Treat Tray Surface With Chalk
Prepare tray for writing by covering surfaces using a large chalk stick on its side (Image 1). This allows all future markings to be fully erasable. Rub chalk into surfaces then wipe away with a towel (Image 2). Complete your spooktacular tray with your favorite Halloween phrase or a message to your guests.
Great idea for Halloween or any Holiday; you only need chalk to make a magical transition to your special occasion. Serve your family and friends in personalize style.
