Mardi Gras Mini Banners {2013}


Over the weekend, J & I also browsed at Magazine Street fave, The Shops at 2011.

I found these great mini banners on long, narrow sticks. One banner reads, “Nouvelle Orleans” and the other “NOLA”. I just knew they would be a perfect addition to my jesters and wooden creations by Lorraine Gendron.

The first mini banner, “Nouvelle Orleans”, I added to the hand of the jester on my stair parlor table. I love how it is written in calligraphy (so classic).

The second banner, “NOLA”, I added to the wooden jester on the lower mantle in the parlor. All I had to do was take an ice pick, puncture a small hole in the hand of the jester, and insert the banner’s stick. It fits perfectly.

These are fun and add a touch of New Orleans to the Mardi Gras decor.

Mini Banners with a NOLA touch, y’all!


  1. Those are great! So much fun seeing your decorations. I was telling my hubby about them and he was looking at me fearfully to make sure I wasn't planning on decorating the entire house for Mardi Gras! Lol ;)

  2. What a great touch to your already beautiful decorations! Loving the "virtual" tour. Have a great day! <3

  3. You do find the most amazing little touches that just make your already awesome decor even more awesome!

  4. I absolutely ♥ your blog and everything Louisiana... of course I live in La. as well, lol. I think I have visited your blog everyday since I found it, but can't remember if I have left a comment yet. Looking forward to many more visits. Keep up the great decorating and sharing so much inspiration!

  5. Hi Ron, Your decorations are wonderful! I bet Mardi Gras is a fabulous time to live in New Orleans. Have fun!

  7. Really, really cute, Ron. It is good to see that you are feeling better and having some fun again- How you doing with the no cocktail thing? xo Diana

    1. I am doing well. I actually had ONE cocktail last night, my first since New Year's Eve! My doctor gave me permission to have or two every now and then. MODERATION!!!! LOL. xo
