Huge thanks to Pearls® for sponsoring this post!
With the Easter weekend right around the corner, and lots of entertaining ahead of us I thought I would put together a fun little charcuterie board and show easy it is to put one together yourself. Of course before a big Easter dinner (hopefully surrounding by family and friends) there will be lots of Easter Egg hunts, crafts, activities, pictures, talking, board games and during all of that it’s fun to have snacks around the home so your guests don’t get hangry so this is a fun addition to your regular appetizers and snacks.
So, to start you’ll want to grab your ‘cracker’ board. I found this amazing ones from Uncommon Goods last year, but there are some amazing ones on amazon, and if you are putting something together last minute you can always just set it up on a cutting board, or a large plate or platter.
Next you’ll want to grab a few knives or cheese graters. An assortment of cheeses will require a few different knives and it will be handy for your guests to cut, spread and enjoy all the goodies you are about to set up. The few that I have came from a good friend and her company when I worked with her several years ago. Really, any utensils used for slicing will work fine! You just want to eliminate any extra work for your guests.
Next up you want to grab an assortment of crackers, cheese, fruits, nuts and olives (Like Pearls®) for your guests to enjoy. I love grabbing a collection of different colors and flavors so that every taste palate is covered so that everyone can enjoy and be happy. If I’m feeling extra fun, I’ll add strawberries and grapes!
One of the easiest ways to spice up your charcuterie board is with Pearls® Speciality Olives that come in a variety of flavors and can be purchased straight from Amazon? (Anyone else obsessed with not having to leave your home to shop?)
Then set it all up on your board and keep stock nearby because I promise this will need refilling often!
What else would you add to your charcuterie board?
