Setting up a cheese board

Goatjunky | Aug 13, 201309:37 PM

My second son is leaving for college in about two weeks. We are having a small going away party for him with about 20 guests. We are not having a sit down meal, he has in mind appetizers, small bites, etc. (This one is my foodie budding chowhound) He has requested charcuterie and a cheese board. I IKinda new to me. We do this on a small scale for the family, which is where his love of it comes. My question is the mix. There are just so many choices. Hard, soft, pungent, mild, fruits, pates, chacuterie, fruit pates... i have the apps down but am trying to come up with a plan for this. How much to plan for for this size group. He tends to like strong flavored and sharp cheess and i feel like i must balance it with more mild choices. And how to pair the rest. I know its a subjective question but what would you do on this scale? And most of the people coming are open to tring new things so it doesnt have to be safe
