Start by adding elements that anchor the board like the small dishes and the cheeses. Make sure cheeses are cut into small bite-sized slices or pieces.
Add fruit, veggies, and meats around the cheeses. I created little pockets of sliced peaches along with cherries and grapes removed from the vines and arranged the sliced meat in little stacks.
Fill in with your crackers, arranging them so they are easy for guests to grab.
Add spreads or dips to your containers.
Fill in any gaps with fresh herbs and/or loose fruit pieces. I used fresh rosemary, thyme, and sage along with loose cherries as fillers.
Add small utensils, such as mini forks, spoons, tongs, and spreaders for cheeses, meats, and spreads or dips.
