I feel like there are two types of people when it comes to Halloween. The first decorates for fall at the first sight of Labor Day. The second, rushes around to all the fall activities come mid-October. If you need ideas for Fall activities that you can do with your family, check out my post here with a free printable. I am definitely the second type, always late to the party. Either way, we always make the best memories together.
If you are like me, don’t you worry, Target has us covered. They have the best fall treats this year. Darrin came home with a shit load of snacks so we could make a charcuterie board. Lately we have been loving family movie and game nights. A Halloween treat board is perfect for a night in with the kids. It would also work for a girl’s night or an at home date night.
How to Make the Perfect Charcuterie Board
When it comes to making the perfect charcuterie board, the most important thing to do is make sure you have a snack for everyone. I love chocolate, so I added chocolate candy bars for me. Darrin loves oreos, so we picked Halloween orange oreos to add some color to the board. Apples with caramel and sugar cookies are Cassidy’s go to. Don’t be afraid to mix it up!
I added these fun Halloween sprinkles to the caramel sauce to give store bought some extra umph. Also, use ramekins if you have them or themed bowls to add to the holiday flair. This cauldron is from the Target Dollar Spot a few years back and made for the perfect chip mix holder. I save and reuse everything. If you are ever looking through my content, don’t be surprised.
As much as I love shopping and buying cute decor, I really love repurposing decor. My biggest tip is to buy decor that you love and will last a few seasons. Invest in good pieces. When shopping the dollar spot or at TJ Maxx, look for things that aren’t chincy.
Another thing, find a fun base for your charcuterie board. I found a cute little spooky ghost at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago and knew immediately I needed to plan a board. You can use the inside of cardboard letters, wooden boards, ceramic trays, plastic plates etc. Here is a really good chance to repurpose.
