New England Fare

Compton Clambake hosts a non-traditional rehearsal dinner filled with New England fare overlooking Newport Harbor for Charlotte and John.

With many fond childhood memories of lobster dinners, Charlotte and John decided to host a clambake  in Newport for their rehearsal dinner. Compton Clambakes came equipped with stone, seaweed, a bonfire wood pit, and of course – shellfish! The bakemaster treated guests to a fun history lesson by the fire pit before everyone feasted on what Charlotte describes as “the best lobsters, steamers, and clams we’ve ever tasted.” Exquisite Events teamed up with Sayles Livingston Flowers to set the mood for the dinner with flowers and décor. Guests dined at white picnic tables covered with blue and white linens. Hurricane candles alternated with mini floral arrangements in white and yellow hues. As the sun was setting a canopy of market lights illuminated the picnic tables continuing the fun into the night. “It was a magical evening filled with laughter and wouldn’t have been possible without planner extraordinaire Stasia Anthony and the Exquisite Events team, or Compton Clambakes,” Charlotte reminisces.

Compton Clambakes

Who: Compton Clambakes

What: Catering

Where: All over New England!

Whether it be a rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, or just a good ole fashioned summer party, Compton Clambakes provides guests with a delicious experience truly unique to New England! “A clambake is such a New England cultural experience—a new experience for many guests of destination weddings and, for people who live or grew up here, a nostalgic experience,” explains Sara Oliveira.

1. Give us a breakdown of a typical clambake and what the client can expect.

A traditional Compton Clambake starts with a bonfire of local hardwoods and stones.  We use the heat of the fire to get the stones red hot and when the stones are just right, we separate them from the fire.  Then we put a generous layer of freshly harvested seaweed on top of the stones to create steam.  The steam cooks the food to give it that unforgettable authentic clambake flavor that cannot be created by any other method.

2. What are the other services you offers? 

We take care of all of the details so that you don’t have to.  We provide full service catering to handle all of your party needs including tables, chairs, tents, and tent decorations!

3. What are the menu offerings?

Among the traditional clambake offerings, we offer a raw bars stocked with the freshest local oysters, little necks, shrimp, crab legs –  which is a great way to kick off the bake! We also offer clam chowder, stuffed quahogs, clams, mussels, littlenecks, onions, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, native sweet corn on the cob, brown bread and stuffing, fish, chourico, other sausage, hot dogs, lobsters (the king of the bake!) and for dessert — pies and strawberry shortcake!

4. Are there any size requirements in terms of venue or party?

We can serve anywhere from 20-300 people. From an intimate backyard gathering to an oversized event tent!

Fairytale in the Spring

Blooming spring branches and twinkly lights transformed the Wianno Club in Cape Cod into a fairytale forest by the sea.

After Denys proposed to Louise on her family’s front porch in Hyannis Port she knew she wanted to be married in Cape Cod. The Wianno Club was the clear winner for them and they couldn’t have been happier with their choice. With only one design request, lots of spring flowers, she left the rest to her florist and planner. Allison Wildes Liset of Elegant Engagements was an integral part of the process as Louise was living in New York during the planning stages. “We could not have lived without Allison – she knew every vendor and was able to work magic,” Louise exclaims. The clear top Chase Canopy Tent was brought to life with an abundance of white flowers and spring branches, complimenting the coastal views perfectly. “The pure joy on their faces as they entered their reception, seeing for the first time the cumulative effect of our elaborate planning, was so incredibly rewarding. The guests had so much fun they didn’t want to leave!” exclaimed Allison.
