Simply Stated 79

Week of December 11 – 17: This week we’re talking all things charcuterie, and beyond! Join us for the final supper club of 2023 where we show you how to host an entire meal, board-style.

We’re counting down the days to Christmas and we’re just a week away.

Our college kids are home for break and we’re loving every moment of it!

It’s taken us a while, but we’re both finally done decorating our homes, so much for being early this year… LOL

Now we need to make sure we remember to take photos and videos so we have something to share next November!

Because let’s be realistic, next year isn’t going to be any less hectic for either of us: after all, the first Simply2Moms wedding is next November!

This week we had a wonderful time with our book club and you can see all the details below.

One of our favorite parts was this yummy winter cocktail!

We shared the recipe with our subscribers, did you get it from our newsletter?

You can find it in our VIP Printables too.

Over this next week, we’re doing our best to soak in as much of the magic of the holiday season and time with our families as possible, and hope you’re doing the same.

This Week on Simply2Moms

It’s our last supper club of 2023 and we may have saved the best for last!

We both love charcuterie, and we took the idea to a whole new level on Simply2Moms this week.

We hosted our book club’s holiday get-together and instead of a grazing table or charcuterie board, we served an entire meal, board-style!

We love entertaining, but we don’t want to spend tons of time cooking or being stuck in the kitchen instead of hanging out with our guests.

The solution?

Serve up food on boards!

We’re sharing everything you need to know to host a charcuterie board party.

Technically, all you need to make a charcuterie board is a, well, board!

But some things make it easier to make your food displays look amazing.

We’ve rounded up our favorites, the things we use when we create our boards.

These would make an amazing Christmas gift too!
