April is the time to stop chasing peak moments, to savor the little ones instead. I mean little ones, like watching the sunset, going on a short hike, hopping on the bike, or taking flowers to a friend in a jar for a visit.

Or, like making and serving this Epic Spring Charcuterie Board for a little party! [Watch the video, How to Make an Epic Charcuterie Board.]

How about writing letters or sending cards, and gathering your people together for a potluck meal?

Epic Spring Charcuterie Board

You may think … I can’t do that. It’s too much work. I don’t have the time or money. My house isn’t good enough. Gathering people is just too much …

Even for this board, ask your friends to each bring a spring food, and make a charcuterie board together! [Everyone asks where I bought this board? In the store at Pier One a couple years ago.]

Poo-poo those excuses, Friends. If you’re hosting a dinner, ask everyone to contribute to the meal so you don’t have to do it all!

Why I love an Epic Charcuterie Board

Here’s what I love about serving an epic board. And this goes for all my charcuterie boards here on RE.

  1. It immediately brings people together and creates a fun conversation.
  2. Finger foods are always welcoming and make mingling super easy.
  3. You can arrange the board ahead of time (or leave space for the last minute items), and move on to your next task.
  4. Think about a theme or holiday, which foods go together, and write out your list.
  5. Shop and create. It’s easy!

Also, for Easter, I love how the “deviled eggs” are the main appetizer for this Easter Charcuterie Board!

Size of the epic board

Everyone asks about  epic charcuterie board!

I bought this board at Pier One a couple years back, but you can use any board. You can view all my “epic charcuterie/cheese board” ideas, here.

My board is 28 inches wide and 2 inches thick. It’s super important to have a “lip” on a board that is going to be epic, so the food doesn’t fall off.

Or, use two boards. It’s also fun to set out three food arrangements.

I also seasoned my board by lightly sanding it down, and then rubbing it with beeswax and mineral oil. Like you would season any board. Easy!

Remembering our Mother

I like to remember the way my mother would host. Every holiday of course, but believe me, also many weekends in between the holidays.

Mom and girls

My mom … I love this photo of mom with her daughters, with our Easter-egg colored clothing in 1983.

No wonder, as I still search out the lines of mom’s beautiful smile, what I feel, all over again, is that sense of deeply rooted hospitality and love that kindled our mother/daughter relationships.

Except for now, mom has been gone for 21 years.

Easy Entertaining Epic Spring Charcuterie Board

Holidays come and go, but our memories are in our hearts forever. Now it’s our turn to pass on traditions to our kids …

Which brings me back to chasing the little moments, the here and now.

Creating a space where people can come together.

Every meal takes on a flavor of its own, though we do not serve this epic board for every hosting event in our home. We host all kinds of ways.

My charcuteries are here to inspire my readers to more hospitality, love, and bonding with your people!

Happy April, Friends!

Also fun for a spring board, Baker Mama’s Magic Mix, Greek Salad Skewers, and these 4th of July Blueberry Caprese Skewers.
