Cocktail Party Plate: Love It Or Hate It?

This set of four cocktail party plates are really quite clever. They're divided so that dips and bites don't mingle until you want them to and they have a notch that will allow you to balance a wine glass. There are actually quite a few trays like this out there right now, but I love the modern look of these. What do you think of them?

Great idea, it doesn't look that bad. I actually saw something like that at Target the other day.

I agree w/ Kimbit. Not to hot to look at but its a great idea. especially since I'm famous for dropping food. Oops.

I love it. I'm thinking it'd be perfect for any schmooze-fest so you don't have to worry about balancing a plate and a glass in one hand while shaking with the other.

I didn't hate it until I saw the wine glass holder. Cheesy!

Now if they'll just make one that holds regular ol' plastic cups, I'll buy a gross.

That's too reminiscent of the translucent pink compartmentalized plastic plates I had as a kid for me to handle. Oh dear.

its always hard to decide if i want to snack on something or drink something, since it is usually so hard to do both - this would solve that problem though!

Um no thanks, are we becoming that lazy that we have to have one thing carry everything? Sheesh.

Love the notch! I was at a party this last weekend and practically spilled wine down my front, so this would be awesome to get.

These are a little plain but I've seen some that are quite elegant for tapas

I love the concept. I think the design needs more work so it doesn't look so tacky. I hate having to hold my glass and eat appetizers at the same time. There isn't always a place to set my glass.

Reminds me too much of those sectioned styrofoam plates. Or kiddy plates. I'd go with something more traditional. There's a trick to balancing a plate and a glass of wine in your left hand that works at cocktail parties and networking events (since your right hand should be kept free for shaking hands).

I hate the wine holder part. It just seems so cheesy!

uhm those are actually really great? i attend lots of events and parties for work and i would LOVE it if people used these plates for the buffet instead of making us awkwardly stand around with plate in one hand, glass in the other, and no table to set anything down!

I agree with everyone in that I think these things are ugly. But I am a huge klutz (spilling red wine on white carpet -- that's me), so it makes it a lot easier for me to juggle food and wine at the same time. These things are absolutely indispensable for parties!

yeah-- the wooden ones are great.

we had wooden ones on our wedding registry & love them! You can put them down - it just involves two hands.
