Christmas Eve Keepsake Plate (featuring your home) 2023
Last Christmas I created a Christmas Eve plate for my two children, I wanted to make something for them to add to our tradition of placing the homemade mince pies, carrots and sherry on a plate for Father Christmas and his reindeer, on the most exciting night of the year. Something we could bring out year after year.
And thankfully it seems you guys love the idea as much as I do!
A portrait of your home (created from a photo you will upload at the time of placing your order) is hand-painted directly on to your plate, before it is glazed and placed inside a kiln. This ensures it is safe to eat from/ washable, although it is recommended that you hand wash and keep away from the microwave to preserve the artwork.
You can also tell me what you'd like the writing around the edge of the plate to read, the example on this plate reads "Father Christmas please stop here" with an arrow pointing to the house and decorative stars. There is a Christmas tree and a sign post with the road name written on to it too.
I will also write the year on the underneath of the plate for posterity. I love the idea of passing this keepsake on to my children when they are adults, so that they can continue the same sweet Christmas traditions with their own families one day.
The plate will arrive with you in a pretty gift box tied with ribbon, perfect for packing away safely each year, or gifting to someone special. This is then mailed out in protective sturdy packaging, all of which is plastic free and fully recyclable.
I would be overjoyed if it becomes something that you and your own family can look forward to bringing out each year.
I hope you can tell how much I love this idea! It's totally made with love, and as usual there will only be a limited number produced this year. I really hope you get one if you have your heart set on it.
