When we started this project with Morgan Burnham for her husband John’s 40th, we knew she wanted to have an East Coast vibe, because John is from there and they spend a lot of time in Newport, RI. In the invitation, Morgan encouraged guests to dress East Coast Preppy. . . and they did. Even the guys.
We had the most beautiful cookies made by Hayley’s Cakes and Cookies with with East Coast graphics + colors, and others with John’s initials.
Garbo’s Lobster Truck pulled back into the driveway and after passing lobster mac n’ cheese during cocktails, they offered truck-side service for the main course: lobster rolls + clam chowder. We had a raw oyster bar (with a shucker!) available all night for guests to stop by for more.
Our centerpieces were our silver Amalfi lanterns alongside our galvanized buckets filled with gorgeous, white hydrangeas.
