Cancer Sucks

Anyway you look at it, cancer's not fair, but you've got to fight it! We just made this plate for one of our favorite people on Earth...she gets the humor and is fighting like a champ! Damn cancer doesn't stand a chance.


La Plates for a Beach Bride

We love a good beach wedding! We recently created exclusive plates for a beach bride - we love using a couple's logo or custom monogram.
We can do custom logos on almost everything we create - this gives bridal parties a one-of-a-kind feel and gives guest a gift to take away from the event.
From plates and platters to cups and koozies, La Plates can design something just for you! Let us know if you have a wedding event coming up - we'd love to help you out!


Patriotic Tabletop

This summer is the perfect time to pull a fabulous red, white and blue tabletop together. You can use it for the 4th and then for an Olympic celebration in late July. We’ve layered some of our favorite pieces for an al fresco affair!
1. Start your tabletop with a great patterned fabric - we love Quadrille Java Java in Navy.
2. Bring some texture or metallic to the tabletop with rattan or silver chargers.
3. Next up dinner plate - we chose La Plates MOSAIC in red.
4. Salad plates - La Plates SAYA in navy.
5. Pull in some fun accessories, like decorative trays or our Silverware Caddy.
6. Finally add glasses and napkins for the finishing touch!
Change up the look with Monogrammed Tervis Tumblers
Or a casual Monogrammed Styro Cup

Put a patriotic twist white on a favorite dessert with white chocolate dipped strawberries and blue sprinkles.
Looking for the perfect cocktail to serve at your 4th festivities? We found this one on Cool Junkie:

1 ¼ oz. Smirnoff Raspberry Twist
¼ oz. Blue Curaco
½ oz. Sweet and Sour
Simple syrup
1 Cherry
Shake ingredients with ice. Garnish with a cherry.
