Lady ML hosted a Mardi Gras themed tea for the Victorian Tea Society last July but I wanted to wait until closer to Fat Tuesday (February 28, a week from today!) to blog about it and inspire your party spirit! 🙂 NOTE: See also the January 2016 issue of Tea Time magazine for more ideas on hosting a Mardi Gras tea!This tea was special for many reasons. Firstly, we welcomed and introduced our newest member, Lady S. to the group. And secondly, former member Lady L. happened to be in town so she graced us with her company and charm. And lastly, this was the Victorian Tea Society’s 2nd visit to Marlene’s Tea & Cakes, a testament to how much we enjoyed our first visit. It was a wonderful combination of old and new friends coming together to enjoy and honor friendship.
It’s time for some Mardi Gras-inspired fascinators!
“Mardi Gras is the love of life. It is the harmonic convergence of our food, our music, our creativity, our eccentricity, our neighborhoods, and our joy of living. All at once.”
