Picnic Musings

Good Morning Darlings!

It is almost time for the 2012 Summer Olympics, when all eyes will be on London.

There’s something about nibbling treats while watching the planet’s greatest athletes that puts me in a festive mood. But you all know I have been super busy, and have no time to prepare a fabulous spread for my friends.

Whatever shall I do?

Fun Find Friday-La Plates

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

This week’s treat comes to us via my buddy, Eddie Ross, who turned me onto these awesome personalized plates. So adorable!

Of course, I’m partial to this one:

La Plates are made of melamine, which means they are dishwasher safe. They are not for use in your microwave, though. Lara Shelton is the force behind these gorgeous settings for your table. She has tons of colors to choose from and much more items to try other than plates. There are cups, placemats, trays, flatware caddies – just everything awaiting your monogram.

And since they are so durable, they are perfect for all those outdoor fetes you are planning this summer. You can tote them to your family reunion, picnic, outdoor concert, even take them on the boat!

There is no reason not to be stylish just because it’s summertime.  You have every chance to be stylish with La Plates!

xoxo, Patti
