Congratulations to this month’s winner, Jenna, who says her favorite summer tradition is traveling to her hometown to celebrate 4th of July with her friends and family. Check back on September 6 for another great giveaway!
One of summer’s sweetest rites of passage is the family beach trip. My family was lucky enough to travel to the North Carolina coast almost every summer when I was growing up, and I loved the traditions we established there. We spent our days catching waves, flying kites and searching for the perfect shark’s tooth; the nights were all about listening to the waves and enjoying the freshest local seafood.
Even if your summer is shaping up to be a land-locked one, you can still create a by-the-shore experience at home. The clambake is a beach-side favorite for its sheer simplicity: Just steam just-caught seafood alongside corn on the cob and baby potatoes. (Get our recipe here.)
Of course, you’ll need to set the table for your clambake, so we’ve teamed up with our friends at personalized gift shop Pretty Smitten and online lifestyle shop Waiting On Martha to give one lucky Design Happens reader this set of coordinated table decor perfect for an end-of-summer soiree.
Read on to see the whole prize list and enter for a chance to win the entire set.
