Yesterday we toured the lovely home kitchen of this Santa Barbara-based style blogger. Samantha loves to entertain at a moment's notice; she's often inviting over friends for a quick charcuterie platter or light tea and nibbles.

Cutting boards! Collected from a handful of different shops and as gifts from friends (the initialed long one was a wedding gift, handmade by a close pal), a large cutting board makes the perfect serving tray, according to Samantha.

When putting together cheese or charcuterie plates, nothing looks more pulled together (yet effortless) than a large, rustic wooden board. I couldn't agree more, Samantha! You've inspired me to treat my cutting boards with a little mineral oil so they're ship-shape for summertime hangs!
