I have been intrigued by Charcuterie boards for the past year or so. My daughter-in-law and I created one for our Family Pre-Christmas Party last year, and I have been fascinated ever since.
I have bought different trays, boards, and even an “S” initial container, but I haven’t made a single one since last Christmas. I think I have felt overwhelmed by the thought of the creativity. Things are about to change. I found my inspiration!
Alexis Davenport from Bohemian Boards (a local company to me) has an amazing Charcuterie business. It has grown from just a dream to just recently being voted into the top 3 in catering for our county! When you see her boards, you understand why.
Alexis is a full-time mom of two, and she stays busy creating boards for people. It was her love for entertaining that sparked her creativity for cheese boards many years ago. In September of 2020, Alexis was able to pursue her dream and open Bohemian Boards.
This has given me so much inspiration! I can tell you that I plan on making at least one board for Thanksgiving. I am going to start with the initial “S” container. I hope you will try them out also. Please share any of your creations in the comments.
If you are local and would like to have one made, she makes them for all occasions and really personalizes them. If you choose to go in that direction, here is her contact information and social media contacts:
I look forward to seeing your creations!

You can use any type of board you have to make these amazing creations. I actually used a lazy Susan last year. I now have a bread board as well as several Charcuterie boards I plan on using. If you don’t have anything, here are a few options:
