Have a Clambake

By • August 17, 2012 • 3 Comments

You may not be able to tell, but summer's on its way out. Take advantage of the last few weeks of August and get yourself to a shore. Swim, sunbathe (don't forget to reapply the sunscreen!), and have a clambake. We've rounded up six of our clambake essentials -- we'll leave the fire-building and seaweed-procuring up to you. 

Beach Towel

 

Beach chairs are fine and all, but we'll never pass up a striped beach towel

 

Lobster Mallet

Lobster crackers seem boring when you think about using this handsome lobster mallet

Cornbread Pan

It's August and corn is aplenty. Include it in your clambake and then make corn-shaped cornbread using this pan

Chowder Bowls

You're going to need chowder bowls, we think double handled bowls are the way to go. 

 

Coral Napkins

Stick to the the theme: use coral reef napkins to keep your hands clean. 

Lobster Claw Shakers

Is there anything more appropriate for a clambake than lobster claw salt and pepper shakers? We don't think so.

Why write about clambake essentials and not include ONE thing that is essential to a clambake? Cornbread? Are you just selling stuff?

Cornbread is mentioned in the post, with the fun shaped cornbread pan. And no, we're not just selling stuff, we just round up some items we like and group them by theme.
