I was very excited to be interviewed on Nashville CBS Talk Of The Town about Unique Items for Family Patio Parties. This is the time of year we all get to enjoy outdoor gatherings and here are some fun, useful items that you may enjoy having for your next backyard entertaining event! I am posting about each unique patio party item that I mention in the CBS interview in case you want more details on the products and where you can purchase them. Also, if you are here for the first time, I hope you will like Family Focus Blog on Facebook to keep up with our great family articles and giveaways.
Nashville CBS Interview on Unique Items for A Family Party On The Patio
Drink-N-Plate is a durable reusable, dishwasher-safe combo plate and drink holder that is perfect for all outdoor settings. Held with one hand, the Drink N’ Plate is a combination of plate and drink holder. It allows the entire meal to be carried conveniently and easily. This is an especially nifty invention for families who are often trying to serve more than one person and the Drink N’ Plate is also easier for children to hold on. $24 per pack of 8.
2). Little Griddle
Little Griddle is a line of heavy duty grill-top griddles that shatter all the conventional limits on cooking outside on your grill, allowing virtually anything to be cooked on any grill. There is a Little Griddle to fit any shape or size grill, round or rectangular. They are large enough to cook meals like a breakfast of eggs, hash browns, bacon and pancakes, a lunch of philly cheesesteaks or a dinner of the day’s catch, stir fry, burgers with sautéed onions, and so forth. Griddle your salmon filets with your favorite seasonings; there is no need to wrap them in foil. You can even bake pizza on your grill. It cleans up easily right on the grill, no need to wash in kitchen sink. The Sizzle Q Griddle is $69.99
PlaceTiles are stylish erasable ceramic accent labels. They are perfect as table place cards for guests or as a descriptive accessory for each dish being served. Great for outdoor use to avoid dish or seating labels from blowing over or away in the breeze. No more cheap paper or plastic tags. PlaceTiles are a nice, personalized finishing touch for a dinner party, reception or any gathering, giving the VIP treatment to guests and highlighting each dish. Retails for $35 – $43 for a set of 6
4). ThermaCELL Patio Lantern
The ThermaCELL Patio Lantern is the best option for keeping mosquitoes and other insects away. The Patio Lantern is both a powerful insect repellent device and a stylish outdoor lantern. Both functions an be used separately or together. Providing a 15×15 ft mosquito-free zone, it is 98% effective (tested and used by the Department of Defense and the United States Army). This makes it the most effective insect repellent device on the market. It is also non-toxic, safe and non-intrusive, being DEET-free, silent, portable and odor free. Retails for $29.99
5). Rolf Glass
Rolf Glass is the only line of affordable cut and etched/engraved glass made in North America. Combining state of the art robotics with the traditional craft of glass cutting and engraving, Rolf Glass is able to produce pieces of even higher quality and workmanship than the custom work of glass artisans at the same price as low-quality overseas manufacturers. Set of 4 DOF for $39.99.

We’d like the Little Griddle the best. We’re vegans, but our extended family is not so it would be nice to bring this with us when we visit. That way we could grill our veggies and stuff on the grill too without getting the flavors and “juices” of the meats on them!!
They all look like great products, but I think we’d get the most use out of the Drink-N-Plates or the Little Griddle.

I think the ThermaCELL Patio Lantern would be my favorite since my son & I get bitten alive every Summer
jules mcnubbin says
i need that thermacell lantern!! i live in a really marshy area in southeastern NC.. the mosquitoes are HORRIBLE!
The lantern, because I live in FL and the mosquitoes are huge and still manage to get onto my screened in porch
Deborah M says
Why do I have to pick just one! I guess the Drink-N-Plate would have to be my favorite because it is so innovative – but all of these items would get plenty of use at my house.
Lydia Jones says
I love the Drink N’ Plate! I’m from a large family (10+) and it would have made pool-side parties soo much easier!
Doug D. says
The patio lantern for sure. I live in the country, and I really like the outdoors, but, so do the mosquitoes.
Susan Marina Brown Lane says
