Party Panache, Themed Charcuterie Boards

My daughter and I have had a lot of fun

with charcuterie boards lately

For her birthday party in October we served charcuterie

in a big “C” tray {her last name begins with C} and

I gave her this book, The Art of the Board

She loves the book and decided to have a charcuterie party

for her December supper club

She asked each couple to each bring a themed charcuterie board

and the winner would get a prize!

DD used a big square tray that she used for

CC’s birthday party Ice Cream Sundae Bar

and then added smaller dishes to fill with different foods

She went with a taco theme for her board and filled her tray with tacos,

cheese dip, crackers, guacamole and holiday tortilla chips

There was a smoked sausage board,

with sausage, pickles, a variety of cheeses, jelly, and fresh berries

How about this fun and creative board,

mini hot dogs on a dog bone board!

Another guest brought a Mexican dip board

Individual cups of a dip

made with salsa, tomatoes, sour cream, beans and cheese,

with scoops for dipping

A cute sombrero decorated the center

There was a Christmas tree dessert board

with white chocolate pretzels, mini cakes and chocolate balls

And now for the winning board!

{I’m sure it was hard to pick a winner

out of all these creative and beautiful boards!}

It featured grilled salmon, lemon slices,

hummus and pita triangles, salami, prosciutto,

crackers, olives, cucumbers, sliced radishes and a variety of cheeses


DD and I decided it would be fun to expand on the idea

of her C letter board

for our family Christmas Eve lunch

and we ordered J O Y trays here

Since our guests were14 adults and 11 children, ages 7-16,

I kept the charcuterie selections to simple foods

that all ages would enjoy

Pepperoni slices, crackers, cucumbers, salami wrapped cheese sticks,

cherry tomatoes, cheese slices

Easy, family friendly, festive

Endless possibilities!

    These boards all look great! I like the letters: They’re a lot of fun! We usually have a charcuterie every Friday Night. We call it Cheese Plate Friday Night, and we usually watch baseball (during baseball season) or a movie.

    What a great party idea! All the trays look fabulous and I’m sure it was very hard to choose. Love the “joy” trays and the Christmas tacos are so much fun. I popped over to Amazon to see the book and it looks fabulous too. Thanks for all your inspiration!

    • Yes, it’s a great book, I gave it to another friend and she loved it too, it’s full of inspiration. The thing I love about charcuterie boards is that they make a wow presentation even with simple food!
