How To Make A Charcuterie Board

How To Make A Charcuterie Board

Hey Friends! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I’m so glad that you are here. I recently had some friends over for appetizers and I thought that a charcuterie board would be a great option.

A perfect appetizer for any get together.

I love making charcuterie trays for any get together. I put a wide variety of items on the tray, that there is always something for everyone. I went to my favorite Italian store and deli to get the items that I wanted. This store is amazing and has such a wonderful assortment of wonderful things to choose from.

My favorite Italion foods store.
The gorgeous cheese selection.

I love coming to this store, however my wallet usually takes a beating. I just get so excited that I just. can’t. stop,

These are the items that I got for the charcuterie tray.

I bought four kinds of meat, three kinds of cheese. I bought a fresh bagette and some bread sticks. I got several spreads-partly because the packaging was so pretty, partly because they sounded amazing-Apricot Harissa, Provence Herb Mustard and Mojo Picon. I bought cashews, marcona almonds, dried apricots and grapes. I also bought some chocolates. The packaging was so colorful and I LOVE CHOCOLATE! So, I figured buying chocolate was a tax write off and I was buying it so business purposes, right?

Watch the video to see how I made the charcuterie tray.

I set this up on my kitchen island so that my guests could mingle and easily get to the food and wine. I added flowers and candles for ambiance, as well as plates and napkins.

Doesn’t this look so festive?
I sure wish that you were here to grab a bite to eat and a glass of wine. We would have a wonderful time together.

I sure hope that you enjoyed this post. Please follow us on, on Instagram @peacockridge, on Pinterest and YouTube.

Hugs and blessings to you,

    Dear Renae, the store you refer to looks wonderful, and I can see why you would “extend your budget”. Would you mind sharing where it is located. And are the flowers real on your table? If they are artificial, wow are they lovely. If they are real, did you go to the flower market? Anyway, I am hoping that you have another open day soon. Have a wonderful and very blessed Easter. And with many prayers, things will start to lift more, Coeta Fluter

    1. Thank you so much, Coeta. It’s Privorde on Sandy Blvd, in Portland. These flowers are faux, but they are gorgeous. We have moved our store to Wade Creek Marketplace in Estacada. Blessings to you.

  2. I’m also making a charcuterie board for tomorrow. They have become a staple at our house. Some Friday nights our board is our dinner! So simple and so much fun.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
