Send-Off Summer Right with Our Giveaway with Snowe!

When we think of August, we can’t help but picture summer get-togethers with friends and family while the sun is shining and the weather is balmy. And, what better—and easier—way to play host than with the help of a brand new set of kitchenware—and some Plated recipes to enjoy, of course.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Snowe to gift you a summer send-off prize pack, and help you celebrate the warm-weather season in style (while you still can). This jam-packed prize includes a $100+ Plated gift card, a Plated Cookbook, and a Snowe prize pack made up of a Chef’s Towel, Cheeseboard Set, Hostess Set, Stemless Wine Glass Set, Essential Glasses Set, and an Ice Bucket. Basically, everything you need to host a late summer soiree if you so desire.

To enter: follow @plated and @snowehome on Instagram, like this post and tag 2 friends in the comments below! Feel free to enter as often as you’d like and spread the word to your friends. The winner will be announced on August 9th.
