When my kids were younger, I used to get them to eat more vegetables by making cute arrangements like this fun veggie tray!

Lately, I’ve been making a lot of charcuterie boards. I love charcuterie boards because they have a little bit of everything for everyone. This easy vegetable jarcuterie combines the variety of a charcuterie board into a bite-sized vegetable flower arrangement.

What is Jarcuterie?

Jarcuterie is a fresh take on the ever popular charcuterie boards. Charcuterie boards have been trending for a few years now because they’re a stunning way to serve meats, cheeses, crackers, and vegetables all on one board.

Now take this idea, and put it into an into individual charcuterie cups–or jarcuterie!

How Do You Make a Flower Jarcuterie?

To make an easy flower jarcuterie, select glassware that will hold your arrangement. Then use vegetables your party guests or kids will like.

Carrots, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and celery are perfect for a vegetable charcuterie board in a jar. The celery will be the stems of your flower arrangement. Just fill the cups with the celery, then stick the vegetables on the toothpicks and the toothpicks into the celery stalks.

I used cream cheese as my glue to stick the pieces of carrots onto the cucumber flower. The lettuce leaves are placed around for cuteness.

What Do I need to make an Easy Flower Jarcuterie?

To make a flower jarcuterie jar, you will need:

  • Small vases, cups, jars, or orange juice glasses.
  • Vegetables your kids like, plus celery for the stems and lettuce for leaves.
  • Cream cheese (optional to use as glue)
  • Flower-shaped cookie cutter (I used one for playdough!) Or, you could try these cool vegetable cutters.
  • Toothpicks
  • Water

  1. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Extremely helpful information specially the last part I care for such info a lot. I was seeking this particular information for a very long time. Thank you and good luck.

  3. Those are so fantastic! Being a Registered Dietitian, I would love to put these on my blog sometime this week!

    Hope that’s ok with you!

    Thanks for sharing,

  4. @Kristin,

    So cute. I use this idea for finger salad on a toothpick to get the little and big kids to eat their veggies when the hostess says to bring finger foods to the potluck.

  5. That looks sooo yummy– and cute!! I just did a post on cookies and I had to include yours in because it looked just as delicious! I filed this at thecraftersfilebox.com.

  6. I just don’t get it about children not liking veggies. My 3 boys always loved everything vegetable, and so does my grandson. Teachers line up in the school lunchroom to watch him chow down on a bag full of mixed vegetables. He loves them all, eats them all with relish, and if you give him a small puddle of ranch dressing, he thinks it’s dessert! I think it is parental trepedation that kids pick up on. If you show the slightest hesitancy about veggies, they’re going to see it. Be bold! If you assume your child will like it and just have it available, eventually they’ll want to try it. Even deny it a few times by useing reverse psychology. But it is OK to not like two or three. Everyone has something they really never learn to like. Chill out, and don’t let your kids near the ones who have been made into picky eaters by over-anxious parents. Remember: if they get hungry enough, they’ll eat it.

  7. This is a brilliant idea! So creative. We don’t even have kids yet, but I think I want to use this next time we have a little party. Individual veggie vases for each guest to munch on…

  8. Adorable Amy! Thank you. For some reason since you changed hosting services i am not receiving updates. I will see if re-subscribing solves the issue. Have a great weekend! 🙂

    Hugs,

  11. I love the veggie bouquets, they are too cute! But what I love even more is the fact that your adorable daughter is sporting an Eskimo Joe’s t-shirt and it is in Oklahoma State colors!
