Snow Day Blues...

If you live anywhere near Kansas City, you aren't alone in preparing for the "crippling" snow to come. We've loaded up the house with food and bevies to last the week. (This does include a box of wine - word to the wise, it's not quality when you're snowed in!)

Looking for something to do while buried in potentially 3 feet of snow? Snap a pic of your La Plates in use. If it entertains our team while on winter lock down, you may be getting some free La Plates loot! What's better than free stuff sent to you, when you can't leave the house?

All photos should be emailed to info at laplates dot com by Friday, 2/4/11 @ 8 am CST. Let's get creative people. We want to see what's on your La Plates!

Prizes will be given for 1 out of 10 entries. One entry per person. Yes, that means the more people that enter, the more we give away! La Plates may use your photo for future promotion.


Big Love for Valentine's Day

Holiday lights are hardly put away & it's time to start thinking about our sweeties! Because we put the personal touch on everything that leaves our store, you must order by Sunday, January 30th in time for a Valentine's delivery. While we think anything with personalization says, "I love you", here are some ideas to get you thinking about what to get your cutie pies:

Our HOLIDAY: Retro Heart plate - get one for each sweet pea at your table!

Our Sunday Catchall is perfect for any woman - feel free to forward this post as a hint to your love bug!

These stickers are a FREE treat this month, when you order any of our La Plates Stationery . Plus we're offering FREE SHIPPING on all La Plates Stationery - talk about LOVE!


We've got paper people!

We've been working on our stationery collection for years. The only problem? Too many options! In an effort to get our products out there and get your feedback, we're offering a FAB deal! Buy any of our Flat Cards (qty. 25 or 50), Foldovers (qty. 25 or 50), Notepads or Stickers and we'll pick up the shipping.

Who knew?

As you can imagine, the holidays are a little nutty around here. We're just starting to catch our breath! While looking something up on our website, I realized our La Plates Reusable Bag has been peanut sized online! Unfortunately, we didn't catch this OR the fact that our adorable Pink & Green bag image was missing until now.

So, what does any good business owner do when they realize a mistake? Fix it! Never mind the fact that Kansas City had shut down for massive amounts of snow, the temperature was below zero AND the kids were out of school for 2 days...
You can now find this cute little number online - and who will ever know I was knee high in snow while taking the pic?! Don't you need one of these to start dreaming about Spring Break 2011?


Happy 2011!

We can't thank our customers enough for the amazing year we had in 2010. It has been so fun getting to know you through your shopping, home decor projects and event extravaganzas! We look forward to a big 2011 and hope you'll be a part of it.

This year, we plan to bring you more amazing designs, available on our custom melamine products. We also have new items to roll out...we're putting the finishing touches on them now!

If you have any shopping to do for upcoming birthdays, Valentine's or weddings, do it now! (There will be a few price increases once our 2011 Collection launches.) Don't forget, friend10 at checkout gets you 10% off plates, platters + placemats.
