mason jar cheese tasting trayStart with some jelly jars and a gold plate charger from Old Time Pottery. You will also need something for guests to serve the cheeses. I used these mini wooden forks but you could just grab some toothpicks as well.

Cut the skewers off so that they are just taller than your jars. Wrap the tape around the tops and cut into a flag shape if desired. Write the name of your cheese on the tape.

Add the cheeses of your choice and the flags to the remaining mason jars on the tray.

    Yum! What a great way to have a lot and not have a cutting board overflowing!

    Super cute idea. Sometimes your serving tray takes up so much room. Better to go “vertical” with the jars.
