What I love about serving a charcuterie board or cheese board (or snack board) is that people love them!

There is no “right or wrong” way to make them. Use your creativity and what’s in your fridge, and add a little holiday spin. Like I did in this St. Patrick’s Day Snack Board!

Epic Charcuterie Board

An epic charcuterie board or dinner board is one of the easiest large-group ways of hosting that involves prep ahead of time, with a delicious presentation, but very little work once the guests arrive. You can check out all my charcuterie/cheese board ideas here.

Here’s more info on my epic board, HERE.

Buying trays and boards

This simple tray for today’s recipe is from IKEA! It has a slight lip. I rarely use a board or tray that does not have a lip. Nothing worse than the food falling off the side.

I serve quite a few charcuterie boards when hosting [check out my charcuterie/cheese board], so I’m always looking for a great deal on a good board. At the same time, I have a small collection and I tend to use the same ones over and over. My house is small, so I have little space for storage. I say small, because if I bring something new home, I try to swap it out and get rid or one I may not use anymore.

We live in a small home, so storage is tight!

Pass the Spoon Game

We recently hosted a multi-generational small gathering. It was super fun for our kids! [Oh, Alder the Whoodle …. above! So close … ]

But one memory takes me back to a dinner in our home quite a few years ago, when we resorted to “passing the spoon.”

It was a super fun dinner party with mixed company, and let’s just say the conversation became very loud. Not quite remembering the topic, everyone had a hard time getting their last word in. Then someone jumped up and said, let’s pass a spoon!

  1. Pass a large spoon around the table, the person holding the spoon has the floor to “speak” without being interrupted.
  2. For the quieter person, this is great, because they have their chance to be heard.
  3. It’s a great way to be sensitive to all personalities around the table!

Conversation Tip:

For a large, vivacious group around the table, play PASS THE SPOON game, and only talk about one topic! FUN!
