How to make the prettiest charcuterie board for Christmas grazing – top tricks

Present a beautiful grazing charcuterie board the next time you have people over – here’s how.

Edible flowers

One great addition to a charcuterie board is to add edible flowers to goat’s cheese, as shared by TikTok RosieLondoner.

“To make a blooming beautiful cheeseboard, press some edible flowers into your goat’s cheese,” she shared on the video.

“Fruit and cheese are a match made in heaven,” the TikToker said while cutting up a spicy pear.

“A little bit of honey goes a long way,” she assured while adding a petite jar of the sweet stuff onto the board.

Salami roses

Another great accompaniment on a delectable charcuterie board is salami roses, which you can make by using a wine glass.

Tiktoker KaniPark recommended placing the salami over the rim of the wine glass so that it creates a layer that covers it completely.

Make sure the salami pieces overlap one another, then keep on adding more and more, until you can’t add any more.

KaniPark instructed: “Keep adding salami so that it overlaps the first layer of meat covering the ‘seams’ with a fresh piece of salami.”

Then simply flip the wine glass onto where you would like to see the salami rose on your charcuterie board. You can make as little or as many as you would like.


When it comes to cutting up hard cheeses, you can decorate the board by alternating the ways in which the cheese sits.

There are multiple ways to present hard cheese, whether they be layered on top of each other, or cut into squares, or circles.

One of the key ways to make a pretty charcuterie board is to add variety with shapes and colours.

Great pieces to add to a charcuterie board include:

  • Grapes
  • Oranges
  • Strawberries
  • Pear
  • Olives
  • Crackers
  • Gherkins
  • Salami
  • Ham
  • Honey
  • Hard cheeses
  • Soft cheeses.

The best thing about a charcuterie board is that you are the creative director of your own masterpiece.

Each charcuterie board you make can be slightly different each time, depending on which foods you already have in the house.

But, by adding in edible flowers to goat’s cheese, salami roses, and different cutting techniques, you can ensure your charcuterie boards are the prettiest around.
