Dinner parties are so much fun to throw with friends and family. You sit down at a lovely table and enjoy good quality food over wine and great conversation. When the main course takes forever to cook though, people can get a little antsy. You start hearing bellies rumbling with hunger and start to panic about the waiting time. To prevent this scenario, creating some sort of snack board is the best way to help guests even forget they are waiting for supper. With a variety of sweet and savoury flavors, you can set out a few of these snack boards to keep friends entertained for at least an hour before supper. Just enough time to set the table, light the candles and slice the roast beef!

1. Light Cheese Board

If supper is almost ready but you want to make sure your guests aren’t famished, this board will do the trick! Filled with fresh cheeses and fruits, this board is the perfect balance between sweet and savoury.

2. Melon and Prosciutto Board

Are your guests less about cheese and more about meat and fruit? This board is light but rich in flavor.

3. Vegan Charcuterie Board

Play it safe yet creative with a vegan board that can accommodate a variety of eating restrictions. Check out that bright pink hummus!

4. Call Me PMc Charcuterie Board

Here is a simple option for a charcuterie board using regular crackers and cheeses you can find at any grocery store. Hummus pairs perfectly with cheese and crackers.

5. Appetizer Platter
