Create the perfect holiday cheese board

By: Fashionable Hostess

As seen in yesterday's post, I am OBSESSED with whipping up over-the-top cheese boards for parties... it's actually what many guests look most forward to when I throw a party! So today I wanted to break down what I am serving on my Holiday cheese board because seriously it is mouth-watering divine!! Looking to make something as over-flowing and delish for your next party? I shared my shopping list below... it may just spark a few new ideas to bring to your table!

On my Holiday Cheese Board:


  • Gorgonzola Piccante {looks like blu cheese}
  • Smith's Farmstead Gouda Naturally Smoked {yellowish top}
  • Borough Market Cheddar
  • Bonhomme de Normandie Double Cream French Brie {in the center}

Olives & Antipasta

  • Pitted Green Olives and Cerignola Green Olives {in small bowl}
  • Caper Berry {olive with stem}
  • Marinated Artichoke Hearts with Herbs
  • Marinated Red Pepper

Sliced Salami

  • Cornichons {mini pickles}

Fruits & Nuts

  • Green Pear
  • Red Grapes
  • Dates {which I placed on the brie}
