Start by choosing your theme. You might choose to use bowls shaped as hearts for Valentines, or want to cut a cheese in the shape of a Christmas tree or a football. You may want to make this the center of the board and work out.
Place items that should be served in bowls on the tray. Items may include jams, olives, cheese dips, and olives. Place these in separate parts of the board.
Place the meat either in piles or rows in groups around the board.
Place the cheese in places where there are larger gaps to fill in spots.
Next, add the bread and crackers in nice rows or stacks.
Fill in “holes” with fruit, nuts, chocolates and pickles.
It is ok if things are spilling off the board, it just makes it look all the more inviting.
Look over the board and see if there are any spots that need to be filled in.
Serve with some nice wine or your favorite beverage.
Set your bowls on first, and spread them out so they aren’t too close together. Also, have some nice serving ware for the dips and little tongs or forks for the meats and olives.
Spread the meats and the cheese out. Make little piles or rows of meats in different spots on the board. Do this with the cheeses as well.
Add some color to the board. Fruit is a wonderful way to do this. Red raspberries, green grapes, and oranges along with some mint or basil leaves are great colors to add.
Use small items to fill in gaps. Nuts, chocolates, pickles are great for filling in spots.
You can use any size board you'd like, larger or smaller depending on how many you are serving!
