Here's a unique bridal shower gift idea that will
stay with the bride for years to come. It is the gift of The Red Plate, which is both a gift and the start of a family tradition. We have given the Red Plate so many times and it is always loved! It is a beautiful reminder to celebrate all the events
that make life special. Over a 100 years ago American immigrants brought a tradition from Europe
to the United States. The Red
Plate would be used to serve dinner to honor a special guest, a joyous
occasion or acknowledge a person's good fortune. It could be as simple
as a bountiful harvest, a birthday, milestone in life or a happy event.
The plate was handed down from generation to generation to allow
families to celebrate and appreciate the special times in their lives. See below for the story that accompanies the plate.
This beautiful tradition makes for a unique and thoughtful gift for a bridal shower. While not expensive, it is a priceless present that will be remembered and used for years. You can find this special gift right on Amazon and there is even a matching mug!
As we began to share the Red Plate for not only bridal showers, but as a wedding gift, christening gift and baby shower gift, we developed three "You are Special" gift cards to enclose with your gift that explains the tradition. There are cards for gifting at a baby shower, christening or bridal shower. Here is the poem to enclose for a bridal shower gift. Feel free to use them when you pass on the You are Special plate tradition.You will see when you gift the Red Plate how people just love it. It is not the most expensive gift, but may be one of the most thoughtful.
