say cheese!

slateTrays
they're showing bread, but i love the idea of having six of these slate trays lined up and loaded up with all different cheeses. i'd put a complementary wine at the head of each and voila! instant fun. these are available online at viva terra. i wonder if there's a local spot that has these on hand. i need them in time for friday!!

I've stumbled upon your blog a couple weeks back and love your taste and those adorable Bumbleknees you've created! I've seen the slate serving 'plates' in Crate & Barrel and love them! You can see them here: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/family.aspx?c=385&f=13629&q=slate&fromLocation=Search&DIMID=400001&SearchPage=1

Thanks for all the fun ideas!

They would make really cute cheese plates. Very clever. I even like the idea of chalking out each type of cheese on each plate. Great idea.

I love these slate trays, I think sevring food on anything "natural", slate, stone, wood just makes it look so much more tasty, it gives the impression that you've just gone out and picked it from the garden or baked it fresh!

I'm too late in seeing your post for local stores for the slate plates but you can buy these at Michaels. The only difference is that they have holes drilled for hanging but would be cute to weave a cute ribbon through it for your occassion. Maybe you could look for these for future usings.
