Christmas Tree Cheese Platter

by Laura

At most holiday parties, you can usually find a cheese board or platter. I must admit, I really enjoy them, plus they are simple to do.

Sticking with my tree theme that I accidentally fell into when planning this week post, I am sharing a cheese board arranged to look like a Christmas tree. You can use various types of cheese and a variety of grapes.

You can have everything ready ahead of time and then just arrange it all on the platter or board when it is time for your gathering. Your guests will love the extra touch of festiveness that this Christmas tree cheese platter will give to your holiday table.

Do you have any tips on how to make this before hand and travel worthy? I’m thinking a foil covered cookie sheet but not sure if it would survive a car ride! Thanks, this looks amazing! 🙂

Roll up foil to make a border to go around it.
