Happy Mardi Gras 2017

mardi gras for blog-- intro

Hi Everyone,

Happy Mardi Gras 2017 !

from DishingwithDiane.com


This year Mardi Gras seemed to sneak up on me.

So while I am busy making my “Lasagna di Carnevale” for the occasion, 

here are a few photos from my Mardi Gras (Feb 17, 2015) post.

If you want to read the entire original post and view the photos, just enter “Mardi Gras” in the search box in the right column.

I’ll be back soon with a new tablescape and more recipes!

In my house, I set the table in the Mardi Gras colors.

Purple for Justice,

Green for Faith and

Gold for Power

If you don’t want to order a King Cake and want something you can do with the kids, I saw this on Pinterest and thought this would be a great project.

You can make or buy cupcakes, some white frosting and colored sugar (Wilton brand colored sugar is great and it is sold at Michael’s Arts & Crafts or Party City ) and create your own

Mardi Gras designed cupcakes.
