Crawfish season is one delicious time of year and weekend boils are the name of the game here in Louisiana. Hosting a boil? Attending? We have a few ideas here at Simply Southern that will go perfectly with this spring time gathering!
So you’re hosting a boil, add some southern fun with this “Crazy on the Front Porch” Apron! You are the one cooking after all. And because there can neeeever be enough food at a get together in southeast Louisiana, check out Moon River and Magnolias for some tasty appetizer and side dish ideas! This old school, southern cookbook is full of delicious recipes perfect for any party. The Crispy Corn Puppies and Shrimp Puppies would be a perfect addition to your boil menu.
Add a little Louisiana love to you home during crawfish season and every other season with this gorgeous crawfish platter by local artist, John Hodge. Also, new on the floor here at the store are these hand stamped coasters by New Orleans native, Gary Schiro!
Party prep time : How cute is this Crawfish Print Kraft Paper??? What an adorable way to dress up your delegated “peelin’ table.” Crawfish are delicious, yes….but they are also a messy affair. Keep the theme going with this fun soap and even consider setting up a little cleaning station with paper towels and lemon slices.
Treat your guests to some “Boil Dat” Koozies or use them as favors for a crawfish boil themed shower or party. These fun koozies can be found right here at Simply Southern and are made by local Mandeville company, Vinylicious.
Perhaps you are attending a crawfish boil, in need of a cute hostess gift? We have several great options for you here at Simply Southern. These Nola Tawk “Seafood” Kitchen Towels are a perfect gift for any occasion, especially this time of year! Extend the seafood trend with SOS Shells, a great gift for your host and perfect for spring/summer grilling!
Another great option is “ Louisiana Cajun Deck O’ Meals” arriving soon at Simply Southern!!! Such a fun, unique gift, this deck of Cajun Recipes includes everything from “Big Easy Beignets” to “Crab Stuffed Mirlitons.” Yum!
