We'll also give you tips on how to take beautiful photos of your appetizer boards that will be the envy of your friends and family. So whether you're planning a summer BBQ or a winter party, read on for some inspiration!
When it comes to choosing your ingredients, the sky's the limit! But we recommend sticking to a mix of savory and sweet things, as well as a variety of colors and textures. This gives you a visually appealing board that has something for everyone. Some of our favorite items are meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, crackers, nuts and olives.
How do I arrange the ingredients nicely on the serving board?
This is actually not that difficult. Start with the larger items first and then fill in the gaps with the smaller items. We also like to make small piles or rows of things, as opposed to haphazardly placing everything on the board. And if you're really looking for a wow factor, try using decorative bowls or containers for some of your ingredients.
Now let's talk about how you can make your drinks board even more beautiful with some simple decorations. One of our favorite ways to do this is by adding fresh flowers or greenery. This can be as simple as a few sprigs of rosemary or lavender, or you can go all out with a colorful bouquet. Other fun ideas include placing candles around the shelf or using pretty serving utensils.
Decorating the drinks board
When it comes to decorations, anything goes! You can use bowls, plates, flowers, leaves – really anything you think will look good with your chosen ingredients. We like to use mason jars or pretty containers to store smaller items like olives or nuts. And don't forget the all-important cheese knife – this is a must have for any cheese lover!
Pro tip: If you're decorating a plate for a special occasion, try to use items that match the theme or color scheme of the event. For example, red and green Christmas-themed decorations would look great on a holiday drinks board!
Take pictures of your drinks board
Now that your drinks board is all ready, it's time to take photos! We recommend taking photos in natural light as this will bring out the colors of your ingredients. The angle of your photos is also important – we like to take close-up shots from slightly above the plate. And last but not least, don't forget to style your photos with some fun props! This can be anything, from a nice napkin to a festive banner.
