It’s Fat Tuesday, let the good times roll. Mardi Gras is now in full swing. New Orleans seems to be the best place to be if you want to celebrate Mardi Gras. We have not been there, but my mom has been there and tells us it is pretty wild and crazy!
Mardi Gras colors are purple, gold, and green. People often wear masks and head pieces in these colors during the celebrations. Luckily, we happen to have our own fancy masks to wear. Bailie is pretty happy about this feathered version. We also have a lot of beads we can wear to accessorize our looks.
I’m trying on this headpiece with the feathers. The beads are tough for me to wear properly because they are too long but also are too short to wrap around my neck twice. My mind was really on the Mardi Gras treats.
For our Fat Tuesday party treats, we are going to eat some Pupcakes from SmallcakesPupcakes from Smallcakes. Mom bought some human cupcakes there recently and the owner sent us home with a few Pupcakes as a bonus. They may not be the right color, but I am pretty sure they are super yummy! The main thing for our party is to have tasty treats.
Bailie and I decorated our party table with a pretty gold glitter tablecloth, fine china, and some beads and garland. Doesn’t it look pretty. We donned our matching masks and beads when we sat at our table.
I approach new foods with care, but we all know, Bailie is not shy and will dig right in. Bailie wasted no time in shoveling the entire carrot cake Pupcake into her mouth. No manners at all, but I hear anything goes on Fat Tuesday, so go for it, sis!
Being more reserved than Bailie, I start out by gently licking my Pupcake. It does seem to taste really good.
I decided to go ahead and eat my entire Pupcake. Being the family food snob, that is saying a lot about these snacks. It sure tasted good! I would say the Pupcakes really made our Fat Tuesday celebration a success. Bailie hoped I would not want mine, but she was out of luck.
In the end, Bailie’s look really tells it all about our party! Doesn’t she look like the cat who just ate a canary? Happy Mardi Gras! Celebrate, have fun, and stay safe!
