Mini Cheese Board Styling by ConfettiStyle

Welcome to part 2 of the Reindeer & Recipes holiday blog hop. You’re in for another round of fabulous holiday recipes, entertaining ideas and holiday cheer from a great group of bloggers.

If you’re coming over form Positively Southern, welcome and thanks for stopping by.

Ok, let me set the scene…You’re hosting an intimate sit down dinner party and want to serve up something unique and fun.  Don’t fret because I’ve got an easy entertaining idea that you can create for each of your guests–Mini Cheese Boards!  


I’ve seen some beautifully styled cheese boards on Pinterest so I decide to do a little styling of my own but in a mini version.

♦  Mini Cheese Boards for Holiday Entertaining ♦

♦  Start with small wood cheese boards like these that I found at HomeGoods. They are the perfect size for an individual serving and are easy to hold in your hand so your guests can snack and mingle at the same time.

♦  Include a mix of sweet and savory cheeses and finger foods. I used gouda, honey goat cheese sharp cheddar & salami plus nuts, grapes and crackers.

♦ Arranged items randomly around the cheese board and put the nuts in a small dip bowl to contain the them.  The bowl also adds another visual detail to the cheese board.

♦  Garnish the cheese board with Rosemary sprigs to add texture, color and an amazing fragrance.

♦  If you want more color on the board I recommend you add a few strawberries or olives.

Not only are mini cheese boards perfect for a holiday cocktail party but they also make a great impromptu dinner when you don’t feel like cooking. #justsaying
