What’s the icing on the cake for a beautiful charcuterie board? Labels.
Yep, some cute calligraphy or rustic chalkboard labels can make all the difference in the presentation of your board. They are an adorable added touch that doesn’t cost much. You may be wondering: “Why labels? My guest will be able to tell what’s on the board.”
Here at Mmm…boards, we love charcuterie labels, and here’s why:
People often feel more comfortable trying new things and combinations when they know what they are. If you have a fancy cheese, adding a label with the name and even your suggested food combos will make sure it gets gobbled up.
Another reason why charcuterie labels are great is for clarifying allergens and dietary notes. Did you buy gluten-free crackers? Label them so your GF guests know.
Another important reason: aesthetics. Charcuterie labels can tie together your board in a variety of creative ways; read on to see what we mean!
We have seven different options for charcuterie labels that are sure to look amazing at your next charcuterie party or night in. Pick your favorite and let us know how it goes!

2. Chalkboard Cheese Labels
If your charcuterie board features a bounty of cheeses, these labels are perfect. We can see these paired with the labels above to accessorize your board. They come in black & gold, depending on what suits your style best.

Another option: write directly on your board. These boards come in a pack of 4, and each board is 12” by 8,” meaning that they are perfect for putting out a few different boards or making individual boards. You can label each ingredient, write someone’s name or leave a sweet message on the board- whatever your style is!

Making a trendy, table size charcuterie board? Cover your table in this brown paper, lay out your ingredients, and simply write labels on the paper as you go. This is a super fun option and a great way to get your guests to gather around the table together.
