JustFab.com helped kick off FNA’s first bonding event celebrating Mardi Gras on Wednesday, March 5! With the help of JustFab, FNA members were able to have the event come to life! Mardi Gras was celebrated this year on Tuesday, March 4! Traditionally Mardi Gras is about the floats, music, picnics, beads and excitement all around. Traditional Mardi Gras colors (purple, green, and gold) were playfully portrayed on the doubloons, as well as the masks.
Members were busy at work decorating their Mardi Gras mask, which is a traditional custom while celebrating the famous holiday. Each member decorated their mask while expressing their own individual style and creative zest. They were able to style their mask with an arrangement of crafting materials such as glitter, ribbons, embellishments, gems, tulle, doubloons – all the necessities of creating a fierce mask!
The atmosphere was lively with music and sweet treats provided at the event! Members seemed to have fun as they posed for pictures, socialized, and crafted their masks. There were goody gifts handed out to the FNA members which included JustFab cups, beads, and an exclusive gift of $20 going towards the first item of purchase from JustFab.com.
Near the end of the event, a contest was held among the FNA members on who had the best Mardi Gras mask! A total of 5 winners were selected and each received a $10 gift card to JustFab, courtesy of them.
Our FNA member Yolanda received the most votes for the Mardi Gras contest. Yolanda is minoring in costume design, which might have been her secret weapon in creating her winning mask. The bonding event was held at the weekly meeting times of FNA on Wednesdays from 3:00 to 4:00 in Room 329.
