Fall Epic Charcuterie Board

A lot of these snacks we bought at Trader Joe’s, but what I love about a board is that you can use what you have. Make it your own! Fall is the perfect time to set out cozy snacks! You can also add a few bites like these BLT Endive Bites or Fig Grape Crostini Appetizer.

I tend to nestle into fall with my home, cooking, and hospitality. Which leads me to believe that I am more intentional in the autumn months.

I’ve been wanting to settle into a cozy atmostphere, especially after having just returned from Denmark (the coziest place in the world, or at least the ones who teach us most about how to experience coziness and “hygge.”)

Oh, and it helps to have a “cozy” puppy, you know, one who cuddles with you, and is fluffy like your favorite pair of socks or slippers? (Or, fluffy like this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip?)

As the leaves start to color, and we enjoy these brisk fall days, my heart fills with gratitude for this short, beautiful season. With only one day of rain and wind–the beauty is gone.

More casual hosting

Since we moved to our mountain home here in central Oregon 2 years ago, my entertaining looks different now. It’s more casual, a more “one big dish or charcuterie board” for all.

Which means nestling in, getting cozy, and gathering around the food.

I start with a large board. It’s very important to have a lip around the board, to hold in the crackers, etc. Otherwise you have a big mess.

For fall, we used a few small pumpkins, with a pumpkin cream cheese dip as the center star.

Charcuterie boards are all about cheeses and cured meats.

The additonal treats are … well, a big bonus.

We first noticed these vessels being used as water dispensers in restaurants, so we bought one for our newly converted sprinter van (more details coming soon), and for our “charcuterie” entertaining.

I love how stylish it is and goes perfectly with our mountain home decor.

I found the spigot easy to screw on with no leaks! And, this is for COLD beverages only. A few of my readers asked if it was hot cider in it. NO.

But we did serve COLD cider. So good!
