Fall Charcuterie Board Ideas » Lovely Indeed

All your fall favorite things are here on this fall charcuterie board! Comfortable, rich and perfect for entertaining, try this on your next girls’ night out.

I dare you not to devour the goodies on your charcuterie board this fall! I had so much fun putting together these cute snack bars for a recent girls night out, and they were a hit!

Not only are they delicious, they’re beautiful too, thanks to the fact that we stuck to an autumn-inspired color palette.

It’s so easy to make but it looks incredibly put together and is full of delicious fall flavors. Here’s how you can recreate it!

Fall entertaining ideas

It may happen that an autumnal charcuterie board pairs well with an autumn Margarita or an Apple Cider Bourbon cocktail.

Decorate your space with some fall touches (we have two fun printable versions here and here!) for extra cozy vibes.

When to serve a fall plate of charcuterie

Other than fall? At every opportunity!

I love serving meat dishes at home gatherings, large and small. It’s an easy way to use what you have and make it look pretty!

Some other times to serve a charcuterie platter in the fall?

  • Girls night in
  • Movie night
  • In food as your contribution
  • When you don’t want to cook dinner!

Ingredients ideas

There are two ways to look at selecting ingredients for a fall charcuterie board: seasonal and aesthetic flavors.

Seasonal fruits and vegetables are a great addition to your meat plate! They add a rich, luxurious feel to a plate, especially if they’re less common (like figs or persimmons).

You can also try a palette inspired entirely by a single seasonal flavour. Maybe you could create an apple board with different types of apples and lots of dips to try.

Or a pumpkin bar with pumpkin-filled bread, dips and desserts.

Alternatively, you can create your own fall charcuterie board based on the color palette, just as you see here.

We went with dark purple, black, and pink. Our council includes:

  • Multicolored carrots
  • Purple grapes
  • blackberries
  • fig
  • Proscuitto
  • chops
  • Rosemary nuts
  • A variety of cheese
  • A variety of crackers
  • olive

How to design a charcuterie board

I like to give charcuterie boards a little breathing room so people have room to maneuver snacks off the board.

I find that when I serve a plate full to bursting, people don’t quite know how to get there and serve themselves!

So consider the fact that people need space to cut cheese or pick up nuts or vegetables.

I also like to add two smaller plates to divide the plate and protect certain ingredients.

Dry ingredients like crackers stay fresh when you keep them away from moisture-retaining items, so I like to put them in a small dish. Conversely, items such as olives can be placed well in a small bowl so that their juice does not run off and mix with other items.

Start by placing larger items like a cheese wheel or cookie plate. Next, fill it with combinations of ingredients like vegetables or fruits that will take up little space.

Finally, fill it with sprinkles of nuts or sweets. Add a few pretty touches like fig slices or rosemary sprigs.

You can also add a little flair by chopping some of the ingredients together, as I did here with the proscuitto, apricot, and olive skewers.

I hope you find your fall charcuterie board cozy and relaxing, and enjoy a beautiful fall! xoxo
