My first introduction to the Red Plate was when I was teaching pre-school. One of the parents brought a Red Plate in so that her child could use it for her birthday treat. All of the parents and I went crazy for it. It has been a huge part of all of our family’s celebrations ever since and a must-buy for showers, weddings, and new babies. The celebration would not be complete without the Red Plate. It’s a self-esteem dream.
