A Peek at the Fun: Make your party extra festive this year as you celebrate America with this red, white and blue charcuterie board. It’s easy to put together and makes a fun addition to any patriotic gathering.
It’s the night before the 4th of July here and we are getting ready to celebrate America! It’s such a fun holiday and our boys love it (and so do we). We love hanging out with friends and grilling or swimming or watching a parade. It’s just such a casual, fun holiday and a great chance to celebrate our country.
We’ve had fun putting together twists on the original charcuterie board (which typically has meat and cheese) with fun ideas like a s’mores charcuterie board and a candy one for birthdays. So this year for Independence Day we thought it would be fun to throw together a red, white, and blue charcuterie board and it turned out great! Can’t wait to eat it up!
How’s that for festive?! And it was so easy to put together. We even had help from the kids, which they loved. Lots of fun!

How to Put Together a Charcuterie Board:
It’s simple to put this together, but here are a few tips.
Grab a cutting board or tray of some sort to build your board on.
It can be helpful to use a few bowls, just to break things up and contain some of the smaller items that you are using.
Then, layer things around it. For this one, you will want to be careful that you are spacing out your red from your white from your blue so that you get a good balance. Just pile things on until you’ve covered the whole board.
And that’s it! It really is easy, right?
Have FUN making and eating this red, white and blue charcuterie board!
