Who has their Christmas menu planned? I feel like I'm close, but I'm definitely not done. One of the biggest hindrances to actually deciding what I am going to make is Pinterest. I see so many cool things and ideas every day, I keep changing my mind. Are you on Pinterest too? Join me there and we'll Pin together!
This wreath, is really stunning and a great centerpiece for your holiday appetizer table. Best part is you can make it as big or small as necessary to fit your needs. I think it would look even better on a giant round platter. I was shocked I didn't have one and will fix that the next time I am at the appropriate store. I think it would be cool on top of a lazy Susan too.
You could even make the rosemary wreath around a large wheel of cheese and have a basket with the bread slices nearby. So many options for this one. If your wreath is big enough, a round, ramekin filled with dip in the middle of the bread could also be an option. Let your creativity run wild with this one.
Also, if you are having lots of stay over guests for the holidays, this is the perfect kitchen project for them to tackle. House guests love feeling helpful and they want to contribute (at least the good ones do).
This wreath is also doable for a teenager who enjoys helping in the kitchen and even for those adults who love to help but lack cooking skills.
Because it's so pretty, anyone who makes it will feel satisfied and proud of what they've put together.
If you decide to make this wreath over the holiday season, snap a picture and post it on our Facebook page, we'd love to see your version.

- Place the sliced bread in the middle of your serving tray in the shape of a circle. Place rosemary sprigs around the bread, keeping the round shape to resemble a wreath.
