems and arranged them into water glasses for instant centerpieces.
We had two dining tables, and she declared one would be “purple” and the other “blue”.
Genius design detail, age 11.
Cheese board with jams and fruit pastes – including the addictive Plums from Boat Street Pickles.
Charcuterie Board with pate, olives, cherries, pistachio.
Mom’s homemade spiced pears for dessert – ontop vanilla ice cream.
Potatoes scrubbed and ready to boil in every shape, color, size for the 40 gallon lobster pot…
Hydrangeas fill the cottage inside and out…
Mom’s gorgeous picnic dishes set with mugs filled with disposable cutlery for our every growing guest count of – gulp – 26 guests!
Gorgeous summer produce set and ready…
And of course – the bar! Stocked with local Cisco Brewers, summer Rose and Prosecco.
More to come – wait until you see the lobsters! And clams! And shrimp! Oh my.
What’s your favorite summer party to throw?
