It's officially summertime, which means most of you are probably knuckle-deep in barbecue sauce and watermelon juice (unlike myself, who wades in spit-up and dirty diapers these days). It's prime time for outdoor parties - from polar pool plunges and backyard birthday bashes to luscious luaus. If you're planning on hosting a smashing summer shindig, I can point you in the right direction: head straight down Sweet Paper Lane.

As if their product offerings aren't swell enough, Sweet Paper Lane offers extraordinary customer service. Within one business day of order, a professional typesetter will lay out your invitation and email you a free proof with unlimited revisions. Only when you are 100% satisfied with your purchase will it be sent for processing.
For my review, I decided on the Little Artist Personalized Plate. This 10-inch melamine plate, by Kelly Hughes Designs, not only makes dinnertime extra special for your little one but is dishwasher safe for snappy clean-up for mom.
The plate arrived quickly and was wrapped in cellophane, complete with a cute blue bow - perfect for gift-giving. Nate could hardly wait for me to open it before he snatched it.
The size is generous and the plate is thick and sturdy. I love that it can be used to serve lunch or as a tray for our finger paint projects (only non-toxic and vegetable-based, of course). My little Picasso loves to color and paint so I knew he'd love the design. He constantly points to the crayons and identifies the colors. He is in the process of learning the alphabet and we've been practicing how to write his name, so this plate reinforces his spelling skills. Cute, functional and educational!
If I could change just one thing, I'd want to make the plate microwave-safe. But in the grand scheme of things, it's no big deal. I just use it more for fresh, ready-made foods rather than reheated ones.
Bottom line: Get your party started right with Sweet Paper Lane. Their awesome customer service and quality items will keep you coming back long after the party's over.
