Are you guys big Mardi Gras fans? I’m going to be honest I didn’t know a whole lot about it until recently. I was asked to put together a little Mardi Gras feature for Re-Play Recycled so I wanted to make sure I knew what I was getting into. The low down of what I got was Mardi Gras basically means Fat Tuesday. On Fat Tuesday is when everyone would stuff themselves full of pancakes, meat & pastries before giving it all up for lent. I don’t know about ya’ll but that sounds pretty awesome to me! But can I swap out the pastries for chocolate cake was my question?
So after doing some research I thought my girls might enjoy a little Mardi Gras breakfast. I picked up some beads & coins which are staples down in New Orleans when it comes to parade time and found some cute butterfly masks as well. Take a look as some simple ideas I put together to showcase the fun colors of Mardi Gras, like this coin runner. How fun is that? Happy feasting!
Hey look…pancakes, meat & pastries!!
