So have you bought one? Which one was it, was it worth it? Quality okay?

I am thinking about getting the salad one and the cheese one for my 30th on Saturday.

We got a Safeway platter with pita wraps for my Nans 80th. It was fine, nothing to write home about but saved us time.

I have bought the Coles platters before - to be honest, they were nothing special - I am sure I could have done them myself for the same price, if not cheaper, but it is absolute convenience. What would take an hour or two to put together you can pick up completley put together and you don't have to lift a finger. The major bonus for me was that I kept all of the trays and lids so next time I have a party (in two weeks... must start getting organised!) I will be prepared early and do it myself... maybe...

Compare the price of buying the stuff yourself and the price of their platters.

I took a brochure this weekend. They look very nice!

If you have the money and lack of time I would def get one. If you do have some time, it's worthwhile to buy the stuff yourself and make it up, just copy what they've done and buy a nice plastic tray (you can get disposable ones from Coles) or a cheap plastic shop.

You can just add anythign you like - olives, cheese, dip, pate, saussage, gherkin.

Very yummy original.gif

I do have a couple of big platters here too that I could use to make my own. Just wanted to see what others thought of the bought ones first original.gif

The salad one would be easy I think!

Thanks for the input original.gif

I went to a party recently that had Subway wrap platters. They were pretty yum, and I believe quite reasonable. They also had sushi platters, but not from Subway obviously.

I have bought them before and would again (also check out the Woolies website, they have slight variations on the same theme!).

It is absolutely the convenience factor - it is like instant catering. Call the chook shop and order some cut up chooks, call Woolies get a slada and a cheese platter...ta-da!!!
