Lobster Bake Tablescape

Did you know lobster was once considered a poor man's food?  Yea, imagine that next time you're perusing the menu at a fancy restaurant and come across the lobster dish *Gasp* It's as if anything with the word lobster in it entitles a restaurant to rip you off.  The portion is generally tiny and the price is steep. 
Lucky for me, my husband has an obsession with lobster.  He will buy mounds of them from the local seafood market (much cheaper than the grocery store) cook them up, cut the meat out and serve his guests on a lobster platter.  I know lobster can seem intimidating and time consuming - it is a lot of work - but it's health benefits and sinfully delicious taste outweigh the workload, especially when you have an eager beaver husband who enjoys the labour.  
Lobster is super low in calories, fat and carbs - total skinny dish IF you don't dunk it in the butter - Ew.
It is also high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, Selenium and Vitamin B12 just to name a few. 
Here's how I styled the table for our most recent lobster bake.  
PS How cute are these lobster plates?!

Make sure you have somewhere (preferably concealed) to put the shells.
