bistro table filled with holiday goodies

A bistro table filled with holiday goodies sets the casual, European tone for a breakfast or afternoon appetizer gathering. With this wreath, you can choose one or two base colors for your other decorations to create a smart, country, French feel. In the background, a vintage French book gets transformed into an artful black-and-white wreath. Embellish with a holiday greeting on a ready-made card or print your own.
