You can use any kind of dried fruit, nuts, and jams/pastes. You just want to make sure your plate has a lot of options and a nice blend of flavors. When picking cheeses have a good balance, so everyone is happy. Try to go for some whites and some yellow or whatever looks good that day at the store. I always have brie, goat, and blue cheese because I find they go quick when serving.
Try a traditional wooden board for a more rustic feel. You can find them anywhere these days. You can always go for a marble board, but those don’t give off such a warm feel.
