Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

Being part Cajun, we couldn't let the opportunity go by without sharing some incredibly cute "Let the Good Times Roll" Mardi Gras party tips, just in time for you last-minute party planners. The celebrations have begun and will culminate this week through next Tuesday, FAT Tuesday, March yes, you still have time to purchase a few more goodies in time for this weekend when its time to 'throw me somethin' Mr!!!!! You can't really do Mardi Gras without the following must-haves and in the spirit of Cajun Country we thought we'd oblige you....
  • beads, beads, and more beads
  • feathers
  • dabloons
  • anything purple, green, and gold
  • king cake
  • great food
  • great music
  • festive beverages (and yes, non-alcoholic is just fine!)
Phyllis Hoffman with Celebrations created a fabulous spread in her Celebrate Winter 2010 mag and we love every bit of it! She shares incredibly creative ways to infuse the rich Mardi Gras (purple, green, and gold) color scheme without breaking your bank! Yes, it's really just that simple! Not only does she feature a great recipe for her Big Easy King Cake (which is a must-have for anything Cajun), but she also even shows how to whip up a festive floral arrangement out of a couple of party hats, party horns, and fleurs from your corner market. This idea can truly be extended for any other upcoming holiday as well...beit St. Patty's Day or even the 4th of July! The opportunities are've just gotta be creative and ready to "Let the Good Times Roll!"
