Set a lovely picnic table with a summertime tablecloth, add a vase of wild flowers, use cleaned oyster or clam shells for salt and pepper containers. Have coolers filled with lots of ice for beverages (champagne, wine, lemonade & sodas). Bring nice thick cloth napkins in summertime colors. Include some candles you can place inside cleaned out canning jars for a little sparkle in the evening. Don't forget matches or fire sticks. Bags of marshmallows for roasting (include sticks for them) and don't forget the baby wipes to clean up messes and hands.
Next when the rocks are hot to sizzle a drop of water, rake off the coals from the fire and cover rocks with thick wet seaweed in layers. Place the food packets or baskets on the seaweed and cover with more seaweed. Then cover the entire project with a large wet tarpaulin. After about 3 hours, your clambake should be ready to eat. Have lots of salt, pepper, butter, & fresh cut lemons ready and some sides, including beverages (such as chilled wine, lemonade, ice tea) and desserts.
