Christmas Wreath

A few weeks ago we posted a beautiful, inspirational image of a charcuterie Christmas wreath to our social media pages. The image was created by The House of Hood Blog, and was a fine example of what can be done with some antipasto ingredients and a bit of creative know-how.

Well, I have to say, that post went nuts! Nearly 200 of you liked the post, it was shared innumerable times, and dozens of you tagged your family and friends. All wanted to recreate this delight (or something like it), to share with your loved ones this Christmas.

While beautiful, no one needs to work that hard on a platter. So we found another Christmas wreath that looks good, tastes good, and is just a tad more straight forward.

Enjoy! And if you decide to make it, don't forget to tag us on social!! 

Christmas Wreath Charcuterie Platter

Serves 10


  • Brie cheese
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Camembert cheese
  • Goats milk cheese
  • Salami
  • Pastrami
  • Prosciutto
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Olives
  • Dried apricots
  • Water crackers


Place your water crackers on your desired cheese board. You can do this spread out or in the shape of a wreath to make it more festive.

Add in your cheese, you can add them whole and add a cheese knife to the side or you can pre-slice them.

Add in your meat (salami and prosciutto) this can just be placed or shaped into flowers.

Add in your fresh and dried fruits and anything else you might want for texture or color.
