Fat Tuesday Mantel

I left the pine trees on the mantel from my fall and Christmas mantels since they looked good for winter. Then I added all things purple, gold and green.  Beads, crowns, fleur de lis and a fun jester.


The hand painted ceramic ball is one of my favorite things.


The bright glitter enhanced purple, gold and green floral pics were found at Michael's after Christmas 90 percent off table. 



Pier One had these great mask Christmas ornaments on sale (perfect) and were more perfect for Mardi Gras decorations.


I grabbed anything sparkly and stuck it in anywhere I could find a space.


The large crown is a new purchase from our weekend in Natchitoches, Louisiana.



The Wisteria vintage looking glittery rhinestone garland finished off the trees.



Mr. Jester looks quite content.  This coming Tuesday is Fat Tuesday this year.  Then lent begins the day after on Ash Wednesday.  Lent, a wonderful time for reflection and prayer during the 40 day wait for Easter Sunday! 


Happy Mardi Gras y'all!
