Christmas Tree Cheese Board

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum! This cheese board is super simple and festive with all the ingredients assembled to look like a Christmas tree. What is not to love?

There’s something about cheese – it’s like the duct tape of foods!

There are days that I don’t want to cook. I just want cheese, fruit, and wine.

When I host a party, I always set out a variety of appetizers like chile con queso, guacamolesalsa, and a charcuterie board.

This Christmas, I’ll be simplifying my cheese board and letting my kids make this easy-to-assemble and gorgeous Christmas tree cheese board.

Christmas Tree Cheese Board


  • Cheddar Cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • Halloumi Cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • Dill Havarti Cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • Seedless green and red grapes
  • 1 kiwi, sliced
  • Fresh thyme, rosemary, and sage sprigs
  • 1 piece celery
  • 1 star fruit, sliced


  1. Arrange cheese cubes, grapes, and kiwi in rows on platter or cutting board to resemble a Christmas tree shape.
  2. Add fresh herb sprigs between.
  3. Place celery at bottom for the tree trunk.
  4. Add a star fruit slice to top off tree and additional slices on top of ingredients.

I’d love to see what you cook!
