My mom has had the plate in our family for over 25 years. Whenever there has been a important event in our families life we get to use the “RED PLATE”. I have gotten to use it for many Milestone Birthdays but I remember waking up after a slumber party for my 13th birthday, and all 8 of my friends coming down for breakfast and there sitting on the table was the RED PLATE. It allowed me to feel special and to share the story of the plate. Now everytime we get it out, we can read all the memories on the back and smile fondly. I plan to purchase a red plate for my best friends wedding and start the tradition again.
