Clam Bake day dreaming

It has always been one of those things I am dying to do, have a clam bake. Those brides that I design invitations for that throw clam bake weddings or rehearsal dinners…I envy you!! There is something so dreamy about the casual vibe of newspaper covering the table and eating with your hands…but eating pure luxury, lobsters, crab, clams…sigh. Here are some clam bake inspirations to leave you all wanting to crack into a lobster tail while sipping beer and enjoying friends.
