Grazing Boards

When a close friend asked me for a couple of platters for a local family who lost a loved one recently, I knew I definitely wanted to treat them to something special and pretty. With Valentine's approaching I knew I had a few pink raspberry pretzels on-hand that would definitely cheer them up!


My friend and I figured the best way to care for the grieving family was with providing some snacks because often times the food can get overlooked during such a hard time. I have heard from many friends and clients who mentioned having a cheese board or grazing platter was the perfect thing when dealing with the loss of a loved one. Here is what I used to put these together for the family.
