I’m not going to lie, I usually set out a cheese tray from the grocery store but wanted to try a Christmas tree cheese board this year. Pinterest came through with lots of inspiration and I couldn’t wait to give a tree-shaped cheese board a try. This year it was our turn to host Christmas for my husband’s family where the kids exchange gifts. I felt like this was the perfect time to use my new tray for an appetizer. If you don’t have a tray already, you can grab one HERE and pick it up with your last-minute grocery order.

Trust me, it’s not as hard as you may think putting together the cheeseboard. I struggled a little keeping my lines straight, but no real Christmas tree is perfect if you ask me. 😉

What I Used for the Christmas Tree Cheese Board

  • Medium Sized Tray
  • Cubed Cheese of Your Choice ( I used colby jack and pepper cheese)
  • Fresh Fruits (I used raspberries, strawberries, red grapes and green grapes. If you can find cotton candy grapes that’s even better!)
  • Pepperoni
  • Crackers (We are a fan of basic Ritz Crackers in our house.)

In all honesty, the hardest part of the tray was cutting out the star at the top. I tried it freehand but had to print out a stay and use it as a stencil. That went much better!

I started out with the pepper jack cheese and made that the top of the tree. I then alternated fruit with the rows of cheese and ended with pepperoni at the bottom. [You don’t see the pepperoni because I first forgot but then applied it before I set it out and served it. I’m still an amateur blogger it seems.]

The only downfall of the Christmas tree cheese board was that as everyone ate it I kept wanting to fix it so it didn’t look like a tree that lost all of its branches. I didn’t have much luck keeping up with it because it was a hit throughout the night.
