Celebrating the 4th

Treat your guests to a nostalgic crab boil with a modern twist.


Serve guests individual ceramic pots with a bounty of boiled summertime goodness: red potatoes, white corn, shrimp, mussels, sausage, and fresh crab. Showcase a seasonal display of fruits, homemade biscuits, and whipped cream at a make-your-own shortcake bar. Let the show-stopping meal act as your centerpiece and accent with bud vases brimming with red blooms, fresh white and navy linens, and strawberry-lemonade sparklers.

 D.I.Y. Details

Fill small jars with your own crab boil seasoning for guests to take home.
