"Mardi Gras on da Bayou" was the theme for this the Krewe of Dionysos' Mardi Gras Bal. (no that is how they spelled Ball, Bal?)
We were invited to attend our second Mardi Gras Ball. Our first was last year in Alexandria, LA. This year we attended one in Natchitoches, LA. You really can't say no and shouldn't say no, when invited to one of these extremely, amazing events.
We were guests of Queen Hernandez and it was great to be a part of it all.
It took seven hours to decorate the Queen's tables. With about eight of us working on them.
Alligators were a huge theme presence. It will take me several posts to show off all the creativity at this party for about 500 or so guests.
The Queen wanted elegance and beauty for her 28 guests. So we decided upon white, silver, gold and touches of pinks and purples. But the main color to use needed to be white.
And this is just the Queen's table. Wait to you see more of the great decorations. I will have an entire post on just chair decorations.
Flowers we used were roses, hydrangea, alstromoeria, daisies, pom mums and babies breath. With tons of magnolia leaves and rhinestone vintage garlands.
More to come...
