The Pearl Hotel

1410 Rosecrans Street, San Diego, CA, United States


Remember when we scouted the top three party trends of Summer? Now, the Summer-to-Fall trend forecasting continues with this iconic transitional plate perfect for warm or cool weather. One can simply never go wrong with this charcuterie board how-to.

That’s right. Switch things up at your next get-together with a build-your-own charcuterie board. Toppings and decor? Take it from the experts at MIHO Catering Co. and Hostess Haven serving up tips, tricks and inside look at what’s trending in the world of event decor.




To make your gathering even more fun, hand out wooden slabs to each person so they can build their own board!

Tip: Choose whole chunks of cheese and fun seasonal fruits (fresh + dried) like persimmons or stone fruit paired with nuts and lavender honey! You could even use these to incorporate other colors onto your tabletop display.

- Hostess Haven Founder, Farra Miron




As an alternative to individual cheeseboards, one board for every two guests is a great way to bring an interactive element to your tables.

Here's what you need: 3 meats and an array of cheeses from hard to soft. Incorporate honeycomb, seasonal jam, roasted garlic hummus, toasted bread, artisanal crackers, fresh fruit, olives, seasonal veggies/fruits (here we used pickled cauliflower, cherries and peaches) and candied walnuts for best results.

Miho Tip: Always make sure there is something for everyone to eat! A wide variety of different flavors will always be a crowd pleaser.
