Courtney Beaner owner/founder of Charming Graze Charcuterie. Charcuterie company serving all the metro-Detroit Area.

I started this little hustle in September 2022. I have never taken the plunge on doing something that I can actually call my own until Charming Graze, and I have to say-“It is the COOLEST feeling in the world”. A stranger is buying something I created!? WILD!!

I curated a board for a friends anniversary party and it left everyone buzzing, every comment and compliment was the same-“you need to do this as a business”! maybe they knew something that I didn’t? I took a leap of faith and created an Instagram/Facebook account for my boards, and it snowballed from there. I am a believer that it is never too late to pursue your passions. I started Charming Graze as a passion project in November 2022 as a way to share inspirational curated boards. I believe that sharing a stunning graze should be an experience, elevating the way we entertain and a time to reconnect with what is important.

I have always loved hosting and entertaining guest in my home, making delicious food look beautiful and connecting with loved ones over an Instagram worthy board. I’m a true believer that we eat with our eyes first. About 1.5 year ago I curated my first board and the concept of grouping various items together on the same platter and gathering with family for an interactive experience. What I did not realize is that once I started making boards, I never wanted to stop! Every event, gathering, holiday or occasion fueled me with a desire to curate something beautiful and delicious. I prefer to call it “Edible art”. Friends have often encouraged me to start a business, but I always dismissed the idea since I already had a full workload. I soon became the “go to person” in my community for boards for birthdays, baby showers, thanksgiving, holidays, and basically every event in the year. Partnering with other small business has also enabled me to offer my customers the ability to personalize their experience. Charming Graze offers engraved boards and accessories that can be customized for all special occasions.
