I was given a red plate when my children were small. It was given to me by my sister-in-law who has five brothers and they always had a red plate growing up to mark special occasions. I have three children who are now in college and high school and we have used our red plate for many special times. Over the years I have given a red plate often to friends as a baby gift so that they can begin their own tradition. It is a most appreciated and timeless gift!
