Making a Holiday Themed Charcuterie Board
If you’re hosting a holiday party this year, and want a very cute statement dessert display, then you’ll love this holiday themed charcuterie board!
This Christmas Tree shaped charcuterie board takes less than five minutes to make. All you basically do is open op wrappers and sprinkle everything throughout the Christmas tree cheese board.
Christmas tree charcuterie board Placement
Don’t overly obsess over placement. The beauty of this board is that you don’t need to overcomplicate things. Sprinkling the colors of white and red throughout make the color palette easy to use. Add in a few areas of cookies, some hazelnut chocolate sticks and Hershey kisses for chocolate accents.
Using the chocolate accents like the popcorn on the Christmas tree charcuterie board help make the red and white pop out even more!

No Christmas candy charcuterie board is complete without peppermints. You could buy candy cane’s if you want, but I used candy cane mint balls instead because I find the taste more pleasing and easy for guests to eat!
Buying a christmas charcuterie board
This charcuterie board christmas party display is set on a white Christmas cheese board originally from Frontgate, but I’ve seen them recently at Pottery Barn. Mine is around 30″ tall, but you can buy whatever size works for your home and table.
Easy charcuterie board christmas party display
My favorite part of this christmas charcuterie board is how easy it is. You could even give this to your kids to help with (allow some extra for them to sneak some marshmallows!) or you can have a guest who arrives early set it up.
Presenting Your Christmas tree charcuterie board
An easy way to accent your Christmas tree charcuterie board is to add natural greenery around it. I actually prefer faux cedar greenery picks (I use them everywhere – like in this faux holiday greenery display!) The size of these picks makes it easy to tuck them under.
Another one of my Christmas charcuterie board ideas is to accent it with hot chocolate mugs. You could have steamed milk, or hot water ready to pour, and give your guests their own mug with individual hot chocolate to make themselves!
