Sweeten Up Labor Day!

Labor Day is just around the corner, but you still have time to plan a fun, delicious menu if you’re entertaining a crowd. Here are some fun and simple suggestions we spotted for celebrating the final days of summer this holiday weekend!
Charcuterie Boards: Charcuterie boards are as popular as they are eye-popping. We love how this Labor Day Charcuterie Board  incorporates the seasonal fruits of late summer, like peaches and cherries.

This mochi charcuterie board makes grazing light, fresh, and gorgeous! Here’s a pro tip: use a marble or stone serving platter, keep it in the freezer until you’re ready to build your board.
