Best for Summer Entertaining
Even the trashiest of trannies knows that the well-appointed home is key for happiness. But what about the throughly thought-out beach house? With Fire Island looming, our attention turns to poolside entertaining. Face it, FIP is about the beach, the teas, the houses, and the romance (no matter how brief or sandy). But it's also about putting your lifestyle on display. The quarter share crowd can be as uppity as any UES dowager so you can't expect your landlord's standard issue Ikea to pass muster at your afternoon cocktail party. This is why we love LAPlates. The online mom and pop shop rolled out their first collection of monogrammable, customizable, melamine plates 2006 and have grown their products to include super-cool coasters, cups and cutting boards ideal for slicing lemons on the lanai. Most importantly, LAPlates are a green solution to glass-free entertaining; no more wasteful and ugly disposables.
