No-Fuss Charcuterie Platter & Fall Tablescape Tips


It’s time for a Fall Tablescape! The weather in the city is cold and drizzly this week so I’ve been craving all things cozy. It’s also been a while since I made a charcuterie board, and it felt so right! Plus, I added a few DIY details to the table. Grab a warm blanket and keep reading for all of my tips and tricks!

This post was also made in partnership with Better Homes & Gardens line sold exclusively at Walmart. Skip to the end for all the shopping details!

12 minute no-fuss Charcuterie Platter

Ready for the secret to creating a quick and easy cheeseboard? This one took only 12 minutes to put together (that included opening all the annoying packaging, ha!). The key to making this easy is to buy everything pre-cut and pre-cubed. Total time saver! Besides slicing the cheese in half, I didn’t need a knife to cut anything. Check out a video of the whole process here!

Because it wouldn’t be a blog post from me without a few simple DIY projects, here’s some extra steps to personalize your tablescape:

Cutting Fabric Napkins

Many people have made the switch to reusable, cloth napkins over the last few years. I picked up some patterned fabric and made a few napkins for this project. Cut the fabric to size and put a little fray stop on the edges. Make sure to handwash these.

Jute Wrapped Vase

This really is as simple as wrapping jute rope around a glass vase and knot. Add some in the center or the neck of the jar. Having trouble getting the jute to stay? Use a dot of hot glue before you start.

A little Garnish

I love adding special little touches to a tablescape. They don’t need to be too fussy; use what you have. I tied some of the jute rope around the extra rosemary from the cheese board and placed on this beautiful speckled dinnerware set.

Add your charcuterie platters to the table, and you are sure to wow your guests!
