Delectable design

Presentation can make or break a dish since, as they say, people eat with their eyes. Give your guests something to feast their eyes on at your next dinner party with these beautiful, handmade serving platters. Made completely from recycled glass, each plate is first hand-cut before the color and design is hand-screened onto the glass. Available with either a heart or a tree design, these platters are sure to be a hit at your next party! Made in Pennsylvania

Since 2005, Plates With Purpose has raised awareness for and donated over $150 thousand dollars to twelve non-profit organizations. Founded by Mary Irwin-Scott, President of the Riverside Design Group, it's a family-oriented company that takes community service very seriously. Irwin-Scott's daughter and Riverside Creative Director, Cassandra Ott, frequently collaborates with her mother and father, as well as Pittsburgh architect, Grant Scott, to design plates for various agencies and causes. Some Riverside beneficiaries have included the AIDS Task Force & Persad Center, Pittsburgh's Habitat for Humanity, and Court Appointed Special Advocates, a volunteer organization that helps abused and neglected children. Artist Judy Smilow also lent her design to benefit the Alzheimer's Association and honor her father after his long struggle with the disease. Each product in the Plates With Purpose line is simple, clean and inspiring, adding a delicate touch to any table and community awareness to the home.

        The plate is beautiful and comes packaged very nicely. I was impressed with the quality of the plate and the workmanship that went into creating it. I'm excited to give the plates in memory of family members.

            I am giving it as a Xmas gift and really like the fact that it was made locally (Pittsburgh), will benefit a favorite charity and it is made from recycled glass. I know my recipient will love it.
