@momlife_cooking Möbel Rogg Endversion Unser weihnachtliches Charcuterie Board in Tannenbaumform müssen wir euch unbedingt zeigen. [Werbung] Wir lieben es, der Jahreszeit entsprechend Foodboards zu gestalten. Jedes gelegte Foodboard wird ein Unikat und die Köstlichkeiten, die sich darauf wiederfinden, können je nach Gusto, dem Kühlschrank-Inhalt und der Jahreszeit entsprechend verwendet und gestaltet werden. Die Grundlage unseres Foodboards bildet unser Holzbrett von @moebelrogg Wir lieben die Optik und vor allem die Größe dieses tollen Teils. Im Onlineshop von @moebelrogg und in den Einrichtungshäusern von Möbelrogg findet ihr eine riesige Auswahl zu allen Themen rund ums einrichten. So haben wir’s gemacht: 1. Frische Rosmarinzweige in Tannenbaumform legen. 2. Käse, Salami, Aufschnitt, Obst, Nüsse und Knabbergebäck Grüppchenweise innerhalb der Umrandung anordnen. 3. Highlights setzen: z.B. mit Käse, zu Sternen ausgestochen, ausgelösten Granatapfelkernen und Kiwibeeren. So einfach könnt ihr eine perfekte Vorspeise oder Brunchidee vorbereiten, oder ihr habt eine super schöne Snack-Variante für gemütliche Abende mit der Familie oder Freunden. Wir wünschen euch einen super schönen Tag 🩶🩶 Sabrina & Christina #tannenbaum #foodboard #charcuterie #christmasfood #brunch ♬ Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee
