Additional Information



  • Chalkboard labels (stickers – they come in a variety of shapes and sizes)
  • Chalkboard pennants
  • Chalk or chalk pen
  • Postal wrap paper
  • Large birch round
  • Parchment paper
  • Votive candle jars
  • Flameless LED votive candles
  • Glass dome (optional)
  • Variety of cheeses, nuts, olives, etc.


  1. Cover a table with a length of brown postal paper. It doesn’t need to fully cover the tabletop, simply line it down the center of the table. Cut a few sheets of parchment paper to fit on top of the birch round. Place cheese on top of the parchment paper so that oils from the cheese don’t seep into the birch round and for easier cleanup. Use chalk and the chalkboard pennants to create labels for each type of cheese.
  2. Snap the ends off of the chalkboard pennants as needed to fit them into the top of each piece of cheese. Cover with a large glass dome (optional).
  3. Use olive branches to casually decorate the table. Place flameless candles inside the votive holders and place randomly across tabletop. Add large hunks of bread right on the paper and set out jams, nuts, olives and other things as desired to accompany the cheese. Use chalkboard sticker labels to help guests identify the various foods.
