It’s the most wonderful time of the year & it is safe to say that we are loving all of the holiday parties this season! When building your own charcuterie board, there are so many ways to customize it specially for your event! Especially with it being the Christmas season there are SO many great ways to make your board unique for your guests! Today, I am going to walk you through some Christmas customization ideas that you can use on your next board!
Oh, and don’t worry – I’ve already made an Amazon List for you all, so check that out HERE!

We love to see people’s reactions to our custom brie cutouts that we do for various holidays and special events! There are so many ways to be creative for whatever the event may be!
For Christmas, there are so many great design ideas to make your board stand out! Here are some of my favorites:
Christmas Trees are one of the staple images that comes to people’s minds when they think of Christmas! They are a super simple, cute, and easy thing that can make your board pop!
Gingerbread Man or House:
Some other great options include a Star, Stockings, or Snowmen!
Another way that we customize a board for Christmas is including Christmas toothpicks! This year, we swapped our regular bamboo toothpicks that we include on our grazing tables with Christmas themed picks displaying Christmas Trees or Gingerbread men! It is such a simple and cute way to make your board stand out!
SWAP OUT YOUR GARNISHES FOR CHRISTMAS SWEETS:
We also like to switch out our garnishes for special holiday touches! For example, our regular dark chocolate covered almonds can be exchanged for peppermint chocolate almonds and those are a fan favorite! Some other favorite options are Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Stars, Peppermint Meringues, Hershey’s Kisses, Mint Truffles, Lindt Chocolates
CHRISTMAS WOODEN BOARDS:
This year, Target carried Christmas Tree cutting boards – these boards would be the perfect thing to build your charcuterie board on! Using a cutting board with a fun shape is unique and adds character to your board!
