It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We’ve decked our walls with wreaths and filled our table with cheer, all to bring together these 5 DIY’s to help you host a styled charcuterie party!
A few friends and I decided to get together and share some of our talents in order to pull of this styled look. My number one tip when planning a party, is to never do it all by yourself. It’s always more work then you expect and there’s no sense in getting stressed out because then you really won’t be able to enjoy it like you should.

DIY HOLIDAY WREATH WALL
These wreaths were handmade by my mother-in-law. I fell in love with them one day when I saw them at her house and she graciously let me use them. She created the wreaths from grape vines in her garden and wrapped them around a wooden board with nails that form a circle. Weaving in and out, around and around each of these wreaths were made earlier in the year and left to dry to create the most beautiful hand woven rings.
I got greenery from a local florist and weaved the branches along half of the wreath to create a crescent. I adore the way they turned out and though a little tedious, they have held together so well as the greens have dried and maintained their form.
LEMON GINGER SPARKLING COCKTAIL RECIPE
I created this recipe for a recent post with SodaStream. It is absolutely delicious, we couldn’t resist have a glass or two during our afternoon charcuterie.
I share the recipe over on this Instagram post (coming soon), and do think you should take a peak. The Lemon Ginger mix was from YesChef.ca too!

COCONUT CRANBERRY BLISS COCKTAIL RECIPE
Keisha shared this recipe a few weeks ago and I remember thinking about how delicious it looked and I wanted to try it. I couldn’t resist adding her recipe to this list of holiday DIY’s and what you could bring to your next charcuterie styled party. Make sure to give it a look, not what you are expecting as ingredients I’m sure!
DIY ART & SILK GARLAND
Chalie brought over some of her recently painted artwork and silk garland that she had put together for an upcoming workshop. It was heavily requested that she host a workshop and she just held her first one.
I adore her work and think that it looks absolutely stunning within our holiday decor. If you are local make sure to check out her page and join an upcoming workshop to get creative with her.
I hope this post has inspired you with a number of DIY Christmas Decor Ideas for your next styled charcuterie party. There’s lots of charcuterie ideas out there, Enjoy!
