Mardi Gras-Party Like You Mean It!

Hi everyone-tomorrow's Fat Tuesday! Happy Mardi Gras!  Love playing with these fun colors!
Let the good times roll:@)

It's hard to see the pretty bowl in the pic above. I found the plate and bowl at Salvation Army for $1.38.
Free beads from a King Cake a customer sends to the office, primrose $1.29, napkin rings and glass 50¢.

Earl says "party hardy, what happens in "N'awlins, stays in N'awlins!
Um, wait a minute... what do you mean this pic is on the net???"

  5. Love your tablescape. My husband is planning to make a King's Cake but doesn't want to use colored sugar. I'm sure it will be deliciously dull!!

    Best,

  16. My husband smuggled a piece of King Cake home from his office for me tonight! I usually make one but didn't have time this year.

    Earl is having lots of fun!

  17. How fun! I just attended a Mardi Gras party last Sat and then went to see the parade. We collected so many beads but I sent them all with my daughter (who was visiting me) for my granddaughter......Christine

  18. I didn't do a Mardi Gras table this year, but I also love those colors. I've never had a King Cake...does it taste good or just look good?

  19. I know Earl is throwing the beads!

  20. Hi Sue! Not sure the one we get is either... Kinda shaped like a football stadium coated in electric colored sugar and the recipe is made for longevity as opposed to yum-i-tivity:@)

  29. Lynn, what a great Mardi Gras setting. Your bowl looks like a crown and who could argue with your great prices on your finds. Enjoy your King cake even if it might be missing its sugar. Thanks so much for sharing today.

    I've been fighting the urge to bake another King Cake. They are so yummy.
