Back-to-School Stickers!

For years, I've gotten excited about Back-to-School. As a kid, I loved going to Target to pick out all my supplies. As a teacher, I loved getting my room ready for my students. This year brings a whole new spin, as I get my son ready for his first day of kindergarten!

We've just added waterproof stickers to our La Plates line-up. Hopefully this will make it fun & easier to get your kiddo ready for school - we've stuck them on just about everything! We'll be doing our July GIVEAWAY on our Facebook Fan Page, leave a comment there for the chance to win a set of stickers. FREE SHIPPING on all La Plates stickers until Labor Day - celebrate the student in your life!

We offer our stickers in a variety of fonts...we just think the Elementary Print is great for the season!


Southern Living - July 2010

Southern Living shared La Plates with their readers last summer. Their editor even featured our MODERN plates with Harry Smith on CBS This Morning! This summer, they chose our 7.5" Salad/Dessert La Plates for their Ladies Luncheon article - such a compliment, and a great occasion to use La Plates!


Food Network Magazine - July/August 2010

Our friends over at Food Network Magazine were feeling the La Plates Fourth of July theme when they requested samples of our GINGHAM plates in NAVY. They highlighted reusable outdoor dining gear - we think it's a fabulous GREEN idea!


BBQ + fireworks

Over the last few years, our pre-Fourth BBQ has become a tradition. It's a simple recipe for success: good families + good friends + good food = a fabulous time!
Our RED, WHITE & BLUE La Plates collection has grown!

Got to keep the bevies cold at a BBQ!

Our fearless BBQ leader, Uncle Burgs - the best!

Each guest is asked to bring a side - fun to try different delish recipes!

The kids can't help but have fun!

Even the youngest guests!

We love a woman with the taste for a good monogram!

And we would never forget our four-legged friends on the 4th!


Cheers to the Fourth!

More photos are to come of our pre-Fourth BBQ celebration. However, we have had many requests for our "Mean Green" recipe...proceed with caution.

Dictated by my husband:
- 1 "handle" of vodka
- 30 pack of beer
- 2 limeade frozen concentrate
mix together in a spouted cooler, serve over ice, enjoy!
