A family tradition since 1982.

My Mom has had her Special Plate since 1982. She notes all of the events we use the plate for in a book. It brings up so many memories to flip back through the book and talk about who signed it. Some have now passed away, also included are old boyfriends, marriages, anniversaries, graduations, Jesus' Birthday on Christmas where the plate is set in the middle of the table. My bday was the last entry 1/7. It has over 200 names. We had to make extra sheets! My son just got engaged. His fiancé loved my Mother's plate and what it represented and was so excited to receive her beautifully wrapped plate as a shower gift. Now she can document their special guests!
All of my children have one!

All 5 of my adult children were given one for a wedding gift. They LOVE this neat tradition. I purchased it for a niece who loves it as well. Red Plate Store shipped it the next day - WOW!!!

I have given many of these over the last 30 years, and all have been well received!!! I love mine also.
Usually the most "aw" gift given

Have been ordering The Red Plate for years for weddings and baby showers. It's usually the most "aw" gift given and most want to know where I got it. It's a wonderful gift for those starting out; to be the "special" person that gets the red plate and for it to be documented and earlier events remembered each time it is brought out. Love it!!!
Our red plate is covered with special memories

I received the "you are special today" red plate as a wedding gift almost 25 years ago. At this point, our plate is almost covered, front and back, with special memories. I give the "you are special today" red plate as a wedding gift to all of my friends.
