Party Recap

Last year I brought back our Mardi Gras party, carefully converted for kids. No hurricanes, but we kept the beads and dancing. I made my own King Cakes since I was dealing with the ubiquitous egg allergy. Everyone had a great time despite a bit of rain.

We had the kids come in their leftover Halloween costumes, with bikes and scooters. We had supplies for anyone who wanted to add decorations - balloons, streamers, feathers, etc. Then the kids all paraded around our neighborhood. It worked really well for us because we could drive Amanda in the golf cart.

    Hi Sallie, You look like a wonderful family! I wanted to let you know I replied to your questions on my Teen Beach Movie party. I hit reply and it sent me back to the comment section so that's where I posted the response. I'll have to give the Mardi Gras Party some thought...good use of all those costumes! Lisa
