I like my DIYS like I like my Jeopardy questions (ahem, answers): quick and simple. Here’s a quick and easy way to make your Christmas table festive: DIY mini rosemary wreaths.

Simply coil a sprig of rosemary into a circle and tie together the ends with ribbon and voila, an instant and sweet addition to your Christmas tabletop.

You could also use twine, if you are so inclined.

Top each plate with a miniature rosemary wreath, or put one around the base of each wine glass, or even fashion them as napkin rings.

Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to get spriggy with it.


A sprightly lemon at each place setting adds a fresh pop of color without going for the more expected traditional combo of red and green.
