Skeleton Charcuterie Boards Are Perfect For Halloween

Are you planning for the most thrilling and scariest Halloween party this year? Why not join the trend and prep for a night of fright on the dining table with the skeleton charcuterie boards? A large serving tray originally used to display and serve cured meats, the charcuterie board has recently gained popularity. What used to be a simple serving vessel for cured meat has now turned into an art of presenting garish assortment of meats paired with mouthwatering accompaniments such as cheese, sauces, fruits, and toast.

Since we all love to celebrate all holidays with a festive banquet, many people have been adding a few special touches to the traditional charcuterie boards for specific holidays. Christmas charcuterie boards, for example, features a vibrant selection of morsels and nibbles to represent the colors of the festive season. They usually have sprigs of thyme, star-shaped cheeses and cranberries scattered around the glazed ham and smoked salami. Last year’s Halloween, the skeleton charcuterie boards became a big hit on Instagram. And if you missed the opportunity to join the trend then get ready to go all out this year.

If sweets aren’t your thing, you can still go for the traditional cured meat foodstuffs and arrange your selections to match the Halloween theme. Furthermore, using meat products and savory sauces allows you to create gory designs that are downright spine-chilling. Fill the rib cage with salami roll-ups to represent the lungs and place plenty of sausages on the abdomen part to make them look like intestines. If you want to take the scare factor a notch higher, you can cover the entire skeleton with ham slices to mimic the appearance of raw, peeling skin.
