Mardi Gras! (Yes, we know it's only September, BUT..)

We are in love with this year's invitation

We are in love with this year's invitation

We just had one of our first meetings to help organize Hattie's Annual Mardi Gras party and are thrilled to share some of the details with you. We've been going to this party for years as it has always been the perfect excuse to get out and have some fun  when we are deep into the winter doldrums.

As we were brainstorming sponsorships and silent auction items yesterday, the idea of having a Candy Bar came up and it peaked our interest. And we don't mean Candy Bar like the food, we mean a Bar.. with candy flavored vodka. After some discussion, Jenny and I decided we would be in charge of organizing the Candy Bar and to say we're excited would be an understatement. It will be this year's complimentary drink for every guest who arrives and we are hard at work 'researching' which vodka's we will choose:) This year's Mardi Gras will be January 17th at the Canfield Casino, we're about to put it on our calendar and you should too!

But more importantly, Beth and Jasper Alexander and the crew at Hattie's do a phenomenal job running the event and it raises some serious money for local non-profits. This year, Jake's Help from Heaven will be the recipient of the fund's raised. If you aren't familiar with the Straughter Family or JHFH , stay tuned - we will be introducing them in moments!
