  • One of my all time favorite blogs is Style Me Pretty, they post the best event design photos, a ton of great recipes and useful DIY projects. I came across this post on “how to create the perfect cheese board” and found a lot of helpful tips! Read below: 

    HOW TO: Creating the Perfect Cheese Board

    From Jessica Sloane… One of our favorite things to serve at a small gathering, shower or party is a cheese board. And a well-executed cheese board doesn’t have to be intimidating to put together. Here are some tips on how to build your own cheese platter with just a few key elements.

    First, find a platter that will fit 3-5 types of cheese. This could be anything from a marble or slate platter to a wooden cutting board.

    Next, decide what types of cheese you want to offer. Try to select a variation of soft and hard cheeses.

    Then, choose your pairings: fruit (especially figs), olives, jams, honey, mustard and meats all make great sides. In this case, we went with a mix of Greek and Spanish olives, blueberry jam, pears, marcona almonds, honey, salami and prosciutto. Don’t forget to buy an assortment of crackers and/or bread. It’s always nice to select an option that is more seedy along with a few plain ones.

    To tie our cheese board together we went with a travel-inspired theme. We choose a gouda from Holland, truffle cheese from Italy, French blue cheese, Wisconsin cheddar and a Spanish drunken goat cheese.

    Next, place your cheeses on the board in order of softest to hardest. It’s always nice to label each cheese so your guests know what they’re after. We made ours by using card stock taped onto bamboo skewers.

    Place your savory and sweet sides on the board and grab some small knives and snack plates. Now pour a glass of your favorite red or white wine and you’re ready to serve!

    Tip: If you’re using a soft cheese like brie, set it out for an hour before you plan on serving it to make sure that it softens so that it will spread.
