Mardi Gras Mambo {Acorn Cottage: Mardi Gras Floor Mat}

 When I saw this mat posted on IG, I knew I had to have one for the porch this Mardi Gras season. With the float number as our address, the House of Ron & Jeff is such an appropriate choice for this year's celebration of house floats and yardi gras.




The mat was purchased from Fleurty Girl and is currently out of stock. Supporting local businesses is always a wise choice.

Mardi Gras Mambo {Krewe of Garden Party: Harmony & Camp Streets}

 Complete with neon signs, this charming home on the corner of Harmony & Camp Streets shines during the Carnival season. I love the use of the neon lights and sculpted banana leaves. The home itself is gorgeous but decorated for Mardi Gras, it is even better. And at night, the home sparkles and shines.








The neon signs are by artist, Nate Shaeffer of Big Sexy Neon (1618 Oretha Castle Haley).

Mardi Gras Mambo {House Floats: Queen Jubilee - St. Charles Avenue & Fourth Street}

 Y'all, this is my most favorite of the Mardi Gras house floats so far. This stately manner is befitting of a Queen and sits on prime real estate at St. Charles Avenue and Fourth Streets in the Garden District.

The home, entitled Queen Jubilee, is House #5, decorated through donations to the Krewe of Red Beans (Read more of this project below the photos).



The home was decorated by the Krewe of Red Beans through their "Hire a Mardi Gras Artist" project. The groups aim is to produce 40 lavishly decorated homes this season. The group has focused its energies on the plight of artists and craftsmen who'd be working to produce Carnival floats and parades.

The "Hire a Mardi Gras Artist" project combines a call for charitable donations with a lottery system. The Krewe of Red Beans is attempting to raise $10,000 per home via the GoFund online donation site. Then, from those who donate, names are placed in a "hat", and the winner gets a Mardi Gras makeover of their home. What a cool idea!
