Erasable Ceramics for Wedding or Quince Keepsakes
What a useful concept! Erasable ceramic Placecards or Menus for your special events. The Event Lady takes pleasure in sharing a great personalized reception item called PlaceTiles.
These ceramic tiles were the brainchild of Kristin Bowen in 1998,
when in the planning of her own wedding; she decided to add a finishing touch to her guest tables at her
bridal reception. Today the extensive line offers napking rings, buffet cards, wine tags, gift tags,
and so much more!
This placecard design is a useful, erasable small ceramic tablet where you can write your
guests' names, another form of usage is to describe each dish being served at your wedding brunch or buffet
line. They come in a variety of styles to fit any reception's theme, such as the
Medallion, Fleur-de-Lis, Vine, Shell and more. They certainly add a lovely detail to any elegant party.
Placetiles also offers a ceramic tablet design, which you can use to write down your Menu for a bridal shower,
wedding luncheon or reception formal dinner. In addition, these items actually serve a dual purpose,
and can be kept as a beautiful memento of the bridal couple's special day, and great for a princess quinceañera
celebration as well.
No more cheap paper placecards or plastic tags! PlaceTiles can
now give the VIP treatment to all your guests.
They retail for $35 for a set of
6, and can be purchased online at Placetile.com, or you may also contact them via telephone at: 678-467-4776

Your Wedding Cake Can Have Some Balls!
Edda's Cake Designs is known for creating unique edible art for any social event, especially bridal receptions and quinceañera
celebrations; today she remains one of the leaders of the Florida regional cake industry. She has been featured
in many local and national bridal magazines and now The Event Lady of Florida Weddings and Special Events
features one of her latest products, "cake balls." We've all had traditional wedding cake, cupcakes, cake cookies, groom's
cake, but wedding cake balls? Now that's a daring treat! These small delicacies come in vanilla, chocolate,
red velvet (my favorite) and guava flavor.
That's right my fellow readers,
your wedding cake definitely can have some balls!

As Edda's Cake Designs states these are, “Big
Taste in a Small Bite." They can be served in party trays at your quince party, gift boxed as wedding
favors or gifts, and ultimately, ingeniously used to create your pyramid style wedding
ball cake. Therefore I think, rightly stated...a cake with balls!
Edda's Cake Designs has been around for over 30 years, and is efficiently managed by a family,
who loves all about tasty baking. Their growth rate since 1978 has been amazing, from a business which began
in Edda's home kitchen, to presently operating four showrooms in South Miami, Coral Gables, the busy Doral area,
and Pembroke Pines. They proudly offer these convenient locations to serve their loyal Florida's tropical clientele,
reaching most of Dade County and now Broward County as well.
