Mardi Gras comes to my house!

My love for everything Louisiana and everyone in Louisiana can shine bright during Mardi Gras.  I am even planning a Mardi Gras dinner next month.  But have started decorating now...


Mr. Jester hiding in the feather boa.  Thanks Jill


Even the mantel got in on the fun.



A little side table with silver stacked trays and gobs of beads.  Overabundance screams Mardi Gras, don't you think.


Finally the dining room table.  I haven't changed out the plates yet, I have purple and green chargers somewhere....



I feel like royalty when I use this glass, thanks Barbara.




Most of these trinkets were gifts, beads grabbed from parades!  I have never been to New Orleans Mardi Gras.  Kind of always scared me a little.  But I do embrace the holiday.  Wish my state shut down for a couple days for Fat Tuesday.  March 8th this year!

Have you ever been?

  8. Growing up on the MS Gulf Coast, I spent many Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Fun, fun, fun, and yes, a little scary. Great people watching :) Your decor looks great. I love that mask with the music notes on it....very cool. Have fun with you dinner. Are you serving traditional N.O. cuisine? YUM!!!!
