How to Personalize Your Christmas Tree Spread


If you want to change it up and get creative, definitely go for it! Some simple alternatives you can use instead of what’s listed are the following:

  • Instead of olives you can use red or green grapes (or both to add some color). Not only are grapes delicious and work with meat and cheese they also make great looking ornaments for your tree.
  • If you are having trouble making roses you can also place the pepperoni (or other meats) neatly to form a tree as well. It still will look festive! Ham, salami, or even sliced deli turkey can make great additions.
  • Add a little star on top for a nice festive touch or you can use cheese slices to make an adorable star!

Don’t forget to think outside the box, you can really add anything to this Christmas tree charcuterie board to make it your own, vegetables can even be added around to look like decorations on your tree. Think cherry tomatoes for ornaments, broccoli and cauliflower for garland and tinsel! The options are truly endless.
