How to Make a Fall Charcuterie Board
Select Your Board or Platter
First things first, your board! It’s not really a charcuterie board without some sort of large board or platter. You can stay on budget and use any large serving tray, it doesn’t have to be a board purchased just for a charcuterie board.
Large marble platters, wood boards (like this one), serving trays, etc. will all do the trick. Just make sure it’s big enough to hold all the meats, cheeses, etc.
Gather Your Fall Foods
Since fall is the theme of our charcuterie board, stick with the classic autumn colors like orange, red, yellow, gold, etc. This will give your board a cohesive look that’s seasonally perfect for all your fall gatherings!
Design your Charcuterie Board
I like to lay out my largest items on the board first. Usually, this starts with the cheeses like a brie wheel. Space them out around the board evenly. Fill in with the next largest items like chips, crackers, meats, dip bowls, etc. Next, add in small items like nuts, little cookies, etc. Tuck in serving spoons, cheese knives and spreaders, and ta-da!
Add some Festive Fall Touches
Give your board some fall garnishing with mini pumpkins, sprigs of wheat, cinnamon sticks, and fall flowers tucked in for the perfect autumn cheese board! Now you have yourself a festive fall charcuterie board!
