This Charcuterie Bouquet is one of my new favorite things and makes a lovely gift or centerpiece for so many different occasions! The best part is that while it may look complicated, it was actually so easy and quick yet looks amazing! I listed all of my supplies, ingredients, and step-by-step directions below!
These disposable, wooden cones are the trick to holding everything in place while still looking beautiful! You can stuff them with your favorite charcuterie ingredients or sweets.
This is really up to you! These are the ingredients that I used:
- Salami (to make a salami rose – see directions below!)
- Cheese slices to roll into cheese flowers
- Grapes (green or purple work)
- Strawberries and blueberries
- Fresh basil or other herbs (as filler for the “leaves”
- Cute Macarons for other pretty sweets or accents
All you have to do is add the bamboo skewer to the center of the wood cones to make your charcuterie bouquet base!
- First, add the bamboo skewers to the wooden charcuterie cones. I’d recommend 12-18 cones, depending on the size of the vase.
- Arrange in preferred vase.
- Add charcuterie items to each cone. Alternate fruit, cheese, and meats for the best look (to avoid having two salami roses right next to each other, for example.)
- Fill in the spaces between the ones with herbs, such as basil or rosemary.
- Decorate with cute macarons or treats for an added touch. Enjoy!

Kitchen Links: I get asked all the time about the products in the background of my kitchen. Much of it is from MacKenzie-Childs, which I have slowly grown a collection of over the years! My favorites are this checkered chopping board, my black and white checkered teapot, and the gray and white checkered utensil holder. I also have this enamel canister that you can find in small, medium, or large.
Can I Prep This Charcuterie Bouquet Ahead of Time?
Yes! You can prep this a few hours ahead of time; just place the entire vase in the fridge so the contents stay fresh. I wouldn’t recommend prepping this more than a few hours in advance so the meats and cheeses don’t get dry.
Once you’re finished with your charcuterie bouquet, remove the food from the wooden cones and store in Ziploc bags or in Tupperware containers. (Any cookies can be stored at room temp.) The wooden cones are disposable but can be gently cleaned out to use again if needed.
I hope this Charcuterie Bouquet is a fun and festive new staple for you! For more fun Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day ideas, you may also love this Cute Cupcake Bouquet, this Candy Heart Chocolate Bark, or this Red Velvet Cheesecake Ball. Sending you all so much love!
