Nothing makes a holiday table look more festive than a Holiday Party Board! Grab your favorite red and green snacks or dye free candies and let the creative juices start flowing. There’s no wrong way to make a party board and it’s a great way to get the kids involved in the festivities!
Here’s some inspiration for you!
Nothing says Christmas like CANDY! Luckily it’s all dye free, but still totally festive. I shop for all my candy at Trader Joes, Whole Foods (both of these stores only sell dye free foods) and online. When I make this one my kids go nuts as you can imagine.
This party board is all about red, white and green for Christmas. Reach for plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Green: like kiwi, sugar snap peas, edamame, cucumbers, green grapes, steamed or raw broccoli and Granny Smith apples.
Red: raspberries (freeze dried or fresh), red bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, pomegranate seeds, dried cherries and cranberries and radishes.
Don’t forget goat cheese, French bread, crackers, castelvatrano olives, almonds, mozzarella, red and green chocolate candies, gummies and brie with a little honey comb on top for total perfection.
This is the appetizer board I’m replicating this year. It’s basically a full meal on a board to enjoy while you sit by the fire playing board games. Grab any and everything you’ve got in your cupboard (this is the perfect opportunity to use any remixing crackers, olives, fresh or dried fruits or nuts in your pantry or fridge). Don’t forget the steamed shrimp cocktail with fresh horseradish mixed into ketchup or chili sauce. You will be shocked at how many vegetables your kids will eat when they’re presented in this way.
Want even more of a meal? Add sushi sandwiches to your board and fill them with red bell hummus, whipped cream cheese, avocado, cucumbers and more. Also add some festive toothpicks for easy pick up.
Vegan marshmallows, dye free candy canes, popcorn, gingerbread cookies and more. These are the days I love wandering from Trader Joes to grab a bunch of their holiday treats.
Can you post your favorite charcuterie boards? I’m looking to gift a board to a friend.
