I Love Mardi Gras
I love Mardi Gras! I love the beads, the fun, the bright colors, the king cake and celebrating the Wise men finding the baby Jesus!
As I’ve told you before, I fell in love with Mardi Gras many years ago when we visited some friends in Biloxi.
Before then I thought it was all about beer, beads and Bourbon Street. And while for some it is, it is also a family celebration!
Of course, my decorating starts with my front door.
One of my favorite Mardi Gras decorations is the front door wreath.
Which, of course, has a crown!
Once you enter my home, to the left of the entry is the formal dining room.
In this dining room, you will find most of my Mardi Gras decor here.
Lots of color, lots of shiny and a ton of crazy fun.
I’m convinced in a former life, my BFF Roxanne was a raccoon.
You know, a lover of all things shiny!
It’s no secret that she is definitely is rubbing off on me!
I truly love the fun beads, the glittery bulbs, the boas, the alligators, and the crowns.
The fact that most of the beads were caught at parades that we have attended makes me love this table scape all the more!
The place setting this year starts with a purple placemat, followed by gold chargers and toped off with white hobnail plates.
The napkins were given a fan fold and then tucked into a gold napkin ring that is decorated with different Mardi Gras masks.
And last, but not least, you must have plenty of beads on hand for guests!
My Mardi Gras table is ready.
The only thing it needs are a few friends to enjoy a a fun evening!
I love Mardi Gras!!! Don’t you?
