The Best St. Patrick’s Day Charcuterie Board Ideas

Make this St. Patrick's Day the luckiest day of your life with these gorgeous charcuterie boards!

What’s the most fun way to prepare a snack for family and friends? It’s a beautiful charcuterie board, of course! If you’re unsure of what exactly a charcuterie board is, it’s basically arranging meats, cheeses and other finger foods in an eye-pleasing pattern on a board or plate. The contents can range from deli meat to chips to cheese to fruit and vegetables—it’s all up to you!

But now it’s time for some Irish-inspired pieces. These St. Patrick’s Day charcuterie boards by talented foodie @ainttooproudtomeg have everything you love about the holiday and more.

3 Snack Boards That Are Pure Gold

So, we already know what encompasses an average charcuterie board: finger foods galore! However, we find it much more interesting to see how people take the normal recipe and switch it up a bit. We’re talking themed boards, like Disney-fied boards, Halloween-themed boards (like this jack-o’-lantern board) and Christmas-themed boards…but what about some other holidays?

What sets these particular boards about are the color schemes. St. Patrick’s Day calls for a little luck and lots and lots of green. Some things you might include in this board are snap peas, pickle spears, green grapes and broccoli. You may even include some four-leaf clover cookies or seaweed sheets if you’re feeling adventurous.

Whatever screams “Irish” to you is exactly the kind of food you want on your board!

You may also want to go a more colorful route. Paying homage to the classic “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow” lore that inevitably follows St. Patrick’s Day, these boards feature fruits, veggies and snacks of all shapes and colors. Include some red bell peppers, orange slices, yellow peppers, cucumbers, blueberries and purple grapes. Just don’t forget the gold-wrapped chocolate coins for the perfect touch!

These gorgeous boards are the masterpieces from Meg Quinn of Ain’t Too Proud to Meg. Her site and Instagram page are loaded with beautiful boards fit for any occasion, from Christmas to birthdays. Meg even builds dessert boards for when savory isn’t hitting the spot—and you better believe they’re just as stunning as the rest.

How to Try Your Luck This Year

No matter how you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, there’s no right or wrong way to create a cheese board. Choose food items you and your loved ones enjoy, and it will always be a great time. Never tried making a board before? Try one for the first time this year—maybe you’ll get lucky!
