This charcuterie is made into a shape of Christmas tree using cheese, deli meat, and some fruits. The pomegranate arils really add a pop of red!



  • handful of pomegranate arils
  • handful of fresh blueberries
  • 24 ounces of an assortment of: pepperoni, salami, and ham
  • small crackers, broken up
  • small handful of red or green grapes
  • 36 meat sticks, cut in half
  • cheddar cheese, cubed
  • 2 Babybel
  • 1 medium to large round brie
  • (optional) pretzel sticks, broken into 1-inch sections
  • (optional) fuet sausage


  1. Start at the bottom of the Christmas tree. This is optional, but if you want a “base” of the Christmas tree, start with a handful of 1-inch sections of broken up pretzel sticks.
  2. Add around two rows of blueberries that span almost the width of your board – leave about 1-inch on each side.
  3. Add two rows of meat sticks over the blueberries as you go “up” the tree. Make this one around the same length – we’ll start decreasing the width on the next step.
  4. Next center the brie right and to the left and right of it, add a babybel on each side. Fill in with cheddar cubes and top with some grapes for a nice pop of color. Make the width slightly shorter than the previous step.
  5. Quarter-fold slices of ham, pepperoni, and salami and line them across the in 3 layers. Make the width slightly narrower than the last step.
  6. Add some fuet sausage slices if you have it. If you don’t have fuet sausages skip to the next step.
  7. Make 3-5 rows of pomegranate arils, width slightly shorter than the previous row.
  8. For an interesting look add broken up crackers that is deep yellow or orange in color, of you can try cheese here – hand torn looks better here!
  9. Create the final shape of the Christmas tree with the remaining pomegranate arils.
  10. Top the Christmas tree with a pre-cut star shaped cheddar.
  11. You can fill in the remaining spaces with pomegranate arils, or top it with a couple more grapes or blueberries. 


Hint: if you’re planning on moving this board around, add a thin layer of honey where the blueberries are so it stays in place. Your guests wouldn’t mind the honey dipped blueberries when they’re eating it! It would be a pain to clean later, so make sure you wax your board!

Garnish with sprigs of wintery herbs such as rosemary.

You can also try entire display, placed on food-safe decorative parchment paper (on Amazon) such as these (on Amazon).

Fill in spaces with salami meat flowers, see how to here.
