Laissez les bon temps rouler… On the Mantle {Mardi Gras 2014}

 

Sing it! It’s Mardi Gras time…..

I wanted to start my Mardi Gras posts with the facade but the weather will not cooperate. I am waiting for a sunny, not so windy day to take outdoor photos. I hope you will not mind.

On the parlor mantle, I used a ball garland in the signature colors of purple, green, and gold. Harlequin-designed bows are tied loosely to each corner.

On the bottom shelf, I filled my English biscuit barrel with plumes. Two of my Lorraine Gendron parade pieces fill the middle. A Japanese Quince Seda France candle in a crown holder completes the vignette.

Atop, I filled two more biscuit barrels with metallic shreds.

The parlor mantle is ready to greet all the Mardi Gras revelers who visit the house on Perrier.

I hope you will join me in my 2014 Mardi Gras decorated home tour.

  11. I think I must have the Mardi Gras fleur de lis flex cups. And I promise to use them for every holiday, including our St. Pat's open house. (Will you guys make it this year? We're only a few blocks from Gary!)

  16. I'm back Ron! Oh, your mantel is just gorgeous and looks so very festive with all of your Mardi Gras decorations on it! I'm sure your party will be a fun success. I live on Galveston island and we celebrate Mardi Gras too. Although I've never decorated for it. You're changing my tiny mind! ;)
