Friday Fun Stuff This and That

Alesandra Branca’s Mushroom Risotto Recipe on One Kings Lane sounds fabulous to me.  I am thinking I might try this for Christmas dinner.

You can find the recipe and lots of great entertaining tips here 

Crazy over this family room from the Atlanta Holiday Home Tour that Sherry posted about on her blog here 

One of the prettiest holiday rooms I have seen this season on Instagram from French Garden House.  If you don’t already follow her you might want to! I am hoping to see the enlarged version on her blog

A lovely Tartan Wedding Palette here 

A little bit of Tartan: Red and Green Colour Palette |

This fireplace  redo here by Annie of Most Lovely Things should prove to everyone the power of paint.  Doesn’t this room just make you want to curl up with a book this time of year.

If you need a last minute hostess gift run to TJ’s and pick up one of their pretty bouquets.  Wrap it up in butcher paper and tie with a pretty bow

  1. I love the painted fireplace. I've always said "a can of paint can change your life", you just have to pick the right color. ;)

  2. Love all of this Cindy! Must follow French Garden house!

  3. Cindy!! Thank you for including my fireplace in your post! That is so sweet! I'm dying over that plaid inspired wedding! xo annie

    1. Your fireplace is the blog rock star this week! Well deserved!!

  4. Cindy,

    I make Giada DeLaurentiis's mushroom risotto all the time and it's fabulous - I'm sure you can't go wrong with that for any dinner! Love the wedding theme (so cute!) and of course, Annie's fireplace! She and I were just messaging on her IG photo of it as I was expressing that I don't like my brick fireplace surround and I've been tempted to paint it but I'm chicken! I may just do it though - it looks so much better!

    Can't wait to see your home tour on Monday! I will be stopping by for sure...


    1. Sheila I am going to look that recipe up as well. I am thinking about serving it alongside beef tenderloin for Christmas to change it up a bit...what do you think?

  5. Cindy I adore Alessandra and Lidy from french Garden House! That berry torte is a wow! I look forward to your Holiday Home Tour!!

  6. Cindy,
    I absolutely love each and every item on your list this Friday. Most Lovely Things house is an all time favorite in blog land. Oh my, that plaid wedding and all the details makes my heart sing. I'm always inspired by your finds and designs, can't wait to see your home tour on Monday.

  7. I am with you, that mushroom risotto looks great. The plaid wedding is simple and charming. Have a great weekend.
    xo, lissy

  8. I loved Alessandra Branca's entertaining piece on OKL and like you, need to try the recipe! Excited for the tour Monday! Happy Sunday ~
