How to Create a Sweet Charcuterie Board
Creating a sugary buffet is easy and fun!
S’mores Board Ideas
Start with a base. Will you use actual boards? Will you use trays or other serving dishes? What accents will you add?
We wanted our display to pop so we started with a red table cloth with a red checkered table runner on top. Much of the food was laid out directly on this, although we used some clear plates and a tray too.
The frosting, pie filling, and sprinkles stayed in their original containers.
Clear cups, white plates, plastic ware, foil, roasting sticks, and pie irons were provided for dessert creation.
Decorations included red checkered napkins and little lanterns. Natural items such as rocks, pinecones, sticks, or leaves can be used as accents.
S’more Platter Ideas
We are not fancy people, but this was easy to make look by grouping like items.
I decided to start with chocolate since I was using a clear tray. After laying out the chocolate chips, I opened and displayed the candy bars.
From there, I fanned out the crunchy ingredients, starting with the fudge-striped cookies. Once these were all laid out, I added the various marshmallows.
All of these brown, white, and off-white ingredients really popped against the red!
Finally, we added the remaining ingredients on the opposite side of the table. This included the fruit, coconut flakes, sprinkles, frostings, and pie filling.
Do not forget the bread, pie crust, and waffle cones and bowls.
