My 42nd birthday is two days away!  I’ve gotten to a point in my life where, instead of lavish celebrations, I just want to keep things simple.  I have my own annual tradition of visiting our local farm store to buy myself pie and possibly a new plant.  And since I’m so into treasure hunting at yard sales this year, I might also stop by a few of them on the way back home.

The week before my birthday, I tend to go entirely into “treat yo self” mode!  Because not only is it my birthday week, but after this week I try to tighten things up a bit – what I eat, what I spend, and the like.  So I’ll indulge a bit.  Maybe I’ll do a little extra shopping and eat like I’m Marie Antoinette.  Case in point, this dessert charcuterie board.

I was gifted a wooden serving board recently.  Of course, the first thing that sprung to mind was, “I need to make charcuterie!”  And what did this birthday girl want? Birthday themed charcuterie!

This dessert style board includes all kinds of goodies like birthday cake truffles, cookies, a variety of fruit, and – my favorite – macarons!  And to really make this board birthday-worthy, I added some celebratory touches.

As I always suggest, plan out your board before you put it together.  To start, I added the fruit to the board.  I used a combination of strawberries, raspberries, and cotton candy grapes.  I even arranged some of the raspberries to form the number “42.”

With the berries in place, I added the cookies (I made cake mix cookies) and macarons.  After that, I scattered some of the birthday cake truffles across the board.

To finish the dessert board, I added some birthday candles as a cute, additional touch!  Then, it was time to snack!
