A Quick & Easy Valentine’s Day Charcuterie Board How To
Charcuterie boards are all the rage right now, so I decided to try my hand at putting one together.

Valentine's Day has never been one of my favorite holidays. I know, the girl that loves pink, hearts, and glitter is not a Valentine's Day fan? It is a little surprising. When I was in 7th grade, my dad told my sister and I on February 14, that he was divorcing our mom. I took it really hard. From that moment on, I hated the day.

I kind of assumed that as I got older, I might get over it once I started dating. However, other than my ex-husband, I have never been in a relationship on Valentine's Day. So, it does not hold the same lovey feelings for me that it does for others.

Luckily, as a mom, I know that I will always have my very own Valentine. I don't want my daughter to grow up not enjoying the fun that this holiday can bring. That is why we did the Love Tree craft that I talked about in a previous post even though I am not crafty at all.

What about a tasty treat?

Charcuterie boards are all the rage right now, so I decided to try my hand at putting one together. I have seen many that are very fancy, but I decided to get things that were inexpensive and make it look simple but cute.

You can really use anything you want on a charcuterie board. You can also make them look however you want. Here is what I used:

  • Cutting Board & Heart cutters
  • Cute signs from Dollar General
  • Heart-shaped Hershey's Milk Chocolates
  • Fudge Covered Oreos
  • Mother's X's & O's Cookies 
  • Heart-shaped Peanut Butter Cups

As I said, charcuterie boards can be put together just about any way you choose. Some people make them packed in with goodies. I decided to leave mine a bit more sparse to keep it simple.

I placed the Oreos in the center of the board in a heart shape. Then I built things around it using the cookie cutters. Once done, I scattered the remaining chocolates around the board. Finally, I added the signs for a fun aesthetic.

  1. I am totally with you on making sure your daughter enjoys the fun parts about this holiday. Even though I am married, my husband has never been fond of this holiday so we never really celebrate it much. Like you, I have made it all about making my daughter feel loved and special as well. I make her fun gift baskets every year.
