    I don’t know if I’ll have time to do a Mardi Gras post but I am enjoying yours. I do have a tiara from my birthday party and a bottle of wine. I think I’ll just put the tiara on and drink the wine!

  3. Fabulous table, and fun to see your friend Alex’s table. Looks like good recipes, will be checking those out.

    What fun tables! Those crown plates are so cute. I would love to be sitting in NO eating a muffaletta, they taste so much better than what I make!

  6. What fun, Jenna! Love your friend’s table! Enjoy the celebration!!

  7. Mary says:

    Happy Fat Tuesday Jenna, I had to chuckle at Sandra’s comment! Love your round-up and friend’s festive table! We’re still drowning our sorrows over the Super Bowl 🙂

  8. How festive and fun both tables are. I just love the colors for Mardi Gras.. I enjoyed your post and am taking away some wonderful ideas from your creations.

    Very pretty Mardi Gras tablescape! Thank you so much for sharing the cake recipe I will have to try it again using more prep on my pan. I love your cute pan! I also love the little crowns you have in your setting too.
