A Lowcountry Feast for Four

**Warning - the sight you see may be offensive to seasoned tablescapers. Posting about this meal was an afterthought. 

Monday I wrote about our weekend at the coast and some of the local seafood available at one of our favorite places to buy it.  After visiting the Old Ferry Seafood House, we decided to do our own version of the Lowcountry boil.  There's a time and a place for paper plates and a roll of paper towels and this was it.  Tablescaping in the most casual of ways.  That afternoon the weather was perfect and a brisk ocean breeze was blowing as we enjoyed our feast on a vinyl tablecloth on the picnic table.  No fancy dishes needed as you can see!

Hubby, brother-in-law and nephew were all digging in.  I decided I had better hurry or it would all be gone. 

Linking my paper plate feast to Tablescape Thursday @ Between Naps on the Porch.  Visit Susan over there for some really fine tablescaping.


  1. Eating el fresco! Looks perfect!

  2. Glenda...we've been going to Holden Beach for 24 years and how do I not know about Old Ferry Seafood House? We usually go to Captain Pete's! Where is it? heading back over the bridge from the island to the mainland do I turn right or left? Just wondering!
    Enjoy your summer!

    1. Sush, when you're leaving the island, turn right towards Food Lion. As soon as you pass Food Lion, make a right turn at the next road that bears off to the right. Follow that road and right before it dead ends at the waterway and turn right into the driveway of two seafood houses. Old Ferry is the last one and usually has two shrimp boats docked on their dock.

  3. A lowcountry shrimp boil is one of my favorite things to eat! Your post reminds me that it's about time to do one.


I love to hear your comments!
