If you are anything like me and hoping to give more in the New Year…than this plate is a perfect place to start.  My life revolves around food and so when I think about how I can give to others, it is always the way I go.  Food is comforting and makes people happy, so why not?  I love the idea that the plate just keeps going and going, continually sending love from home to home.

I have to admit, the idea is not mine.  I saw it on Pinterest but I thought it was too awesome not to share.  It is easy to make the plate.  I purchased the plastic charger from Michael’s {but any plate will do}.  I then wrote the words on with a permanent Sharpie marker.  From there, all you have to do is fill it up with treats {homemade or store bought} and pass it on to family and friends to enjoy.  Then it repeats and moves on to someone else.  Wouldn’t it be awesome if at this time next year this plate was still bringing happiness?  Or even better…if I got it back and could refill and gift again!!

The treats can be anything…cookies, cake, brownies, candy, bread, muffins…anything.  AND your in luck because I just happen to have a few great ideas for you {just visit the recipe index on the top of the page}.  I chose the Soft Confetti Sprinkle Cookies because they are SO GOOD!  I wish you all the very best in 2018 and hope The Giving Plate travels through your home sometime soon!

  1. I think a name and date on the back would be fun, just to see where the plate started and ends up hopefully years down the road.
