(First off, with all of the review-type blogs popping up, I feel the need to clarify that I do NOT write about products here unless I absolutely adore them and use them myself.)
With that being said, let me count the reasons why I love this line of darling, monogrammed melamine plates.
First off, LOOK AT THEM.
So cute. SO CUTE I WANT TO SQUEEE ALL DAY LONG.
However, the cuteness is not the only reason I feel the need to squeee. Let me elaborate.
1. The plates are made from melamine, which is unbreakable, dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. (Hallejuah!)
2. They are perfect for kids and outdoor parties. (No need to waste paper plates!)
3. The design options are limitless.
4. They make a perfect gift for a new family addition. (Heads up. If you are a personal friend and just had a baby, this is probably what you will be receiving. Surprise!)
5. The owner of La Plates, Lara, donates a percentage of revenue to differing charities. This month, she is donating 10% of her web sales to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
6. Just look at sweet Wito’s personal plate.
(Of course, you knew it would be green. And simple. I’m like an open book over here.)
I could go on and on, but you can learn everything you need to know at the La Plates website.
Probably because she is a Kansas girl (which makes her a lovely person from the get-go), Lara has agreed to give one La Plate to a commenter, who can choose whatever design and monogram their little heart desires.
Additionally, Lara is offering a 10% discount to all whoorl readers by using the code “laplates10” at checkout.
From now until this Sunday, September 28th at 9pm PST, leave a comment and consider yourself entered. Good luck, and thanks to Lara for the giveaway!

I love these plates! Melamine, but without the annoying licensed characters… what an idea!

I love them! Now, which initials to use…

If everything in my house could be monogrammed, it would.
These are so darling (and, HOW DARE YOU show them to me).

Hot diggity, I would LOVE to win a plate so that I can monogram it with the initials of my unborn son. And since we’re not revealing the name until he’s born, I could totally torment my mother with it as some sort of cryptic clue. MWAHAHAHA. So cool!

Oh my, Charlie and the new baby definitely each need their own personalized plates. No siblings fighting over plates with something personalized like this. So cute!

Oh my God. I am BOWLED OVER by the cuteness of the plates. Since I’m apparently entering every contest you’re running this week, consider this my entry. :)

Wow! I am practically drooling over these plates at my desk. I think my Christmas shopping just got a LOT easier. Yay!
