all this talk about Mardi Gras and king cakes has me missing NOLA. so in the true spirit of New Orleans i thought i'd throw a party.
additionally i recently bought a house and people have been bugging me to have some kind of housewarming party. so again i was thinking and came up with the Mardi Gras/House-warming party.
now comes the fun part - planning the party:
between me and my dad we have a decent collection of Mardi Gras/Cajun/Zydeco/Jazz/NOLA music.
i think i have a box or bag of beads somewhere but i suppose we might have to invest in more.
what other suggestions do you have?
