Appetizers...

0620 025

Bought these two appetizer/snack plates for a quarter at a recent garage sale. I have seen these types of plates before and purchased them to give as a hostess gift. The concept is brilliant, the design somewhat in need of perfection. The idea is to provide you with a way to hold your appetizers and drink with one hand and eat with the other. The plate works fine as long as you don’t tilt it so that the glass falls out (which could easily happen after a few glasses of wine). I overlooked the glass holder design flaw as I thought I could risk the 25 cents. I liked the etching of the wine bottle, glasses and apps on the plates.

I thought the plates would be fun to use with guests out on the front porch.

I would be the one to tilt my glass. I'm just clumsy!!

Have a great holiday weekend, Renee! :-)

For a quarter you can't go wrong! We use plates like this at Wine Club. They are a bit more perfected, though, with a more plate like design, so food can't spill off the sides. I think yours are prettier, though!

What a great idea! Perhaps you can perfect the design ;)
Thanks for joining TST!

Great idea and worth the quarter to try it out.

Have fun enjoying a glass of wine and a snack on the porch.

Awesome! But, when I drink wine, I like to sit and visit and drink and visit! Oh, and drink.
