If there is one thing I love for any home no matter how big or small it's to have a chalkboard wall. I think having a wall in your house dedicated to lists, sweet messages, creative ideas, or just plain silliness is such a fantastic and lovely idea. One of these will definitely be featuring in my home that's for sure.
You don't however have to limit the chalkboard creativity to just your walls as there are many ways to apply this concept. For example you could paint the bottom of wine glasses, and write guest's names on them every time you have a dinner party. It will help with keeping track of everyone's wine glasses.
You could also paint the base of a serving platter, that way people know exactly what is being served.
