Style a Valentine’s Grazing Board

Any occasion to style (and enjoy eating from) a grazing board is a good occasion!

I was excited to use my new board that my children gave me for Christmas. This is the biggest board I have and also has the most character. I love selecting a specific board for a special occasion.

These are some beautiful boards available from Williams Sonoma.

If you are looking for a large round board like mine, this one from Pottery Barn is a good choice. A board can be styled as a cheese board to include a selection of cheeses and accompaniments, or as a charcuterie board with a variety of meats and the accompaniments for them.

This is how my countertop looks before I start my board…crazy, right? I won’t end up using all of these things, but I like to make sure I have ample things to choose from when putting together my board.

I find that cookie cutters are a great help when I want to add some special shapes to my boards. For this board I used a heart shaped cookie cutter on slices of mozzarella cheese. Keep in mind, you can do this with any shape for any occasion.

If I am using bowls of anything, I like to put them in the middle of the board first and then build up my board around the bowls. For this one, I filled heart shaped bowls with pita chips and hummus.

Don’t be afraid to add additional dishes should you need or want to contain some of your items. I used dishes for nuts, olives, boursin cheese, cornichons and honey. Vegetables are a great enhancement to a board like this.

Add hearts where you can, like cutting a cherry tomato into two halves and putting them together.

Of course if you can add heart shaped crackers to keep the Valentine’s theme going. These are from Valley Lavosh. You can find these here from Walmart.

My tip for adding prosciutto to your board is to wrap small pieces of it around breadsticks. Try this for a easy way to serve it!

Use those cheese slice hearts all around your board.

My grazing board is all finished and ready to share! Notice the little Valentine’s M & M’s I sprinkled around the board. Whatever your plans, I hope your Valentine’s Day and each and every day has at least a little love in it!
