Louisiana is a unique state but our cuisine is the BEST in the world! Tony Chacheres, Tabasco sauce, Zapps potato chips, Abita and of course CRAWFISH!
Using a pallet as the backdrop, mason jars were hung and filled with colorful candies accented with a swampy net and Spanish moss, plastic crabs and crawfish. A fabulous rag garland using the most cheerful and festive of fabrics, including stripes decorated the front of the table.
An impossible to find B-52 model is proudly displayed on the side, as well as an Eagle bust next to the flowers to celebrate and honor our local B-52 community and MY HUBBIE!
The party printables and hand-painted platter with crabs, shrimp and crawfish complimented the Louisiana theme. Galvanized pails held the corn and potatoes, the traditional side items for a crawfish boil.
The “Clean-up Station” was made from a clearance shelf from Hobby Lobby, spray painted with white epoxy. It held a paper towel roll, as well as ice-cold washcloths and lemons for cleaning spicy hands.
Blue plastic hamburger containers worked perfectly for individual helpings of Crawfish, and newspaper lining has long been considered the best way to contain the mess.
Add some colorful lanterns, a Target tablecloth, and several dollar-bin finds – and you have a Louisiana Labor Day!
