Cheese boards are one of those undisputedly photogenic (and totally Instagram-worthy) food dishes that are fairly easy to put together, and offer something for everyone at your table (even for plant-based and vegan folks). To be honest, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love a good charcuterie platter—especially when paired with some fine wine or craft beer.

Once you’ve mastered the art of curating your cheese board with your favorite wine-complimentary meats, cheese, fruits, and spreads, the next step to perfecting your cheese platter is finding the right accessories to showcase your culinary creation. If you’re going to do a cheese plate the right way, you can’t just use any old plate—you’re going to need a backdrop that’s well, a bit more sophisticated.

Whether you’re hosting a few friends for an at-home happy hour or dinner party or sharing an intimate sunset glass of wine with your S.O. on the patio, a finely curated cheese board is an essential sidekick to your evening glass of wine—so why not make it look extra pretty for your guests, and of course, Instagram stories, right? There are plenty of stylish cheese boards designed to make your festive fromage arrangement look like you’re a bona fide sommelier.
