Harvest Party Ham Sandwich Board

This “pumpkin-themed” board serves about 12 guests. You may have already tried my Tri Tip Sandwich Charcuterie Board or Epic Sandwich Charcuterie Board (both good for large parties!)

All you need is a big board, the ingredients (of course), and a cookie cutter in the shape of a pumpkin!

Ham Sandwich Board

Make a smaller version

First of all, if this board is intimidating to you, start small.

You can always make a smaller version (cut the recipe in half), or get ideas from it.

And if you’re specifically looking for a Halloween idea, don’t forget The Baker Mama’s Spooky Snack Board.

How to create the board

Here’s what you need to make this board. Fresh sandwich ingredients, like bread, ham, and your favorite toppings! And little chocolate mousse pumpkins from Trader Joe’s!

Oh, fresh apple slices!

  1. Add your favorite mustards or aioli sauce.
  2. To make the cheese slices, using a pumpkin cookie cutter, cut out thin slices of your favorite cheese (Harvarti and cheddar work great!).
  3. Add lettuce, red onion, tomatoes … more of your favorite toppings!

Hosting tips

My blog is all about sharing recipes, ideas, easy hosting tips, and of course, a lot of love and inspiration.

Also, if you start feeling anxious about wanting more, or not feeling satisfied, that means a heart check should be coming your way.

I love this quote that keeps me centered.

“True happiness is to understand our duties toward God and man; to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence on the future; not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears, but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is abundantly sufficient.” –Seneca

EPIC Harvest Party Ham Sandwich Board

I’m thankful for today.

I’m thankful for great opportunities to bring people into our home.

Yes, there are seasons where that’s easier than others. That’s okay.

When the time is right, do it, and ENJOY!

26-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. Again, the Pier One boards are sold out, but I’m carrying my own line now!

My new boards are here!

  • Two sizes
  • With a lip
  • Food safe
  • Made in the US

Thanks for your support!
