Archful Arrangements

Serve appetizers with a side of style with these glossy arches, inspired by the handy catering trick of using watermelon rinds for serving quick bites. Toothpick holes take the guesswork out of creating artful arrangements, while a clean ceramic plate spears the goods without the inevitable sogginess of end-of-party rinds. Four piece set: Three arches, one dish for discarded toothpicks. Large arch features 20 toothpick holes, medium contains 16 holes and small features 10 holes. Includes 50 wooden toothpicks. Designed by Elan McPherson. Handmade in Washington State.

Some passions manifest themselves early on. Such was the case for Elan McPherson, who from childhood could be found experimenting with both pottery and entrepreneurship. “I painted rocks and made rock men and would then sell them on the most rural road you can imagine,” she recalls.

Though her career initially led her to work on restaurant interiors and then a line of furniture, it wasn’t long before Elan veered back into ceramics, hand-glazing and embellishing a line of North American-made kitchen accessories. As colorful as they are clever, her designs (noodle bowls with built-in chopstick pockets, plates equipped with handy thumb handles) frequently prompt the reaction she most likes to hear: “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Comments about Rainbow Hors D'oeuvres Set:

Except the limited capacity, it is a very stylish and well made appetizer set. Great for parties and special occasions.

Service and delivery comments:

The 3-piece porcelain set arrived without being broken. However, we were a bit disappointed that it didn't include the 50 wooden toothpicks as described in the details so we had to make a trip to the store to buy them.

    Comments about Rainbow Hors D'oeuvres Set:

    I just received my set and inspected it before I wrap it up as a gift. The set itself is sturdy, sleek, and will be a wonderful addition to my Mother's regular hors d'oeuvres displays. I am also very pleased with the packaging- the box is colorful, clearly identifies what is inside, and holds the set very nicely; I will not need to do any additional explaining as to what the set is used for. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The boxed set was packaged VERY well in a larger brown box and a hearty dose of bubble wrap. Delivery was prompt and I appreciated all of the emails from uncommongoods letting me know the status of my order.

        Nice idea, but when you open the box, you can't really tell what it is. The packaging design seems it's like for a child's gift.

            One toothpick hole not bored through so would NOT take a toothpick! Thank goodness it was on the end of the rainbow so hopefully wasn't noticed by guests. Considered sending back, but handicapped and hard to repackage, go to Post Office etc. but very disappointed. Suggest inspecting before shipping. Added so much color to the table. A conversation piece with guests. Had tried to purchase from another source but was out of stock and $20 higher. Your catalogue CAME THAT DAY! Saved me! Shipping didn't come as promised. (2 to 3 days which I paid extra for). Came in one week,so it missed useage at one of my earlier parties for Chinese New Year. Very disappointing.
