the celebrations that come along with spring’s arrival are easily my favorite part of this season: easter egg hunts, mother’s day brunches, the first grill out of the season, & bridal showers.

& boy, oh boy, do i have a fun reason to celebrate today!

my blogging bestie, allie, is getting married to the man of her dreams next weekend & a few of my other best blogging friends & i are throwing her a virtual bridal shower today!!!

allie & i met when we both started our blogs in 2016-ish & hit it off right away. allie has the kind of genuine sweetness about her that instantly puts you at ease, & she’s just honestly one of the most kind-hearted people i’ve ever met.

we’ve bonded over our similar journey in blogging, as we both left our corporate jobs at about the same time last year, & have been figuring out this whole “life as an entrepreneur” thing together ever since. leaving an office job to do your own thing, no matter how much you love it, is a scary & hard process with quite a learning curve. i don’t think i could have made it through the past year without her. she’s been my rock on countless occasions & i am so grateful for our friendship.

next weekend, allie & her fiance, j, are tying the knot & i am SO excited for them! they are honestly the CUTEST couple, & if you’ve seen allie’s instagram stories, you know that allie & j are pretty much inseparable (& they’ve got some pretty mean dance moves, just sayin’…).

here’s to you, allie, & the man of your dreams, & your forever together. i’m so happy for you!!!

it’s no secret that allie LOVES herself some aldi. if you follow along with allie on instagram, you know she shares her aldi grocery haul every monday on instagram stories. i love taking a peek at her haul every week because i am also kiiiind of obsessed with aldi.

aldi is one of my favorite places to shop, especially when i’m prepping something that would normally run a little on the pricey side – like a huge cheese board to feed a crowd at a family gathering, backyard party, brunch, or bridal shower. in fact, aldi is pretty much a one-stop shop for an epic cheese board. their cheeses are very reasonably priced & are of great quality, & you can always find other special cheese board accompaniments throughout the other aisles in the store.

aldi’s cheese assortment is one of my favorite reasons to shop at aldi. you can always find extremely well-priced cheeses, for both everyday use & for special occasions, like building the ultimate aldi cheese board!

i’ve found that aldi keeps their cheeses in a couple of different spots in the store. you can find their more everyday cheeses in the refrigerator section, right next to the hummuses & salsas. they also always have seasonal or special cheeses in a separate refrigerator section, near the meat & poultry case. check out both & choose whatever sounds best to you!

whenever i’m making a cheese board, i like to first arrange my cheeses of choice, and then fill in some of the space around the cheese with a few of my favorite meats for some more substantial snacking options as people work their way around the cheese board.

if you’ve shopped aldi, you know that their nut selection is INSANE. they have everything from baking nuts, to snack nuts, to gourmet trail mixes, to fun seasoned nuts. you really can’t go wrong – especially when their prices are so, so right. i love adding nuts to my cheese boards – i think they really elevate any cheese board!

i always love throwing in a homemade touch, no matter what i’m doing. totally optional, but totally easy is a 3-ingredient honey, goat cheese & fig spread. the tanginess of goat cheese serves as the perfect base for sweet fig spread & a drizzle of honey – this spread is addictive. trust me.

Instructions

  1. Prep the cheeses: Slice and crumble the cheeses, as necessary for easy serving & snacking. Arrange them on your favorite cheese tray.
  2. Arrange the meats around the prepared cheeses.
  3. Arrange the nuts, fruits & veggies, & crackers around the rest of the cheese board. You can place them in small dishes or jars, or arrange them right on the cheese tray itself. I find it’s easiest to start with the largest components, then fill in the extra spaces throughout the board with the smaller components. Have fun with it!
  4. Enjoy! ☺️
