Set out a large cutting board or platter.
Place all bowls or jars where you would like them. Fill bowls with honey, nuts, or jam.
Arrange meats on the board, then cheese, then crackers.
Fill in empty spots with fresh fruits, dried fruits, nuts, and chocolate covered raisins.
You don't always have to go all out with a fancy board, but I do like to splurge on them for the holidays. You could always ask a couple of family members to chip in.
Shop your pantry before making a grocery list. Chances are you'll find some items you can use. I always have crackers and dried fruits on hand.
Keep it simple and don't go crazy with the specialty meat, cheese and spreads. Use items you know you'll actually enjoy.
Consider colors when arranging the board. Use different colors and textures to create a visually appealing result.
Make Ahead -
You can prepare your meat and cheese board with just meats, cheeses and fruits up to a day in advance. Add the other items just before serving.
