putting together a beautiful cheese board

cheese plate

Every so often a few of the other moms on our block get together for drinks and to catch up with one another kid free.


I keep seeing lovely cheese boards popping up across my social media, so I thought it would be the perfect chance to try one myself.


So after researching and studying so many pretty ones on pinterest, I gave it a shot.


Beautiful and delicious.  One of my favorite combos.


I got the majority of my ingredients at Trader Joe's and our local grocery store.  My sweet and savory mix went a little something like this...

Brie, goat cheese, blue cheese
Crackers, breadsticks, pretzel loaf
Marinated artichokes, spicy olive mix, kalamata olives
Grapes, cherries, apples, figs
Salamis 
Dried cantaloupe slices, dark chocolate blueberries


tray: Walmart
bowls: Anthropologie
spreaders: Bloomingdales
unbleached parchment: Amazon

I'm officially hooked on making these now...cheese boards forever!!
