Once the mixture is combined, form into a log with one end wider than the other on a piece of plastic wrap. Continue to shape with your hands until the log resembles a tree.

Once the tree is formed, place upright on a serving plate and begin to garnish with the parsley, slivered almonds, Craisins, cherry tomatoes, Marcona almonds, and rosemary sprigs.
