It\’s no secret that I love creating various charcuterie boards, and themed boards have easily become my absolute favorite. So, you know I couldn\’t pass up the opportunity to create a candy board in honor of my favorite day of the year Valentine\’s Day! This love holiday is filled with hearts, powdery pinks, stunning reds, and chocolates that are sure to add a little romance to your home – even if you\’re single. 

Here are some tips and tricks for creating an aesthetically pleasing and irresistibly delicious Valentine\’s Day charcuterie board:

1. Monochromic 
When it comes to creating a visually captivating Valentine\’s Day candy board you want most of your board to be filled with the colors of the season. Pops of cherry, powdery pink, rose metallic pink, and more. Not only are these hues cheerful, but they create a gorgeous presentation. I added a little contract with gold and chocolate tones.

2. Traditional meets Unexpected
I love the nostalgia that traditional assets create, but I also like to spice it up with a little something unexpected as well. Instead of a big dish of candy hearts, I adorned the popcorn with it, and also added some beautiful Sweetheart popcorn from Grand Rapids Popcorn company for visual aesthetics. I mixed common shapes, flavors, and textures together to bring a sense of whimsy to the board. 

3. Placement
Figuring out the placement for everything on your Valentine\’s Day candy board can get a bit overwhelming. Use dishes to puts sweets in instead of just having them lay directly on the board. Start with your biggest thing in the center or off-center of the board. From there work your way around the board adding all your elements. There is no wrong way to create a Valentine\’s Day candy board, so just have fun.
