Mardi Gras

Celebrate A First Baby New Orleans Style

Good friends of mine, recently relocated to our area from New Orleans were about to have their first baby girl. What better way to throw a baby shower than with a fun Mardi Gras twist? I wanted the party to show the lovely couple's flair for sophistication, so I chose the traditional colors but used elegant place settings of gold plated china, golden chargers and glass wear accented with festive beads of color! The party was a wonderful hit and the shrimp gumbo to die for! I made the 3 tiered lemon cake to mimic a king cake that hides the baby inside, except here, our little girl takes center stage on the cake, as she sure did upon her arrival! Enjoy my pre-party pics! As always, I hope I can inspire your creativity!
