7 Charcuterie Board Displays to Impress Your Guests (And Yourself!)

Charcuterie boards are all the rage and this season it’s the perfect home gift for anyone on your list. Originally used for meats and cheeses, the charcuterie board has gained more traction as we explore its new and different applications. Easily adjust ingredients for preferences, adapt to themes, and the best part is that these boards require zero culinary skill to assemble.

Here are 7 unique charcuterie board ideas to use for any occasion:

Spa Night In

Remember to take time for yourself this season!
The Designed for Joy charcuterie board doubles as a luxe bath tray. Simply style with your favorite candles and home spa products from Blue Water Spa. Add in fresh eucalyptus for a true at-home spa experience. Get ready to unwind! Here we used home spa products by Mistral (a staff favorite!). Restore and revitalize tired muscles with our indulgent bath salts while you enjoy the aroma of therapeutic lavender. You will emerge from your fragrant soak relaxed and rejuvenated.

Traditional Charcuterie

Gatherings just got a little bit easier! This charcuterie board cheese spread is as filling to the stomach as it is appealing to the eyes. Guests can enjoy different meats, cheeses, produce, breads and accompaniments as they graze. Here we used: Italian meats – sopressata, salami, prosciutto; cheese – goat, brie, manchego, mozzarella; high quality Greek olives, and support your local bakery by including baguettes and flatbread crackers. Elevate your spread by adding in unique elements, such as golden berries, pomegranates, marcona almonds and even a whole honeycomb – which pairs beautifully with cheese. This board easily becomes a conversation piece!

Hot Chocolate Board

During the chilly months ahead, assemble a quick hot chocolate board, sure to be a family favorite! Complete with rich additions like dark chocolate chips, mint chocolate, and peppermint marshmallows. The concept is simple – If you think it would taste good in a cup of hot cocoa, add it to your board! If you’re looking to make your board holiday-inspired, add candy canes and seasonal cookies. You’ll also want to include other fun necessities, such as whipped cream and chocolate-covered pretzels. Yum!

High Tea

This is the perfect board for catching up with family and old friends, even with short notice! Afternoon tea is an English tradition, and one that we love. It includes three courses of sweets, scones, and savories. Experience a charming and relaxing occasion while you enjoy tea, treats, and great company. Simply assemble this board with shortbreads, scones, cucumber sandwiches, and of course, tea – hot or cold.

If you want to make someone feel special, breakfast in bed is a great way to do it. Dress up the board with your favorite breakfast items – from frittatas to omelets or quiches, the options are limitless. As a bonus, add fresh flowers for your special person.

The Dessert Board

Fill your Designed for Joy charcuterie board with sweet treats. An effortless crowd pleaser, this dessert board is a go-to for hosts. Assemble your board with enticing chocolates, cookies, fruits and chocolate dipped pretzels. For an elegant touch, support your local chocolatier and indulge in luxurious truffles and handmade chocolates.
