Seriously. Despite growing up with ballet (I do still perfectly point my toes, and have REALLY good Balanchine-esque hand positioning at times), I am constantly bumping into things, dropping things, all of that good stuff. Gravity has a particularly strong effect on me, apparently. This is particularly disconcerting at events, where you are balancing a handbag, a program, a glass of wine and a plate of food while navigating around people and talking.
It’s amazing I haven’t ruined more dresses with splattered sauces or wine.
When I got a pitch for Totally Bamboo Puzzle Party Platter, I was intrigued. To be honest, the puzzle thing is sort of kitschy, but the purpose is fantastic: it’s a platter (interlocking, so you could use these as a display for individual dishes as well) that has a hole for your wine glass. No more balancing act; you can just stand there non-chalantly as you hold your eco-friendly (bamboo is a renewable resource!) kind of cool platter. They come in sets of two, so you could grab a few sets for your summer picnic or a wine-and-cheese party, or for pizza rolls. I won’t judge. I prefer the straight ones to the curved ones, but you could get a set of both and do all sorts of things with them that I’m sure are totally creative (but I’m not quite that creative; sorry).
I will, however, give away a set of these babies! I’m using Rafflecopter for this giveway, so enter right here! enter here.
Full Disclosure: The lovely folks at Totally Bamboo gave me a set of these to try, but that didn’t affect my review. They’re also providing a set as a prize.
