There are many things I love about summer, but two of my most favorite things are charcuterie boards and eating outside. We love enjoying some hors d’oeuvres and cocktails on our deck or by the pool during these magical warm months. So when Nautical Boards reached out about their new brand, I was intrigued for several reasons.
The name itself captured my attention immediately. You have me hooked if the word “nautical” or “coastal” is in your brand name. Two, as I mentioned above, we love charcuterie boards, so a company that sells serving trays and cheese boards was intriguing. And three, I found the brand’s story and the look of the product to be beautiful.
Handmade in Atlanta, GA, these nautical themed serving trays and cheese boards mimic the look of a classic boat deck. I personally love the contrasting dark and light wood of these trays and I love that a cleat hitch is used as the handles. I’ve literally never seen such a unique and beautifully crafted serving tray before.
I’ve been using our serving tray for several months now and I’m seriously obsessed. The craftsmanship, design, and functionality are all just top notch. I especially love how sturdy this tray feels. And, the design features a carved out, recessed body which allows for tons of room to display your favorite snacks and drinks. It can hold all the salami, cheese, crackers, fruit, nuts, veggies, and chocolate that you want (definitely a win if you are a charcuterie snob like me). Plus, when you aren’t actively using it, it acts as a beautiful decor piece in your kitchen (we keep ours on display at all times)!
These boards make for the perfect gift too. Choose from serving trays, carving boards, or cheese boards. You can customize each item with your monogram, your boat name, a special date, your last name, a “welcome home” if you are gifting it, the list goes on. One of these items would make such a special gift for Father’s Day, weddings, anniversaries, housewarming gifts, retirement gifts, or as a just because gift for someone who loves boating! The options are endless and I guarantee that the recipient of one of these trays will love it as much as we do.
I seriously cannot recommend this brand or their product enough. I love my serving tray so much that I’m teaming up with Nautical Boards to give a lucky winner a small Oval Serving Tray. The giveaway begins at 10am EST tomorrow June 10! Be sure to follow me on Instagram for the details.
