Around The World Dates: New Orleans & Mardi Gras

Home » CELEBRATE » Party Planning » Around The World Dates: New Orleans & Mardi Gras

Allow me to take you back to the gift I created for my husband’s 40th BirthdayAround the World: A Year of Dates! This past Saturday was the first of our date nights, and the destination was New Orleans!

The first thing that springs to mind when I think of New Orleans is Mardi Gras!! So, a little early, granted, but that’s what I did – I brought Mardi Gras to our home in England ^_^

Around The World Date Night

Here is a sneak peek of the yummy food I cooked and the crafts that we did…here’s what’s coming up:

Visa Stamped Passport!

We watched Easy Rider – a classic movie which was the first to come up when I searched online for “Mardi Gras Movies”! Weird, and quite sad at the end. And a young Jack Nicholson is looking mighty hot I might add :P

We also watched Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, which was a great film – a nod to the old school Disney films, and I shed a tear (as always!)

I look forward to sharing these recipes and ideas with you in the coming week! Stay tuned!
