Acrylic / Lucite Obsession

If you follow La Plates on Pinterest, you'll often see us pinning images to our Acrylic + Lucite Board. We sell all kinds of acrylic & lucite, but our obsession goes much deeper... On a recent trip to visit some of my besties in the Bahamas, I couldn't help but snap a few photos of these fab pieces. The entire house was amazing (Marianna Lane Interiors), but I only went snap crazy on these crystal clear gems:

An obsession continues...

Last Fall after a little surgery, I had to stay in bed for a week. It was suppose to be a bit longer, but seriously people - there were monograms to create! Anywho, what does one do with this bed rest prescription, but sign up for Netflix & become addicted to multiple shows & binge watch every episode?!

Today is the day that one of my favs comes back - Orange is the New Black. In honor of the return, we rounded up our favorite orangies from La Plates:
Starting top left & going clockwise:

Cutting Board (small) - Mosaic with Script mono
Guest Napkins - Plush with Circle mono
Penelope Wallet in Mango
Platter - Vines with Roman mono
Vineyard Round Necklace (large) - Script mono
Melamine Bowl - Ziggy with Zippy text
Celly Case - Mosaic with Script
VIP Wallet in Mango

Let us know if we can help get you decked out in ORANGE for Summer - it's the new black!

Holy Minecraft!

So the planning has begun - we have a house full of obsessed Minecrafters! I whipped up this plate, thinking I'd surprise the birthday boy with cake on it, the day of his party. He saw it 3 weeks early and went BONKERS. Now I'm using it to my advantage...veggies look better as creepers!

Inspiration from the garden

Inspiration can pop up anywhere. While traveling, I find my mind is open to seeing pattern, color & design all around me. On our recent trip to Naples, Florida, I couldn't stop snapping photos at Driftwood Garden Center. If you're in the area, stop by - you're sure to be inspired!

Even Prince George loves it personalized!

We've been big fans of the Royal fam for ages. From Diana & Charles' wedding to Kate & Will's, we've followed along, moment by moment via tv. Once the newest royal arrived, we designed La Plates fit for a prince

We LOVED the most recent pic of the family showing their love for personalized pieces...if only we could get George his La Plates...

Rested & Revived!

Sometimes you need to step away from it all to feel completely energized - that what Spring Break 2014 did for me! It's been a long winter for all. Taking time to travel to the warm beaches of good old Florida was all it took. Naples, Marco Island, Captiva & Sanibel Islands are the places we called home for a few fun-filled, family days. Can't wait to plan for 2015!
