Make the board to match the menu of the party or be super creative and make something that’s entirely different. Either way, a charcuterie board is the answer.

Charcuterie Board Basics

Did you know that charcuterie is a French word? It means a shop that sells processed pork products like salami and ham. No wonder most charcuterie boards include salami and pepperoni.

Since their creation, there have been an unending amount of creative ways to put together a snack board. In fact, you might have heard them called other things, too.

Some people call them snack boards. Others call them grazing boards or even part of a grazing table.

No matter what you call them, these graduation party charcuterie boards will feed everyone at the party while looking good enough to be the centerpiece of the snack table.

Most charcuterie boards include a few basic things:

  • Meat
  • Cheese
  • Crackers
  • Dip
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables

The food is arranged on a pretty serving tray or cutting board. Some people use cookie cutters to cut the meat or cheese into shapes. Others use decorative ramakins for the dips.

This is a fantastic way to express your culinary creativity! Go as fabulous or as simple as you like.

Just a fair warning…once you make one, you’ll be hooked and want to make more!

How To Make Charcuterie Boards Ahead Of Time

No matter which kind of charcuterie board you make, you can make it up to three days before the party.

The best way to make a charcuterie ahead of time is to prepare each part separately and store them inside individual airtight containers. Then, arrange them on the cutting board right before the guests arrive.

If you’re making the snack board on a small cutting board, then you can arrange everything and then wrap the board in plastic wrap. It’s important to keep the air off of the ingredients so they stay fresh.

When you make a charcuterie board, I suggest using a few tools. You will need a cutting board or serving tray, some small bowls for dips, and toothpicks.
