wedding gift guide : raedunn's ceramics

My dear friend Tara, a brilliant source of ideas and inspiration, suggested that I add a new wing to the Paper Tastebuds library: a wedding gift guide. I love it! So, today kicks off the start of a new category. Choosing a meaningful, price-appropriate and original wedding gift is no easy task so my hope is to make this process a bit easier for anyone scouring the web for gems. Anyone who knows what my wedding attendance roster looked like in '08 also knows that I've given this some thought. And besides, gift guides are fun.

My first entry is about these custom cake plates by San Franciscan ceramicist, Raedunn.

For $62, she'll create a plate custom for the couple -- just the thing they can eat that frozen slice off of on their one-year anniversary.

Her shop carries other beautiful pieces, including this ring-bearing plate for $75.
