Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is coming and that means Ash Wednesday and Lent are not to far behind.

I set an intimate table for two with masks and beads and coins. How are you All ? I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and were filled with Lots of Love.

My cake stands consist of a green cake plate with a purple smaller cake plate topped with a beautiful silver mask and jewels and cascading beads.

I've never been to a Mardis Gras celebration nor to New Orleans but its on  to do my list.I would love to tour the old streets and just admire all the wonderful architecture

The smell of all the different foods I bet would be amazing oh and the music would be spectacular.

So I will just envision I am traveling thru there on a leisure Holiday.

 Will you join me as I think about Mardis Gras and New Orleans? have you been there yourself? I imagine quite a few of you have and tell me is it as remarkable as it sounds? Well have to put that further on my to do List yes indeed.have a wonderful week and this week Pray for someone  who is struggling with something whatever it is let them know you are there and feel their hurt.

Join us for Between Naps on the porch , Home is where the Boat is , Candlelight your Supper, Cuisine Kathleen and so many more Creative insightful whimsical and just plain fun Blogs that are out there .Have a great week.Susie
