How To Create The Perfect Movie Platter

It's that time of year again when staying in and watching a movie is the perfect night in. A warm fire, your favourite film and some tasty snacks sounds great! But what snacks should you have with your movie night? Well, have you considered creating your own movie platter?
Let's discuss exactly what a movie platter is and how you can create one!

What is a movie platter?

A movie platter is a selection of delicious treats for you to enjoy either alone or with family or friends! Similar to a cheese board or a charcuterie platter but with different contents.

It's a fun way to share food which looks very visually appealing with its range of colours.

How to make a movie platter

Firstly, you will need a serving board to display all of your treats. We recommended our round marble boards for a stunning look and a larger surface to be able to fit more nibbles onto.

Include a variety of food from fruits such as strawberries and grapes to sweet and salted popcorn. Other popular snacks to include are white, milk and dark chocolate, a mixture of sweets, crisps!

Include small tapas bowls to place on the platter to separate food such as crisps and grapes.

There's no right or wrong to what you can include on your movie platter, just have fun with it and add your favourite treats!
