    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!

    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!
