New York City has allowed me to meet the most interesting people from around the world. I decided a Mardi Gras celebration was the perfect way to share a little piece of mine…

Masks and macarons…

I kept the menu simple: hot crab, artichoke & jalapeño dip and chicken and sausage jambalaya; both recipes from New Orleans’ Chef John Folse. A traditional king cake and some not-so-traditional (but oh-so-pretty) macarons were a must, shipped in from Sucre. Two specialty cocktails were concocted: the original Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane and my own “Hollah”peños, both served in “go cups,” a Big Easy must.

Add some brass bands, beads and beautiful guests and you’ve got yourself a good time, for sure!

My lovely best friend, Amy of Obtainable Style, graciously documented our fete, all photo credits go to her.
