    Amazing table with all of your wonderful decor. I have been trying to leave a comment on your blog lately it says Spam is blocked. Tells me to leave a URL, which I did. Then says leave an @. Then it will say I need to subscribe to emails which I have already done quite some time ago. Don’t know why it is not working for me to leave a direct comment. I would love to do so Thanks. Have a wonderful week. candlelightsupper Valerie

    Really cool decor (and poetry!) for the mother of all parties known as Mardi Gras. I will definitely be getting out the fun wine glasses I won at your giveaway last year. I like to put them on the coffee table so I can look at them, not hide them in a cabinet. I am still in Valentine mode here, till the 15th, and then I will change to MG. I was looking at Party Time a few days ago, and they have tons of fun stuff!

    I always love your poems, Jenna, and your fun parties at you house. Your painted mask is a work of art. I made a King Cake once, but I’d love to try your crescent roll one.
    Thank you for your visit to see my baking fun with one of my granddaughters. โค๏ธ

    • Thanks Ricki Jill! I tried to make a version of your Coconut cake and it was a huge flop because I was trying to get inventive. I am going to try again soon and follow your recipe, I have been craving it since I read the book! >
