My husband is having his work peeps over again for another dinner-24 peeps actually. This time I wanted to have a theme but didn't want to go crazy. Should I say my hubby didn't want me to go crazy...what does he expect from having a party planning wife????
Anyway, I was inspired by my recent New Orleans trip. I picked a Mardi Gras theme. No, I'm not into that sort of thing...well, I have been to a couple....when I was much younger. My trip was during the Saints playoffs! I am from Pittsburgh and we have the most loyal, over the top fans (I'm one of them). However, I was very touched by the people of New Orleans. Everyone, I mean everyone was really into the game! When they won, the locals where hugging and many of them were crying! They have been through so much!! I can't even imagine!! So I am routing for the Saints and the city of New Orleans this year! Mardi Gras is New Orleans!!
So not going over board with the decor...but you know I got to do something, right???I found these flower garland at $ Tree. They came in a lot of colors and I think they are really cute. Plus they are 9 ft long!!! Boy, this saves me a lot of time making them! So I got a bunch in purple, green and yellow - hence Mardi Gras colors. I'm such a lucky girl! Here is a sneak peek. The party...oops I meant dinner is Tuesday!
