Mardi Gras {Parlor Mantle}

It is hard to believe that today is the last day of January. Where, oh where did January go?

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.
