I’m assembling one later this afternoon and have a good selection but don’t want to over do it - I read that two soft and one hard is best to not over complicate.

What combinations do you do?

Last night, we had Cornish yarg, black bomber cheddar, caramelised onion cheddar, Boursin cheese and a couple of baby bells for DH confused then two types of cracker, chutney, butter and some grapes.

Yesterday we had: a mature Brie, a traditional Red Leicester, a Stilton with cranberries, a cheddar and something else (recommended by the cheesemonger and I can’t remember what it was).
I put out grapes, walnuts, olives and cherry tomatoes on the vine. Green tomato chutney on the side, port to drink.
God I love cheeseboards!
Great user name BTW- I totally agree grin

This was ours last night before we opened everything! We also had some gherkins and a large box of mixed crackers.

Plus apples, celery and some homemade haw jelly. smile

These all sound fantastic thank you and are giving me a good idea of what to do - @Mummydoctor that looks good.
