It won’t be long before the holiday invitations start filling up your calendar (if they haven’t already). No one wants to show up to a party empty-handed, but in this busy season of life, who has time to find the perfect dip recipe or made-from-scratch appetizers?
Thank goodness for the charcuterie board! Today, charcuterie is perhaps the hottest and most convenient way to entertain, and I found this amazing marble serving board—part of Weston Table’s Tableware Collection—that will be perfect for my holiday get-togethers.
Marble is a great choice for freezer-to-table when you’re trying to keep foods cooler longer, especially in the Texas heat. And the neutral color transitions easily from fall to winter—from Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving to ringing in the new year!

With a little help from Weston Table, I’ve put together three holiday charcuterie board concepts you can pull together any night of the week using their French-made Marble Serving Board.
3 Easy Charcuterie Board Ideas for your Holiday Get-Togethers
Welcome Fall Charcuterie Board
Keep your meats and cheeses fresh by pulling your board out of the freezer and assembling ten minutes before your guests arrive. Begin with two types of meat and two kinds of cheese as a base. Layer crackers and/or bread, then add in fruits and dips. Have fun with fall fillers (nuts, fruit, chocolate, pumpkins) with a focus on the variety of fall hues.
Warm & Cozy Dessert Board
As the air turns cooler at night, snuggle under a throw and transition your cheeseboard into a s’mores board with marshmallows, chocolates, and graham crackers. Add fruits like strawberries and blueberries, plus a few pretzels for a salty crunch. Elevate your s’more game with a variety of dark and milk chocolates.
A New Year Board is the perfect way to ring in 2022 in style!
Start in the middle by assembling your meats and cheeses into the shape of “2022,” and then surround the numerals with small bowls of nuts, clusters of green and purple grapes, sliced apples, bread slices, and crackers. Remember, it’s all about layering and adding a variety of textures and colors. Mix it up by cutting cheeses into star shapes and adding sprigs of fresh herbs like evergreen and rosemary.
