  1. Place the serving platter you plan to use down on the table you plan to serve the cheese platter from. It is very difficult to move the cheese platter once all of the ingredients are in place.
  2. Start by placing the cheese on a serving platter. Leave space between each type of cheese.
  3. Begin filling in the spaces between the cheese with meat, crackers, fruit, and nuts.
  4. Continue adding to the cheese platter until all of the gaps on the serving platter are filled in.


Cheese should be served at room temperture. Remove the cheese from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you begin assembling the Holiday Cheese Platter.
