My Fiddle Leaf Fig plant secret

Recently a few of my followers asked on Instagram how we got our fiddle leaf fig to grow so big?

All you have to do is set out two fiddle leaf fig plants side by side, and it becomes one large plant!

Easy!

Also, here are a few options if you want to buy your own! Honestly, Friends, go to your local nursery (or Home Depot) for a live plant. [I couldn’t find any on Amazon with good reviews, so I’m not sharing “live” here.]

  • Artificial Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree/Faux Ficus Lyrata for Home Decor, 30 inches Tall – buy it >> HERE.
  • Ceramic Sevilla Outdoor Planter Pots and Stands Small & Large – buy it >> HERE.
  • Mid Century Plant Stand, Acacia Wood, Adjustable Planter 9″- 12″ Inch (Excluding Plant and Basket) – buy it >> HERE.

Back to the party … anytime you set out the chips and dip … they will come (wink wink).

Happy Tortilla Chip Day, Friends!

28-inch Charcuterie Board

Friends, here are the boards that I LOVE. A “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off. [This post has affiliate links. Every purchase from these links supports RE at no extra cost to you. Thank you!]

LARGE Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray, Large – 28.5 inches round.

LARGE Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray (gray) – 24 inches round.

MEDIUM Hand-Carved Vine Round Tray (white washed)

SMALL Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray (gray) – 18 inches.

Rememember it says it is “not food safe,” so you need to prepare the board by either laying down parchment paper under the food, or you can “season” it like we did.

How to season a Charcuterie Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

Follow along how to season a charcuterie board for the details, but we used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

Everyday Enamelware Serving Tray

Today I’m using an Everyday Enamelware Serving Tray by LeCreuset!

It has a porcelain enamel durable coating, easy to clean, it’s shatterproof, and resistant to stains, scratches and rust. YAY!

It’s also lightweight and versatile, and I LOVE IT.

Did I mention, it’s food safe?

Use it for a tray to carry food or glasses to your deck, or as a food board!

You can buy the Everyday Enamelware Serving Tray by LeCreuset, HERE.

I also found this on Amazon, a LARGE charcuterie board, but it doesn’t have a lip. This Pine Extra Large Charcuterie Board is 22 inches round.
