8 Disney-Themed Charcuterie Board Ideas To Add Some Pixie Dust To Your Movie Night
Charcuterie boards have really changed the snacking game, especially for movie night. Instead of just a bowl of popcorn, you've got to have some delicious cheeses, assorted meats, and vegetables arranged perfectly on a board as well. If you're planning on watching a Disney movie, you've got to check out these Disney-themed charcuterie board ideas. By pairing your board to your chosen film, it'll add that extra bit of pixie dust to your experience.
It can even be a subtle nod to your favorite Disney character. For instance, if Belle from Beauty and the Beast is your go-to heroine, use the flower technique to arrange your meat slices so it looks like the enchanted rose is on your board. Another subtle way to make it bibbidi-bobbidi-beautiful is to use foods associated with the film, like apples (hold the poison) for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Since picking out a movie to watch on Disney+ is already hard enough — because there are so many classics — these eight Disney-themed charcuterie board ideas will make putting together your snacks easier. That way, you'll end up with a happily ever after kind of evening with a charcuterie board that will make you want to sing, "Be Our Guest."
