Spoiler Alert to some of my friends with children – you may see a Christmas present in this post… Proceed with caution.
And, yes, I have done some Christmas shopping already, just in case you didn’t catch that. Go me!!
I first bought these plates as gifts for the three children of friends of ours in Connecticut. I went preppy with alligators and whales and they loved them. They have since added child #4 (and have managed to stay relatively sane…), so I had to update their collection! I also added plates for the parents so that they had a full family set, of course.
How cute are these?? While I was ordering online, I couldn’t just stop there… There are just so many cute choices. It really is a bit overwhelming, but I did my best to forge ahead.
I got these for the Misses for Christmas because they like to help me bake. 🙂
You can also personalize them with a name, not just a monogram. Love the cute hearts!
These alligators just about do me in.
All of these plates are Boatman Geller, ordered from finestationery.com. I love their site for ordering stationery online. I first found them when I ordered Miss E’s birth announcements. They were perfect and the company is so easy to work with. There are more patterns to chose from on the Boatman Geller website, but I had a hard enough time with the edited selection at fine stationery! They are all so cute!
These are a great gift suggestion, but order soon so you have them in time for the holidays! You’ll feel so accomplished to have bought presents in October. Trust me! 🙂
(Just an FYI – I don’t order the proofs when ordering. In the instructions, I tell them to match the font/size of one of the samples shown…)
