Celebration of Mardi Gras

I have always been fascinated with Mardi Gras.  I like the bright colors, some of the traditions, the parades,  the little shops of the French Quarter and the masquerade balls.  Recently, I was reading about some of the symbols of Mardi Gras.  The traditional colors for it are green, gold and purple which mean Faith, Power and Justice. The masks and beads are another fun tradition. The royalty of the krewes  and the king of  Mardi Gras is represented by the crown.  I thought it would be fun  to do an invitation to Mardi Gras representing some of the symbols from it.  What added more to the fun was that The Robin's Nest carries the papers and embellishments to do it.  This is a picture of what I created.  Doesn't it put you in the party mood?  Remember Mardi Gras is next Tues., February 21st so have some fun and create a party of your own using products from The Robin's Nest!
