DIY Charcuterie Board for Hosting

It seems like there are Charcuterie businesses popping up everywhere lately. I, too, fell for the charcuterie trend and became obsessed with all of the unique concepts and designs. There are so many ways to style them! As someone who frequently entertains, I felt this was a skill I needed under my belt. As a snacker myself and I prefer nibbles that are best paired with wine! I stuck with meats, an assortment of cheeses, crackers, and the nut mix was even chocolate and peanut butter.



What is a Charcuterie Board?

In the French Tradition, a charcuterie board is an assortment of meats, cheeses, artisan breads, olives, fruits, and nuts, all artfully arranged on a serving board. Or, if you're my husband, a Charcuterie Board is a fancy name for a meat and cheese tray. Thanks, hun.


Display Your Board

This was my first board design so I started with a basic display. With my devotion to cheese and nibbles, it definitely will not be my last design. I was originally intimidated to even attempt the salami roses but this was a 2-second process that was surprisingly so simple! Simply draping salami over a wine glass or champagne glass and turning over, viola, a rose!
