Today, I'd like to share the parlor mantle with you.
The mantle in the parlor is always fun to decorate seasonally, and Mardi Gras is no exception. I adore the crown ribbon and bunting from Dunn and Sonnier that I used on the lower mantle.
A large reversed decoupaged plate exclusive to Hazelnut on Magazine is an elegant backdrop to the Mardi Gras collectibles.
Anne Lee Sarpy papier mache' figures are a fun touch. These figures are available through Judy at the Rink. I have collected the Zulu warrior (love that he stands in the iconic coconut), the king, and the reveler.
The vintage trophy cups hold preserved boxwood spheres topped with metal crowns.
I really like to use the mantle as a focal point seasonally. It does make an exceptional statement during the Mardi Gras season.
