Whenever I think about Mardi Gras, I immediately think of New Orleans and its Mardi Gras parades. New Orleans is world famous for Mardi Gras celebrations. Mardi Gras season takes place in the weeks before Easter and is basically all about partying as much as you can before Lent begins. That’s about as much as I know about Mardi Gras — you’ll have to look it up to learn more! #MardiGrasIdeas #HomeMattersParty
This week’s mini roundup is all about New Orleans, Mardi Gras and food! The recipes are perfect for a Mardi Gras party – especially the King Cake! I have a friend from New Orleans whose mom would bake a King Cake every year during Mardi Gras. She would follow a King Cake tradition by baking a small toy baby in the cake. (I know, that sounds weird but it is the tradition!) Whoever finds the toy in their cake slice will have good luck!

Home Matters Linky Party Guidelines:
We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.
- Please link up no more than THREE posts each week–try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)
- Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
- Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
- We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
- We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
- On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)
With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!Join the celebration with fun and fabulous Mardi Gras ideas. Get your Fat Tuesday on! Plus link up at Home Matters with recipes, DIY, crafts, decor. #MardiGrasIdeas #HomeMattersParty Click To Tweet
