Fall Ideas for Entertaining
When to Serve a Fall Charcuterie Board
Other than in the fall? At every opportunity!
I love serving charcuterie boards at home gatherings, large and small. They’re an easy way to use what you’ve got and make it look lovely!
Some other times to serve a fall charcuterie board?
- Girls’ night in
- Movie night
- At a potluck as your contribution
- When you just don’t want to cook dinner!
There are two ways to consider choosing ingredients for your fall charcuterie board: seasonal flavors and aesthetic.
Seasonal fruits and veggies are a really lovely addition to a charcuterie board! They add a rich, opulent feel to the board, especially if they’re less common (like figs or persimmon).
You can also try a board entirely inspired by a single seasonal flavor. Maybe create an apple board with different apple varieties and plenty of dips to try.
Or a pumpkin board with pumpkin-infused breads, dips, and treats.
Alternatively, you can create your fall charcuterie board based around a color palette, kind of like you see here.
We went with deep purples, blacks, and pinks. Our board includes:
- Multicolor carrots
- Purple grapes
- Rosemary nuts
- A variety of cheeses
- A variety of crackers
How to Style a Charcuterie Board
I like to give charcuterie boards just a bit of breathing room so people have space to maneuver the snacks off of the board.
I find that when I serve a board that’s full to bursting, people don’t quite know how to get in there and serve themselves!
So keep in mind the fact that people need space to slice cheese, pick up nuts, or grab veggies.
I also like to add a couple of smaller dishes to both break up the board and protect certain ingredients.
Dry ingredients like crackers stay fresh when you keep them away from items that hold moisture, so I like to put them in a small dish. Conversely, items like olives do well in a small bowl so that their juice doesn’t run and mix with other items.
Start by placing the larger items like a wheel of cheese or a dish of crackers. Next, fill in with groups of ingredients like veggies or fruits that will take up a bit of space.
And finally, fill in with sprinkles of nuts or sweets. Add a couple of pretty touches like sliced figs or sprigs of rosemary.
You can also add a little flair by skewering a few ingredients together, like I did here with the proscuitto, apricot, and olive skewers.

Hope your fall charcuterie board finds you cozy and comfy, enjoying a beautiful autumn! xoxo
