Saturday night I was invited to a Mardi Gras party. Instructions were to come in a costume. I couldn't think of a more appropriate one than a voodoo priestess. So, I gathered the things for this costume.
I'm not sure if I should be proud or embarrassed that I had to buy nothing for it. I had everything except the skull. But, Greg had it.
I won the costume contest, which was fun.
I made the voodoo doll to go with it. Again, just from things I had around the house. But I like her. I decided burlap is way overdone. I wanted my voodoo doll to be a bit more fashionable.
This is Patti, our hostess, and her daughter. I took divinity and it was a photo prop as well as a dessert
Trish was a gnome.
The Reverse Vending Machine was a hit.
Greg took photos of a lot of people, and I took a few, but we didn't get everyone.
I did get this one of Greg and Nancy was spectacular with her flamingos.
In the spirit of Mardi Gras, Creative Sisterhood was tonight so I decided to make King Cake for us to enjoy.
I hadn't made it in many years, but it was tasty!
Happy Fat Tuesday!
