These are for Jen who is from Bayou Quilts here on our list. She is in Lousiana, one of my favourite places in the world. I was telling here we had a mardi gras party here in the UK, a few years ago and that I would post some pics for her of the party.
I made some crawfish ettouffee, red beans and rice also a king cake and decorated the whole house and outside with bunting ... that I of course had to sew as I could not find the right colours anywhere here at the costume stores. Sooooo one evening of my man cutting out purple, yellow and green plastic table cloths, in a triangle, then me sewing this onto some ribbon, phew that took about 5 or 6 hours ... (just a guess). This was from the front of the house at the road and all the way inside everywhere.
We had drinks in fish bowls, new clean ones of course and filled them up with various drinks (one specialty was hurricanes.) In other glasses they got plastic fish ect to go into their drinks.
A great time was had by all.
