Okay so cutlery boards are THE PERFECT way to bring a dinner party together.
They're functional, they offer variety, they look beautiful, and they're not even that hard to pull off! What is there not to love? Really?!
Cutlery boards can be altered to fit almost any event too! You can dress it up with fruit and bright colors for a wedding shower, or use more casual snacks and create a perfect tailgate party setup! The options are limitless!
The only thing you really have to worry about is figuring out which direction to go in, but that's fairly easy to do. Just use the theme of your dinner party and go from there. For example, if you're serving a Mediterranean Inspired Meal, then think of foods that would complement your main course, while blending in with the theme. I'd say tomatoes, mozzarella, calamari if you're up for it, and basil for accents. Once you get started, my strategy is usually to wander through the grocery store until I find something that jumps out at me. It's really fun, but it's easy to lose track of how much you're getting. It's good to have a full board, but when things are literally falling off your board because it's so full, then maybe it's time to restrain yourself...
Anyway, I chose some of my favorite cutlery boards from my Entertaining Board on Pinterest, so if you feel inspired from this post, check out my board for more ideas!
Here we go!
I love the variety in different types of foods, as well as the color contrast that it creates!
This one reminds me of Italy so much! It makes me want to travel again. Serve with wine!
The fruity fun vibe from this cutlery board brings a pop of color to the table!
I love the hummus swirl in this, as well as the fullness of the platter.
Is anyone else getting hungry now?
