Every year for Christmas I tend to make something in a wreath form, not consciously, but when I thought about it I realised that I always must have a wreath. This year's wreath item came from my friend Rebecca from Intolerant Chef who created a Christmas Caprese wreath salad. It would suit in that it would creatively present a simple salad but adorned in a way that it would fit both themes of Italian and Christmas. And you know how much I love a theme...
