Red Plate Poem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have the red plate poem? It was given to my sister for her wedding with a red plate. The premise of the poem is that the red plate is to celebrate special days of their lives together. I can't find it anywhere! Any ideas of places that might have it? Lots of plates that say things like "Special Day" but no poem. Thanks!

Bumping this up.
I hope someone can help you find this poem. I love the whole idea of it. This is the first that I've heard of it. Good luck.

LOVE'S PHILOSOPHY
Percy Bysshe Shelley


The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another's being mingle - -
Why not I with thine?
See the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;
Why are all those kisses worth,
If thou kiss not me?

The "Magic of the Red Plate"

BY: Generalist
It was a time honored tradition among early American families that when someone deserved special praise or attention they were served dinner on the red plate. Today, this custom, so dear to early American families, returns to remind us that a simple reward can mean so much. The Red Plate is the perfect way to acknowledge a family member's special triumphs...celebrate a birthday...praise a job well done...reward a goal achieved...or simply say "You Are Special Today." When the Red Plate is used, any meal becomes a celebration honoring that special person, event or deed. It is a visible reminder of love and esteem. This is a way of showing someone dear to you that they are appreciated and remembered. The Red Plate is designed and crafted to become a family heirloom as it is cherished and passed from one generation to the next marking life's important milestones. The Red Plate...Make it a tradition in your family, symbolizing the good and happy times. It will speak volumes of love, when words just aren't enough.

I have done many internet searches and was unable to find the "red plate" poem I was looking for. Finally I found a friend that had received such a gift for her wedding shower and she gave me a copy of the story she got. It is not exactly a poem, but it is the same story used at a few showers I have been to. Hope this helps. I was more than frustrated when I could not find it on the internet anywhere!

Red Letter Days

This one setting of red dishes is intended for "Red Letter Days."
Surprise one another by setting it for your new spouse when you prepare a special dinner for him.
Let the birthday person use the red dishes to mark another year of good health and happiness.
Set the red dishes for a guest of honor who comes to visit your home.
Celebrate the completion of a big project or a promotion for your loved one.
One day you may set these dishes for a child who brings home a great report card.
However, and whenever you choose to use these red dishes, I pray God's blessing on you, your marriage, and your family

Here is the poem! love it

May today be one of many red letter days
Times you’ll remember in so many ways
This gift is a tradition for you to start
A gift of love, straight from the heart
On days that are special that you’ll want to
recall
Set out the red plate to celebrate it all
Honor the person and their great feat
On this special plate, let them joyously eat
It may be a birthday, promotion, good grade
A Little League win or wise choice that was made
May your years together as husband and wife
Bring you countless special days throughout your life
These wonderful times will come and go
Keep the red plate at the ready as your blessings flow
