Lobster for Lunch

I love the the "Tory Entertains" posts on the Tory Burch blog. Wouldn't you love to be invited to this spring break lobster luncheon?

Blue and white and lobster are a few of my favorite things, so found Tory's invitation especially inspiring. I have a couple lobster feasts on the horizon... I owe my friend Pam a lobster pot pie, and have a "crazy lobster night" summer tradition with some dear friends. So what would my spin be on this lobster fest?

I would start with my favorite vintage blue and white plates.

Add some relaxed blue linens... and maybe some white flowers...

Or perhaps a pretty pop of pink! An outdoor setting is a must, so we'll hope for warm weather and sunshine.

What to wear?

Or this relaxed hostess dress would be perfect! 

Of course, it's the friends around the table that make the meal special. Who wants to join me for lunch? 

PS: Thanks, Amy, for the inspiration!
