Plates with Purpose

In passing, these frosted glass platters have caught my eye for their Danish modern look. I received one as a thoughtful housewarming gift this fall and I use it all the time-- for take-home sushi, hors d'oeuvres, dessert. What I never knew is that they are made right here; Riverside Design Group's office is on Butler St. in Lawrenceville. They are sold online, at a few boutiques around the city, all over the country, and globally.

The collection is as practical as it is pretty: made with recycled materials, they're dishwasher and microwave safe, and they come in a tasteful palate of colors and designs. The Plates with Purpose collection donates 15% back to charitable organizations in Pittsburgh and beyond.

I love this platter for the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh.

The botanical prints were inspired by the Healing Garden to benefit the Children's Hospital.

Food Bank of Pittsburgh platter.

I love the votives too-- how great would several of them look across a long dining table?
