We love a beautiful crudité board almost as much as Instagram and Pinterest. And with our wide selection of paddles and platters, there’s no end to how you can use them, style them and most importantly, eat off of them! Because, after all, we all eat with our eyes first.
Below are images from our studio that will hopefully provide inspiration for your next gathering’s apps platter.
There’s no rule that says you can’t have more than one board. We’ve collected two of our marble-look (surprise, it’s melamine!) platters to serve a variety of meats and cheeses on. And even included little chalkboards picks (BAMDCB35) to guide those who don’t know their brie from their Havarti.

Mixing up our Acacia wood collections gives a cohesive, warm direction to a generous board display. And let’s not forget the often-overlooked heroes of any charcuterie board: the bowls and dishes that corral olives, tomatoes, and other finger foods that would otherwise roll away.

Set the scene for an outdoor event or picnic for two with a distressed (nope, it’s melamine) serving tray and coordinating flowers. A glass olive oil dispenser nearby is both pretty and functional to flavor your simple snack. And don’t forget a bottle of wine, which pairs perfectly with any meat, cheese and bread selection.

Charcuterie for one? Why not? Sometimes you just want to nibble on aged salami, olives and French bread right off your kitchen island. Boards can grow as little or large as you need, just another reason why we love them.

From one to many, our Lunara platters in assorted sizes are the perfect tray to feed a crowd. The unique matte finish with copper flecks and textured pattern resembles upscale ceramic … but, you guessed it, it’s durable melamine. And the slight lip around the edges keeps cubed food in place and transport nearly spill-proof.

And let’s not forget desserts. There’s always room for little arrangements of pastries, tarts, cookies or other seasonal treats. Our black slate melamine display is raised to bring some height and interest to the table, with incorporated cut-outs that make it easy to lift and move.

And, last, sometimes a simple arrangement is the best. Our mini Acacia bread board is perfect for a small selection of fresh chocolate-covered strawberries. Share it with the table, or keep them all to yourself.
