If you host often cocktail parties, your guests will thank you if you get plates designed to simultaneously hold food and cradle a wine glass. Something called mingle plates (or mingling plates), they are certainly the best invention for cocktail parties.
I presented you several models in the past. It seems reasonable to see if there were more options on the market.
My New Finds
The Wine Glass Plate Clip is probably more versatile because it works with our own china. These wine glass holders are made of brushed stainless steel with rubber inner surfaces to grip plates without scratching.
The clear plastic 8-inch square Wine Buffet Plate comes with a built-in stemmed glass holder. They are dishwasher safe when put on the top rack. They also sell for less the Wine ‘n Dine that I found in the past at Wrapables.
I found three wood tray models. The two rectangular models are quite similar except that one is made of cherry and the other of maple.
My Past Favorites
I presented it before but I still like the Wine ‘n Dine set. The assorted color touches let your guests quickly identify their plates and their wine glasses. This clear acrylic set is dishwasher safe.
The d’glas Mingle Plate works with wine glasses and non-stem glassware. It is more versatile this way. It is really done for tapas.
