Mardi Gras

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!
