Loved the book I hope this becomes a tradition to continue to have house floats. I also hope to have my home in this book one day.
Everyone took turns reading the book at Christmas. A great momento for current and former New Orleanians.
The books were well designed and produced. I was really please with the copy that I kept for our coffee table and believe that the copy that I am giving to a family as a gift well be recieved and enjoyed in the same manner.
Due to COVID-19, we here in New Orleans did not celebrate Mardi Gras in the usual manner in 2021, with parades and house parties. But many people had "House Floats", or decorated front yards and porches. These were as close as we, as a city, could come to a normal holiday. Some of these were exceptionally inventive and beautifully carried out. A book of photos, much admired by my husband and family, of these homes' decorations was available from Pediment Publishing. I decided to order a copy as a Christmas gift for my husband. I found the book online, paid for it online, and it was here in a matter of days, insuring that I would be able to give it to him on Christmas morning. Thank you, Pediment!
