Mardi Gras Gala


Last night our Boys and Girls club had a Mardi Gras gala.  It was a beautiful night and I had so much fun! I was on the committee that planned it.  The super talented art teachers at the club spent weeks making beautiful decorations and last  week we spent a few nights decorating    The night turned out better than I could have imagined.  Everyone had a great time and the gym was completely transformed .   

For the event the lights were turned off  but since I set up I got a few pictures of the venue before the event.  We tied gold fabric around the chairs.  I thought that was a nice touch and made them really sparkle.  



We decorated with tons of ferns and moss.  We wanted people to feel like they were in the French Quarter.

Following Mardi Gras tradition, we had a queen and king cake and crowned the winners who had the babies in their piece of cake.


We had a fun photo booth set up.  Here I am with our planning committee in our masks.


We got a lot of use out of the photo booth :-)


It was a fun event!!  I had to leave at 9 to go home and get some rest because bright and early (3:45 early 😬) I left to go to the airport this morning  to meet my Dad, sister and Brock at Disney!
