Here are a few shortcuts for entertaining on the fly or just keeping it simple. With the holiday season ahead of us, I love using our outdoor space as much as possible for entertaining friends. What’s a gathering without an easy charcuterie board of delicious well placed together items and pretty drinks?!
Here is how to build an easy and simple Charcuterie Board without getting it too complicated or adding too many items. When you’re entertaining on the fly, you’ll want to have items on hand. Given the times, I actually love using proportioned snack cheese as they keep longer when you’re putting out the plate. Kids also love it.
Start by placing your bowls down on the board. I love using these small bowls for items and dips.
Savory Board Items
Sweet Board Items
Candied Nuts, pecans are always a great choice
Fruit, figs or grapes
Honey for dipping
Cocktails and Beverages
The Golden Hour Cocktail
Cranberry Juice, Pineapple Juice and Soda Mocktail
Pulling together an easy Charcuterie board and drinks for entertaining is all about having the right items on hand. Be sure to shop the post for some of my favorites from like these Cocktail Coupe Glasses and Marble Slate Boards.
Enjoy the season for entertaining!
