Charcuterie, Cheese & Fruit Plates

I saw a post on Pinterest from which inspired me to go with many prepared platters for our New Year ’s Eve party. I went a little bigger than planned but I am happy with the outcome. There was seriously a little bit of everything. I think the best way would be to list everything that was laid out on the table and then you can decide what inspires you for your next party...
