Holiday Charcuterie Boards and Coffee Bar

Holiday Charcuterie Boards and Coffee Bar

When it comes to entertaining, charcuterie boards are a must. They’re gorgeous, easy to assemble and can be adapted to fit any and every occasion. Whether starting the morning with a merry breakfast platter or ending the night with a delicious dessert board and coffee bar combo, we have the inspiration you need to get the party started. So, grab your favorite serving platter and let’s begin.

Breakfast Charcuterie Board Ideas

Wake the family up to a memorable meal with a holiday-inspired breakfast or brunch board. Create a charcuter-tree by using heart-shaped waffles, fruit and bacon to design a tree shape. Turning the waffles point-side up, arrange 5 in a row near the bottom of the board. Add a layer of 4 waffles over the bottom layer, then a layer of 3, continuing until you reach 1 and the tree shape has come to life. Use the bacon to add the trunk, and a slice of star fruit as the topper.

Alternatively, you can skip the design and arrange the breakfast items on a board for all to enjoy. Start with the larger items first, like waffles and bagels, then fill in the gaps with the smaller items, such as fruit, sausage and bacon. Have fun getting creative with the items and designs because ultimately, it’s all about enjoying fresh, tasty food with family and friends.

Dessert Board Ideas

Indulging in sweets is one of the best parts about the season, so don’t be surprised if your dessert board becomes the focal point of the table. You can create a simple Christmas cookie tray filled with your favorite holiday cookies, such as gingerbread men and chocolate snowballs, or serve up an extravagant selection of various treats for all ages. When it comes to offering Christmas sweets, there’s no going wrong. Here are a few of the items we included in our decadent dessert board:

Gingerbread Men

Frosted Sugar Cookies

• Chocolate covered pretzels

• Candy canes

• Marshmallows

• Donuts

• Caramel candies

• Chocolate candies

Sweet and Salty Peppermint Bark

You can let guests get involved by asking everyone to bring their favorite dessert to the party, then arrange the sweets right before serving. Or skip the baking and create a candy charcuterie board with seasonal favorites and year-round classics. Choose a color theme – such as red, white and green – to ensure your candy board has a festive feel that matches the occasion.

Coffee Bar Ideas

Create a board that goes beyond the ordinary by incorporating a coffee or hot chocolate bar. Hot cocoa bombs, cinnamon sticks and crushed peppermint can turn a boring beverage into a festive and memorable occasion. You can include syrups, milk, and coffee and hot chocolate toppings with your dessert board or set up a separate coffee and hot cocoa bar to the side. Channel your inner barista and include these celebratory recipes in your drink selection:

Chili Spiced Mocha

White Peppermint Hot Chocolate Bomb

White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha

Gingerbread Coffee Latte
