PARTY TIME
Totally Bamboo has taken some of the puzzlement out of juggling food and a drink with its Puzzle Party Platter.

Made of sustainable bamboo, the tray has an elongated carrying handle on one end and an open notch on the other to hold stemware. The tray’s surface measures 10.5"L by 6.5"W and provides room for sweet or savory finger foods.

Pieces weigh 6 ounces each and are interlocking, like a puzzle. They can be placed in this fashion on your indoor or outdoor table for an innovative food-serving centerpiece. The product is coated with a food-safe finish. For ordering information, visit totallybamboo.com.

From Coyuchi, these Diamond Crocheted Pillows with delicate crocheted overlays are made of organic cotton and filled with a soft, cottony fiber from the seeds of the sustainable kapok tree. Measuring 18.5" square, they come in Natural, Olive, Tangerine and Charcoal, and are available through EcoClean in Phoenix, (602) 224-5313.
