Design on a Dime - NYC

Housing Works hosted the 7th Annual Design on a Dime opening reception on May 5, a three-day charitable interior design event, silent auction and public sale that raises funds for Housing Works’ lifesaving services for homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS.

This year’s event showcased the largest-ever roster of designers and celebrities who created 56 gorgeous room vignettes using new, donated merchandise, which was then sold for 50 to 70% off. All five of this year’s co-chairs, Iman, Nate Berkus, James Huniford, Charlotte Moss, and Lara Spencer, were in attendance.

Elizabeth Bauer Design of NYC and a retailer of La Plates, created a fabulous vignette, using our IKAT 10" plates and oval platters. We donated the melamine, but Elizabeth worked the decor magic! Checkout her space below...we only wish we could have attended!


Happy Birthday La Plates!

I can't believe our little plate biz is turning 3! It seems like just yesterday I was dreaming up the La Plates website, brainstorming with friends and diving into this entrepreneurial adventure. Since our launch, we've had quite a ride. None of our success would have been possible without the amazing support from family, friends and our fabulous clients. Not to mention, all the new friends we've met along the way. Editors, bloggers, writers and social media peeps have shared our products with their following - making La Plates bigger than we ever dreamed could happen!

In a small effort to say thanks to all of our loyal fans, we're taking the work week (5/2/11 - 5/6/11) to giveaway La Plates treats. Here's how it works:

You can enter three times a day:
* "Like" La Plates Facebook Page and leave a comment on Celebration Post = 1 entry
* Share La Plates Celebration on YOUR Facebook Page = 1 entry
* Post the Celebration link on your Twitter account, including the following text = 1 entry
(Happy 3rd Birthday @LaPlates! LOVE the #Giveaway! http://on.fb.me/ifmZFH)

What you'll win:
The winning gift certificate amount depends on YOUR participation!
For each entry, we'll add a dollar to the La Plates Gift Certificate.
50 entries = 50 Dollar La Plates Gift Certificate
This means the more peeps you tell to enter, the bigger the prize!
