Mardi Gras Party

With winter in full swing (and some of us snowed under) - few will turn down a fun celebration. While Mardi Gras is "officially" celebrated on Fat Tuesday, (Feb 16 this year) most of us can't really party on a Tuesday night - so any Fri or Sat in Feb or March will work!! Interested in throwing a Mardi Gras party, but not sure how? See a collection of helpful links below for history, decorations, great recipes, and even music. Everything you need, at your fingertips! Hope you have a ball.
