Cheese, sausage, and crackers are something that is just one of my ultimate favorite snacks and a portable charcuterie board can be easily incorporated into your elopement for a picnic. When I go to a party, I looove when people have cheese and crackers. I grew up in Wisconsin so ours were relatively simple – your typical cheddar cheese slices or cheese spreads, summer sausage, and ritz crackers. Exactly like the Lunchables you used to eat! But always a staple, because, you know…Cheeseheads 🙂
The beauty of these boards is that they can be whatever you want them to be. Fancy or simple, purchased or DIY, it’s your choice! AND, what I’m showing you is an easy way to make a portable charcuterie board. You can pop all of this in your backpack for your hike, set it up at your destination, and have a fancy snack (adult Lunchables for my 90s babies) while looking at some awesome views! I’m a big fan of DIY because I love creating things with my hands. But if you want to order from someone else, you can find a few links below!
***you’ll have leftovers, so you can either use it all for your entire group or save some for when you get home!
Because you’ll be putting this in your hiking backpack and taking up the mountain, I find it’s easiest to pre-cut everything and separate it all out at home so when you get to your elopement picnic spot, you can easily pull out everything and then quickly assemble. This leaves ample time for the most important part – EATING!
Have a picnic at the top of the trail or after your ceremony! Take a second to assemble the board, don’t forget a beverage, and then enjoy!!

You can also get tons of cheese and meats at any grocery store, or make a stop at Pikes Place Market and go to Beechers Cheese. You should also check out The Cheesemongers Shop in Leavenworth if you’re on that side of the Cascades. My favorite all-time salami is from Coro Foods, a local Seattle specialty!
