      So adorable! I was a little apprehensive at first when my rosemary sprigs were sticking straight out at you; however, once I filled the tree in with all its goodies, I was able to pin the excited rosemary down with the toothpicks and it came out so nice. I started by wrapping my cone in Saran wrap, and then pushed the rosemary into the styrofoam carefully. I then toothpick-ed queen and kalamata olives, baby mozzarella balls, and 1/2"-thick salami cut out with 1" heart cookie cutters all over the tree. Like *Kathy*, I too placed the Perky Olive Penguins around the base of the tree. I cannot believe I didn't take a picture of my masterpiece, but hopefully I can upload a picture from someone who did. Everyone raved about how cute this was. I will definitely be making this for future Christmases!

      This is such a neat idea and makes a holiday dinner or party so much more special. It's not hard to do and makes a nice presentation in addition to a nice aroma from the rosemary. I will probably do this every year.
