Today marks the end of all the Mardi Gras celebrations. I love Mardi Gras—with the vibrant colors, decorations, food and of course, fun that is associated with it, it's kind of hard not to.
You can imagine how excited I was to find Embellished Bayou this morning after checking out Rachel's Mardi Gras round-up over at One Pretty Thing. All of the ideas Rachel featured are awesome (check them out here), but what really caught my eye was the comment Christy (the brains behind Embellished Bayou) wrote in response: "I love Mardi Gras, thanks for not over-looking it!"
Mardi Gras IS too often overlooked...at least here in New York where I live. With Valentine's Day this weekend I wasn't able to celebrate Mardi Gras the way I usually do, so I'm promising myself that next year I'll be prepared.
Catch the Mardi Gras spirit and celebrate! Even if you can't manage a small celebration tonight, gather up all of Christy's great decor ideas, crafts and fun history and facts about the holiday and plan a dinner party in honor of the holiday some time soon.
Happy Mardi Gras!!
