Around the World // DIY Travel Inspired Food Board

August 16, 2020

Come one, come all and get on board because we are going around the world! Yup, you read that right. Not even quarantine can stop us from creating this travel inspired food board! We celebrated Becca’s birthday earlier in July who is our team travel bug! This is perfect for the world traveler or adventurous soul in your life! Take a quick peak below for how we created it and how you can customize it for a friend or family to make them feel extra special!

First things first, snag yourself a super cute serving tray or board. We picked up this beauty of a board locally at Joyfully Said Signs! Next, we ordered these adorable toothpick flags, if you are crafty you could probably DIY them, but we opted to buy them ????  Just be sure that the toothpick flags have the correct countries that you will need! From there, we picked out countries that Becca had traveled to or that had special meaning to her! And next comes the fun part! Making, baking and arranging foods that represent each country!

Here is the list we ended up with:

  • US: Mini Sliders
  • Mexico: Chicken Tacos [we used these mini taco stands to hold them up!]
  • Canada: Tarts
  • Brazil: Brazilian Cheese Bread
  • Italy: Meat and Cheese
  • United Kingdom: British Scones
  • France: Croissants
  • China: Spring Roll
  • Sweden: Sticky Buns
  • Lebanon: Falafel and Hummus

Full disclosure: We did a loose interpretation of these items, and did take our own approach/put our own spin on it!

We added some extra cuteness with these gingham napkins, and these adorable Rifle Paper and Co. travel themed notebooks!d

Finally, arrange it all on your serving board or tray and you are ready to go! Easy as that! We’d love to see your creations, tag us if you give this a try at home!

And for your pinning pleasure…

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]

The LIY Virtual Book Club was born in 2020 as a way to connect with you, our LIY Community, and to encourage each other to hit the books– virtually. Our first official meeting was a success [as in, we laughed and sipped wine which is considered a success in my book 😉 ] and we’ve […]
