Friends, we’ve had a couple small dinner parties this week, and I love serving a simple appetizer. Isn’t this Christmas Wreath Charcuterie just gorgeous? So easy to make! Or, if you want to make a small “plate” check out this Fig Grape Pancetta Jam Plate.

I love this time of year (and this quote). 

“Freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin—inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night.” –John J. Geddes

How to make a Christmas wreath charcuterie

The time is now to grab your Big Board, to get it in time for the holidays!

To assemble the board, I recommend laying out the large sprigs of rosemary in a circle as an outline, then fill in with the other ingredients.

Next, place the cheeses, grapes, persimmons, and apples around the circle. Begin filling in the smaller space with folded salami, and almonds.

Finally, fill in the smallest spaces with short sprigs of rosemary. You can gently move the wreath to center and even out the sides on the board.

Remember with my boards, you do not need to lay down parchment paper! The boards are food safe and ready to go! :)

We have our house decorated, probably the simplest it’s been in 30 years of marriage. A Charlie Brown Christmas tree from the Fall River, and only a couple of boxes did we bring out to decorate.

For us, our home this time of year is filled with beautiful lights, Christmas music, good smells, just a kind of space you can delight in. Simple, and good.

Bringing people together 

For us, bringing people together is a gift. Not everyone has the desire to do this, so we do not take it for granted.

A gift that money cannot buy, hospitality is right up there for me!
