This dreamy board by @mangosandmayhem shows how effortless it can be to make your favourite foods Valentine’s themed. When you think of a charcuterie board, cured meats often come to mind, but they’re not going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

For this beautiful board, simply make a list of their favourite snacks and treats and opt for pink colours or heart-shaped options. We know what you’re thinking, you can’t find pink cheese… That’s where the DIY work comes in. For any snacks that aren’t pink or heart-shaped, get creative with customizing them, like these cute heart-shaped apple slices.

If you’re stumped for some ideas, then we’ve listed some great filler options below.

  • Strawberries
  • Marshmallow’s
  • Melted Chocolate Dip

Keep it simple

Nothing says I love you like a heart-shaped cheese envelope filled with cured meat, right? We love how @dapperdisneyhome has made this simple Valentine’s Day charcuterie board so fun and thoughtful.

If you’re looking for a small Valentine’s Day charcuterie board, this option is perfect for you. Pick a handful of their favourite treats and get creative with your set-up. Cookie cutters are a great way of customising your snack shapes. Or try building a heart-shaped mould to hold some nuts and sweet treats.

If you’re hosting valentines in a small space, then try adding a cute pink blanket with some balloons for a romantic vibe.
