She was a dear as always and returned with a large bag of 'throws' from my sister. This sister is a member of the Krewe of Muses, an all female Mardi Gras krewe. They are known and celebrated for the much sought after throw of their High Heels. I was gifted with a high heel along with tons of Muses beads and their newest prized throw...what every girl always needs in her purse...Muses bandaids! I love you Boo! Merci une soeur!
Over the weekend some friends and I gave a party to celebrate the upcoming wedding of the son of dear friends. As is it was Mardi Gras weekend, of course we went with that as the base for food and decorations! Purple, Green and Gold are the colors of Mardi Gras...enjoy!
In another post I'll show you what I made...stuffed muffalettas and bar nut palmiers. I also served the traditional Mardi Gras King Cake a sort of danish with a hidden plastic baby to represent the baby Jesus. Pralines were made by another hostess who also made shrimp remoulade. A dessert tier of miniature mousses, parfaits and ambrosias were another favorite. Pork loin with homemade cranberry compote and rolls for hearty appetites and trays of cheeses, caprese skewers, veggies and cheese straws for those wanting to just dine on the light side.
We had a lovely blend of age groups of guests and everyone was having fun celebrating the upcoming nuptials. Weddings and babies seem to be one of our very favorite occasions to celebrate! We have some babies to be celebrating in the very near future!
If you'll excuse me for now, I'm going out in my back
"THROW ME SOMETHING MISTAH!" I'm thinking I'll only startle the pigeons...
