PARTY SAVERS: We’ve met your friends, and we totally understand why you’ve sworn to serve only bottled water and crackers at your parties from now on. (Oh, and we really are sorry about that incident with the strawberry margarita – have you tried Oxy Clean?) That said, however, perhaps sticking to stain-free snacks isn’t the only solution. These Acrylic Party Pal Plates, for example, make handling food and beverages at the same time so neat and easy, we bet we could do it standing on one foot, balanced on top of your coffee table. How ‘bout we give it a try this weekend? We’ll bring the barbeque meatballs. GET IT: Party Pal Plates, $17.99 for a set of 4, available online from Target.
