How to Make Thanksgiving Snack Board

To make this Thanksgiving charcuterie platter I purchased everything at Trader Joe’s. I love their cheese selection.

What Makes this a Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board?

I also like to purchase seasonal items, especially fruit and vegetables. For example, the addition of persimmon to this board give such fall vibes, as do the green apples. I love the idea of keeping items seasonal, along with favorites and standard items.

How did I  make the cheese letters that spelled “Thankful”? I used alphabet cookie cutters. You can find them here! It’s really a cute touch especially for holidays, but you could also spell out a name or a motto!

Also, how cute would charcuterie board look on this Turkey Platter?
