Busy Weekend

It was a very busy weekend with stuff to do around the house and another "Culture Club" event at Serenbe. This time our topic was how to take what you have around your home and restyle it for a fresher look. Dana and David are both stylists with retail backgrounds and very good at what they do. Another resident volunteered his living room. It was great fun. Everyone was asked to bring an appetizer and the winning dish would be featured on Marie Nygren's "Serenbe Style and Soul Blog". Fun!

Here's my dish...asparagus with proscuitto

Here's the winner -- A fennel bulb and an antique slab of wood made all the difference to stuffed mushrooms.

John's bookshelves after rearranging. The secret is high to low -- of course, if your bookshelves are full of books, then they are more functional and less decorative. But most of us have "stuff" in our bookshelves.

One of the neatest things David and Dana did was to go out into the woods and find little plants -- floral and greenery, twigs and sticks. Then, they added "micro beads" and glitter and set their holiday table with lots of this. It was so pretty.

is that a pastry spiraling around the asparagus? I'm in need of a new appetizer idea, so share the details!!

for the spiraling asparagus, go to Pepperidge Farm website. It's puff pastry sheets spread with garlic/herb boursin cheese, topped with single layer of thinly sliced proscuitto. Easy and pretty.
