Good Morning readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I apologize for my lack of blog posts lately, but it’s only because I’ve been working on some exciting new projects to share with you for both Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras starting with today’s post! Krystal from A Pinch of Lovely and I teamed up to throw the ultimate Mardi Gras Balcony Party which of course includes: Randazzo’s King Cake, Mimosas, King Cake flavored coffee, Decorative cookies, White Elephant Design Cups, Mardi Gras masks and plenty of beads to throw! Oh, and we can’t forget the Zing Zang, which is essential to the best Bloody Mary recipe! Stay tuned for deets on our fab Bloody Mary station and recipe later this week!
In case you didn’t notice, the balcony we partied on is nice and big, but super narrow so we didn’t have any space for a food and cocktail table. We got to thinking about some alternative options for a table and I came up with the idea of brining the bar cart outside! The bar cart worked perfectly because we could easily wheel it out of the way when needed and we didn’t have to keep running in and out of the house to refill our drinks or grab more cookies. However, we kept the King Cake close by on the yellow pouf near our chairs so we could conveniently stuff our faces. During Mardi Gras, it’s totally acceptable to wear all gold and live on the King Cake diet. In fact, there is even a shirt for that saying! The Elizbeth Chronicles created the “I’m On The King Cake Diet” tee just in time for Mardi Gras! They have a ton of other cute Mardi Gras tees too! Check them out here–> TEC tee shop
