Chalkboards are a hot trend right now, and when used the right way, can be pretty classy!

Slate coasters allow guests to mark their own drinks at the party, and the slates are easily wiped clean for use as the next shindig.

The hostess will love jazzing up a simple snacks with a gorgeous slate tray.

Use chalk to mark cheese flavors, to label toppings for a DIY S’mores station, and so much more.

The possibilities are endless!
