Flower Power {Carnival Sculpture}


Remember yesterday’s post on the Magazine Street Blues Festival? You know I could not leave with one but two carnival flowers by art vendor Carnival Sculpture.


I could not wait to get them home as I knew exactly where they would go. I hung each on the large post in the open area at the rear of the house. I converted the large post into a message center simply with chalkboard paint.


I purchased the large red bloom and a smaller green one. I am ordering another larger yellow one with leaves to add to an open space atop the bar in the kitchen.

I have wanted one of these large blooms since dining at the home of Bryan Batt (of Mad Men and Hazelnut fame) and Tom Cianfichi. Bryan has a beautiful one that fell off a parade float years ago. It hung prominently in his dining room, and I was in love with it as soon as I saw it. You see, if you love Mardi Gras like I do, these blooms adorn the fancier floats in the great traditional parades.

Here is Bryan Batt’s one hanging his his former dining room:

Here are my two hanging on the chalkboard post:


Brian Bush, the artist, creates wonderful paper sculptures. You can check out his amazing work on his facebook page: click HERE!


I love his flowers, but this poboy is amazing too!

Carnival Sculptures, y’all!


  1. I knew you would buy a green and a red one! Those are amazing, and that poboy looks good enough to eat! I'm assuming that the Christmas decorations are coming along--can't wait to see them! Have a great day! :)

  2. Those are gorgeous and perfect on the chalkboard wall!

    hugs, Linda

  3. Could you just not love to death that po boy hanging in just the right place? Like my future outdoor kitchen..over the grill!

  4. Ron, those flowers are just gorgeous! You always find the best accents!

  5. Those flowers are amazing! I wonder how long it takes to create each one?
    I dunno about a giant po' boy, though!

  6. I think I said it yesterday but I will say it again- Those flowers are AMAZING. I just love them...and the po-boy ain't bad either!;>) xo Diana
