Now that the weather is getting warmer you may feel inspired to invite some friends over for a nice outdoor soiree. An easy way to impress your guests is to prepare a killer cheese plate and this infographic from Red Envelope shows you exactly what you’ll need.

The first step in preparing a cheese plate like a boss is getting familiar with different varieties of fromage. You’ll want to feature several cheeses with contrasting textures, flavors and colors - let’s say a wedge of camembert, a hunk of parmesan, goat cheese and a stilton.

Cheese needs co-stars and that’s where crackers, fruit, chutneys and preserves come in handy. Take your pick among sliced baguette, mini toasts, bread sticks or your favorite crackers. Spreads with a strong flavor like cherry will pair well with robust cheeses like gorgonzola.

A combination of fresh and dried fruit is also great, as are nuts like almonds and pistachios. What matters is that you get creative and prepare a well-balanced cheese plate on a gorgeous plater or cutting board. Oh yeah, and don't forget the wine!
