Different Uses for Slate Serving Trays

The trend that isn’t going anywhere…

Slate tableware has been a growing trend in recent years, and we can’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. With that in mind, we thought it would be best to give you a helping hand so you can embrace the trend, if you haven’t already. Slate is a great serving plate option since it is non-porous and does not absorb smells or stains like a wooden counterpart would. Read on to find out some of our favourite ways to utilise Slate Tableware.

Whet your guests’ appetites with canapes at a dinner party

Slate tableware is perfect for serving up canapes or appetisers at your next dinner party. The serving tray is sure to get tongues wagging as you do the rounds and greet your friends and family. Use ramekins or sauce dishes to serve dips on the side without the fear of spills.

Host a Sushi evening!

Known for its bright colours’ sushi will stand out from the slate tray. We like to use a round platter for maki and uramaki, while a rectangle platter works well for nigiri.

A perfect Cheese board

Probably the most classic use for a slate serving trays. Cheese boards suit almost every occasion. Take yours up a notch or two, and integrate additional extras including chutney, grapes, olives, salami and more into the board itself. You will create a beautiful centrepiece that your guests are sure to love.

Use as a rustic charger plate

Bring some texture and rustic charm to your dining room table with slate serving trays. The neutral colour means that they will work with any glassware, cutlery, and crockery that you use. And, as a bonus, they are also bound to work with your room décor!

End your meal in style!
