We had the good fortune of connecting with Destiny Denay and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Destiny, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
The idea behind Boards By Bae came from my love of hospitality, celebration and creative expression. The ability of providing a memorable experience along with providing aesthetics too good to eat, it was like the universe was saying “Hey sister, this is for you!” It all clicked, so organically. I wasted no time, dove right in and have enjoyed every day since.

What should our readers know about your business?
Boards By Bae is a local Dallas Charcuterie Business. We mostly offer charcuterie picnic boxes in different sizes, graze table arrangements for events, individual bites and we’re open to your customizations ideas. We love getting creative with every display! What sets us apart is our hospitality, aesthetics and our drive to wow our guests every time, with our sourced products, packaging, etc. With only four months in the game, we are proud of our progression thus far. Each day, we are growing more and more, which is very exciting for the future of BBB. Everything so far has come from manifestation, believe it or not, the flow of energy surrounding the business has been so natural. We are constantly learning (from the good & the mistakes), being kind, supporting others and bringing consistency to the table. Call this a formula if you’d like but this is what has worked for us. I truly believe in energy, the energy you give is what you will receive. Boards By Bae is here for community, teaching and uplifting others, through this beautiful platform we’re blessed with!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
