the holiday table :: olive wreath

December 16, 2011
So what will you be up to on this fine weekend ahead? 

Holiday shopping?   Baking?   Holiday-partying-your-face-off?  Digging around for a pair of pantyhose without a run in them?   I'm pretty sure those don't even exist.
If you happen to be entertaining (or even plan to be entertained for that matter) the perfect Holiday Table must include an olive wreath.  It's quick, simple and so darned festive.  There's no recipe, of course.  I simply gathered a bit of fresh holly and rosemary and shaped a wreath then plopped the assorted gourmet olives on top.  
If I were a guest at your party, I'll expect an olive wreath as anyone with standards should.  I'm kidding, I'm kidding...kind of.

I love meeting people who don't like olives. More for the likes of you and me. :)

I am in LOVE with this idea for an olive wreath! I just had a holiday party this past weekend and I so wish I had seen this so I could have done it. Thanks for sharing, I am definitely marking this to try out next year!

Saw these photos on HGTV --- did they steal your idea? http://www.hgtv.com/design/make-and-celebrate/entertaining/modern-cocktail-party-ideas-videos
