Friends, just in time for Mother’s Day, this lovely Sunday Brunch Board! Make it springy and fresh, and we added little jello cups (for the kids, and because of the spring colors), but you can replace those with yogurt cups!

The idea is to fill a board with great brunch foods, and gather your favorite people around it. Oh, and looking for a Virgin Mimosa? This is good, too.

There are so many ways to give, with a generosity of heart.

We miss so many opportunities when we stress about the stuff around us. Hospitality is a heart attitude, and we just need to focus, adjust, and make things happen. For me, simplicity is key.

It’s fun to throw a party with all the bells and whistles, but when it comes down to it, what really counts is making an enjoyable time for my friends.

Breakfast or Brunch Cheese Board

On a somewhat boring, day, how about doing something different and bringing a few friends together to enjoy this Mother’s Day Brunch Cheese Board!

The value of feeding people is that you get to see them relax, open up, just sit and be with you, and you don’t owe them anything but a good time. A lot of love and fellowship!

Friends, be the people who will be kind and generous, who will care for each other, and take care of those the good Lord puts in our path.

I think the world needs more cheese boards, don’t you?

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!]

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.
