A beautiful Spring Charcuterie Board with fresh ripe fruits, creamy cheeses, crisp vegetables, cured meats, crackers, French baguette slices, honeycomb, macarons, and edible flowers. This is a perfect Spring entertaining board.
I love making pretty things. What I love more than making pretty things is that I love making pretty and delicious things with an emphasis on the "delicious" part. One of my favorite things to do is to create and design charcuterie boards for each season.
I have been so inspired by the bright yellow, oranges, pinks, and greens that you see pop up in the Spring after a dark and moody winter. There are such bright and beautiful foods and I wanted to create a charcuterie board, perfect for Spring, Easter, and Summer to highlight those vibrant foods. This is a light and bright Easter charcuterie board.
One of the things I love most about these charcuterie boards is that you are literally elevating snack foods and making them look gourmet. It is so much fun creating beautiful boards.
A few years back I received a cookbook request from a publisher asking if I would be interested in creating a cookbook full of different charcuterie boards ideas for each season. As soon as I received that email, my mind was racing with all of the seasonal charcuterie boards I would create for a cookbook. I had to turn the offer down because life was just way too busy at that time. Someday I will write a full Modern Honey cookbook!

TIPS for MAKING THE PERFECT EASTER CHARCUTERIE BOARD:
- For optimal cheese flavor, bring to room temperature. The flavors are highlighted when cheese is a room temperature.
- Choose your favorite wood charcuterie board. I find all of my cheese boards at stores like Home Goods, TJ Maxx, and Marshall's. They have large ones (20") and are around $20 - $25, which is a steal! Here's a large marble and wood charcuterie board I love from Amazon.
- Serve with small cheese knives and spoons. This makes it easy for your guests to spread creamy cheeses on their crackers or bread. I love this gold cheese knife set from Amazon for less than $15.
- Allow for at least 3 ounces of cheese per person, depending on how hungry your guests are! Serve an assortment of shapes, sizes, and types of cheese to give variety.

This is lovely, I love making these also. So much you can do with them. I have made several dessert ones and a few like the one you have made here.
I also shop a lot at Home Goods. I have found several nice things at this store. Have you ever tried World Market? They have a board there and its 2 feet long and 22 inches wide. It's huge, really nice for a big gathering. I bought 2 of those. The price on them was $50 but they are so big. with a very large handle. Look it up on line, see if you like it. Thanks for this idea, I love to see how you decorate, you have excellent taste.
