Mardi Gras is coming up soon! It’s February 16th this year, so you better start planning your decor and Fat Tuesday activities! Reader Abby made this fun Mardi Gras wreath and posted it at our Facebook page. Wreaths are a dollar store decor staple, and you can whip this one up for less than five bucks and in less than fifteen minutes! And let me know what you are doing this year to celebrate Mardi Gras – I’d love to hear about your festivities, decor, parties, and food! [click here for Abby’s Mardi Gras wreath]
