3 Stylish Ways to Create a Covid-Safe Charcuterie Board
We're big fans of charcuterie boards for holiday hosting but this year, in the midst of a pandemic, hosting your closest pod will look a little different. Roxy Te Owens, founder and creative director of Society Social (she's in the leopard print!), partnered with fellow Charlotte, N.C. local Meggie Sullivan of Queen Brie for creative ways to individualize charcuterie and we are already drooling!
"In our opinion, a holiday dinner isn't complete without a fabulous charcuterie spread," says Roxy. "I mean, forget the actual dinner, we could live off of prosciutto!" Agreed! Here's how she and Meggie are being extra cautious to keep multiple hands off the collective board, from individual boards to paper cones! We love these ideas — so pretty too!
Idea #1 Individual Charcuterie Cone
How cute are these?! They're kid-friendly and make for easy cleanup too. "These are perfect for hosting as friends and family can easily grab a cone and munch and mingle. No need for plates or napkins!," says Roxy.
Here's another pretty (and brilliant!) way for displaying the cones.
Idea #2 Individual Charcuterie Mini Board
Let each monogrammed board serve as gifts! "Great for intimate dinners. Bring your hosting game to the next level by creating individual charcuterie boards for each of your guests on monogrammed boards. Once they've cleared their board, let your guests take them home as a party favor!," says Roxy.
Idea #3 Individual Charcuterie Box
"A chic alternative to an appetizer plate. No need to hover over the kitchen island! These individual charcuterie boxes allow guests to take their treats to their seat," says Roxy.
So beautiful, delicious and safe for these times — win-win and win! Thanks Roxy and Meggie!
