But don't limit the use of this plate to special occasions. Anytime it is used automatically becomes a special occasion.  Use it to show that you love and appreciate your family and friends. It is a lovely and simple way to mark a special moment in someone's life.

"We raised three children to adulthood

and, to this day, they still want

to get to use the Special Plate

when they come for a visit."

~~ John Treble

Amazon Customer Reviews

"The plate arrives in a box with a small card inside that explains the history of the "special" red plate in American culture. I'm eager to start using the plate in our new family--I hope to begin a tradition that my children will carry on with their own families. Who doesn't like to feel special now and then? This is a great way to highlight someone and their achievements in a personal setting. I saw this plate elsewhere and turned to Amazon for the best price. Really a good value for something that will be cherished and appreciated for years. Makes me smile just to look at it. ~~ Deanna Weber Prine

"After a friend told me about this plate, I ordered one for our family. I was thrilled when it arrived and I saw that it was just as bright and beautiful as I'd hoped. My daughters, (5 and 6 years old) absolutely love using the plate on their special days and I can easily see this becoming a family heirloom." ~~ R. Skelly

"I received this as a wedding gift at a shower, and have loved implementing the tradition of the red plate in our home. I give this to friends and loved ones for birthdays and weddings, and everyone always says the same things: "I love it!" "What a great idea!" "That's a special tradition we can't wait to start!". It is really fun and unique, and everyone seems to have appreciated it as much as I have. I run it through the dishwasher and it always comes out fine. Love this plate! ~~ Mommy Bee

"It didn't come out often, but when it did, it was like an extra hug, an extra pat on the back, an extra I Love You." ~~ Lisa

"When I was growing up, we had a red plate called The Special Plate that said "You are special today" all around the edge. If one of us had a bad day, or a great day, or a birthday, or just one of those days where we needed a little pick-me-up, my mom would bring The Special Plate out of the china cabinet. It didn't come out often, but when it did, it was like an extra hug, an extra pat on the back, an extra I Love You.

A few Christmases ago, my mom gave each of us our own Special Plates. Every now and again, I pull it out and eat dinner on it, reliving those happy childhood memories and reminding myself that I Am Special Today."
