28 Mar Easter Charcuterie Board Ideas to Impress Your Guests
The charcuterie board trend is here to stay, and Easter is a great opportunity to take your basic board to the next level. I’m sharing a few simple swaps and styling tricks you can use to give it an Easter twist. From butterflies to roses to bunnies, these spring-themed ideas are a breeze to create. Scroll to the bottom for my full shopping list for this sweet & salty Easter snack board.
1. Think outside the box with your vessels
Since round containers are a good starting point to build your board around, find a few mini flower pots. I filled them with Easter M&M’s and pastel chocolate eggs, but you could put anything in these. For more visual appeal, arrange one of the flower pots on its side to look like it tipped over. Put a little bit of masking tape underneath so it will stay in place.
2. Swap out your standard crackers
Pepperidge Farm makes Golden Butter Crackers that are shaped like butterflies. They are so perfect for an Easter board, and you can find them in any grocery store. Switching out some of your standard crackers for an adorable shape gives it an automatic spring feel.
3. Try the salami rose trend
After this blew up on TikTok, I knew I had to try it. If you haven’t seen it, you use a champagne flute to get the rose shape. Start by folding a piece of salami in half over the rim of the glass. For the next piece, overlap it halfway and keep going around until the glass is nearly full. Then, flip the flute upside down onto your board, and you have a gorgeous salami rose. While they do look pretty, be warned that they were a bit tough to eat. As soon as my fiancé went in for a piece, the whole look kind of fell apart.
4. Gather your Peeps
Even if you don’t love the taste of Peeps, they make pretty cute decor! I added a few bunnies and chicks to give it more Easter flair. You can put them onto toothpicks to make little kebabs.
5. Supplement with your favorites
Add some of your family faves to the board. This could be your most loved cheeses, prosciutto, candy, cookies or veggies. While some people like to stick to all charcuterie or all desserts on one board, I prefer to mix them. It makes it more likely that every bite gets eaten, which is always my main goal.
