In our household, when someone has a special day or has accomplished something extra special they are rewarded with dinner arriving on the red plate. There is only one and the recipient usually does not know they are getting it until their dinner arrives at the table. The red plate does not come out every week. It is much more magical because you never know when it is going to appear but it is always welcomed with smiles and applause and makes dinner that night just a bit more special. In the case of the Frog Princess, she also gets her milk in a small wine glass we have reserved just for her on red plate nights.
What kind of fun family traditions do you have?
