Today we’re moving from Valentine’s Day to Galentine’s Day here on Louella Reese! And kicking off the celebration in a very sweet way – a Valentine’s Day Dessert Charcuterie Board to make for your girl friends when you host a Galentine’s Day celebration!
Everyone loves a good charcuterie board when hosting. It’s easy, looks beautiful, and is always a crowd pleaser. And while we all love us some meat and cheeses let’s sweeten things up for our gals this Galentine’s Day with a charcuterie board full of all desserts everyone will love! After all, would it really be a Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day celebration without chocolate and a little indulging!
Below you will find tips on how to create the perfect Valentine’s Day Dessert Charcuterie Board!
How to Create a Valentine’s Day Charcuterie Board
Pick a color scheme
Having a color scheme will help blend everything together and create a more visually pleasing dessert charcuterie board. Opt for two to four colors with some neutrals mixed in.
For Valentine’s Day a couple of easy color schemes include:
- Red, pink, white, and black
- Pink, rose gold, white, gold, and brown
- Shades of red, white, and brown or black
- Shades of pink, ivory, and caramel
- Shades of pink, tan, chocolate brown, and a deep green
Have a large variety
Let’s be honest, Valentine’s Day (and/or Galentine’s Day) is a time to indulge in all things sweet. Chocolates, candies, cookies, and more! So remember that when putting together your dessert charcuterie board. You want to have a little of everything for everyone. Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cookies, crackers, candies, and maybe even add a few sauces for dipping.
Having a variety also gives your board more depth and again makes it more visually appealing! Do remember to stay within your decided color scheme/palette.
Add a coordinating beverage
It is a holiday and reason to celebrate after all! The perfect addition to your dessert charcuterie board is a fabulous bottle of Risata Wines Sparkling Rosé. Not only is the bottle the perfect compliment to your board it also doubles as decor! The pink bottle + rosé will look beautiful on your counter or tabletop. Oh, and while complimenting your board visually it will do so flavor wise as well. Risata Wines Sparkling Rosé is a crisp sparkling wine with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and delicate floral notes.
