DiamondJack's Crown Ballroom was the place to be for Mardi Gras lovers this weekend. Saturday night (Jan. 11) was the 15th anniversary for the Krewe de les Femmes Mystique, and the ladies blew it out of the water!

A lot of thought and preparations went into the décor and costumes and it showed. My mouth dropped as Captain Hedy Hebert walked out first decked out in silver and pink. What a costume!

The rest of the royalty looked just as amazing, but I think everyone was shocked when Queen Stephanie Holoubek was presented. AMAZING!

Thanks so much to the “Lady of Art” Michelle Parkerson for inviting me to sit at her table. I had a night that I’ll never forget.
