15 Super Gorge Cheese Plates You Need for Entertaining This Year

15 Super Gorge Cheese Plates You Need for Entertaining This Year

Cheese heads have a new reason to be happy thanks to these crazy beautiful serving boards.

By Courtney Thompson

 Entertaining is one of my favorite things to do. And, um, it’s also one of my least favorite things to do. While I love, love, love catching up with friends, stocking my bar, and making my home look pretty as a picture, I sort of dread the menu planning. I’m not a Top Chef, nor am I a throw-it-all-in-a-pot-and-it-tastes-delicious kind of girl. But you know what part of the food curation I do love—what I totally freaking enjoy?? Cheese. Yep, I mean who doesn’t love cheese? (No friend of mine, that’s for sure.) And yes, I go overboard on my cheese plate every damn time.

Whether it’s a cocktail party for 20 or a dinner soiree for four, I’m breaking out cheeses creamy, hard, and everything in between. An herbed spread? You betcha. Parmesan crisps? Done. Accent it all with some grapes and fancy crackers et voila, you’ve got yourself a grazing station.

A close second to my love of cheese selection is finding gorgeous vessels to serve them atop. With so many materials, colors, and textures to choose from, the hardest part is only choosing one. (Which is why I never set that silly rule for myself.) Here we’ve rounded up 15 cheese boards and trays that range from sleek and shiny to rustic and knotty, that are so pretty no one will notice you forgot to prepare an entrée.
