Fall Cheese Board
Another season, another cheese board for the occasion. I am in love with this cheese board display I assembled in our family room to kick off Fall. So today I wanted to change things up and share some tips for creating this display! Enjoy!!
Step 1: The Perfect Board
For Fall I am swapping my acrylic trays for anything wood – giving my board more of a rustic feel! I am obsessed with the company ETU Home and their gorgeous reclaimed wood boards – the one I used here is their Pine Rectangular Charcuterie Board.
Lately I am all about large / oversized boards so there is tons of space for cheeses and spreads and nut bowls. FH Tip: If you chose a large board and then feel like your board looks too empty once you are finished, accessorize around the outskirts of your board with mini pumpkins and lots of eucalyptus!!
Step 2: Choose 3 cheeses
This is a rule I follow year round, but felt I should reiterate! I always like to have three cheeses on my board. Ideally one classic option, one soft option, and one exotic or seasonal option. Today I chose:
- White Cheddar (classic)
- Brie (soft)
- Goat cheese with thyme (seasonal – love the green!!)
Step 3: Prep Work
If you want to serve any hard cheeses, (ie. here the cheddar), I recommend pre slicing or buying cubed cheese (or cutting yourself!!). Not only will it will make your board more guest-friendly, but I hate to watch guests struggle to cut big pieces and make a big mess!!
Step 4: Fall Feels
I am all about those “Fall accessories.” Here I had a lot of fun with eucalyptus, tucking sprigs along the outsides of the board – doesn’t it look so nice? Next I love little pumpkins this time of year whether sprinkled alongside (like I did around my coffee table) or on top of the actual board mixed in with the display.
Step 5: Serving Accessories
Lastly, don’t forget your cheese knives, small plates, and a small bowl for olive pits!
Hope you enjoyed these tip!! Cheers to Fall!!
Shop the look:
What I love most about today’s board is that it is matched back to a gorgeous assortment of mercury pumpkins. I can’t wait to share more of how we are decorating out home in my upcoming Fall Decor posts. See last year’s displays here.
