I think themed snack boards are such a fun way to celebrate special occasions. They always seem to be the hit of the party. The most fun part, for me, is coming up with a variety of items and beautiful food that fit with the theme of my festive display.

Fourth of July Charcuterie Board

The festive fourth of July charcuterie board idea I am sharing with you today uses a combination of foods that are both sweet and salty. I really like that balance, but there are so many other ways to create your own board.

You could make an entire board with only fresh fruits. It could be a desserts-only board or a breakfast board. Let your imagination run wild!

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you don’t have a dedicated charcuterie board, a large cutting board is a great option. You could also use a wooden tray or even a regular cookie sheet.
  • When building a beautiful charcuterie board, place the larger items on your board first, then move on to the smaller items to fill in the gaps.
  • Arrange your patriotic charcuterie board using an American flag design, instead of concentric circles.
  • Wrap your board in plastic wrap before adding the food items. This is an easy way to save on cleanup.
  • Use white ramekins or other small bowls to hold smaller items on your board.
