How to Make A Perfect Cheese Plate. 1. Choose the right cheese. Three different cheeses will provide enough variety for a cheese plate that serves six to eight people; add more choices if you'r ehosting a bigger party, and estimate about a pound of cheese (total) for every five guests. Aim for a variety of different tastes and textures. A helpful clue: Cheeses that look different usually taste different. For a good mix, try one fresh, smooth cheese such as a mild goat or mozzarella, and a buttery one with a soft, edible rind, like Brie or Camembert. Then add one or two semi-hard or hard chesses: Go for a milder one, like Gruyere or Manchego, or a dry, sharp variety, such as Pecorino Romano or Parmesan. If you like, swap one of these cheeses out for a blue cheese (creamy Roquefort or pungent Stilton both work). 2. Pick the vehicle. For the most part, we view crostini and crackers on a cheese plate as just a way to get cheese into your mouth. Set out some slices of crusty bread or baguette or, if you prefer something crisp, try water crackers, which are plain enough that they still let the cheese shine. 3. Make some sweet selections. The natural sweetness in fruit complements the saltiness of cheese. Serve something fresh, like grapes or pear slices, or dried fruits, such as figs, prunes, and apricots. 4. Just add crunch. A good cheese plate is about more than just taste --texture plays an important role, too. Add nuts, crunchy apple slices, or crisp crackers for a crunchy texture that offsets rich, creamy cheeses. 5. Get a board. You don't need a dedicated cheese board -- a clean wooden cutting board will work just fine. We like the rustic look of the sheesham wood board pictured above. Buy it here. 6. Consider timing. Cheeses taste best at room temperature, so let them sit for an hour or so before serving (longer of large chunks or hard cheeses). That said, no one will complain if you forget and serve your wedges and wheels straight from the fridge -- it's still cheese afterall!

Chalk board table runner Here’s a great idea for a table runner/food labeler from Yum Sugar. A runner that you can write on with chalk! You could also use black chalk cloth as a less expensive alternative (about $10 per yard). You can actually get a long runner by cutting 1 yard in half lengthwise, then laying the 2 pieces end to end.

I think we can pull this off as a centerpiece. Thicker candle on top. White carnations. Purple "cupcake" wrap around the edge. Won't take up too much space on the table either. Maybe we could replace the candle with a photo/text instead.
