Growing up it was a family tradition that you got to eat off the red plate on special occasions and celebrations such as your birthday, in honor of making the school play, doing well on a report card or a big win. I’m not sure exactly where it all began, but I think my grandmother gave one to my mother and each of my 6 aunts one year as a gift and thus, a tradition was born.
I like the idea of personalized dinnerware and have a few ideas about how to incorporate it into wedding reception decor, but for now, I thought I’d share these modern, fun personalized plates from Aedriel Originals. I think they’d be great gifts for bridal showers, weddings, for your bridesmaids at your foodie-inspired wedding or rehearsal dinner or to yourself to sit at your sweetheart table! Instead of decorating your chair, why not just skip to the plate?
