I could not resist taking this box of colourful kitschness home with me from the catering supplies store last week!
To add some gay garnish to the mojitos (delicious!) that Ms Carpet and her A-Man offered to make at our Mardi Gras Parade-viewing party on Saturday evening.
But I didn't think we were going to drink 144 cocktails in one night.
So I made some gay garlands (used 72 of them)...
...and "flags" for the food (photos of them on the food platters coming soon).
And we still had loads left because we gave up putting them in the mojito glasses as people were complaining about getting their eyes poked. Haha.
