Throw Me Somethin' {Mardi Gras Facade}

Purple, green, and gold are the colors of the Carnival season and seem to accentuate homes and buildings around New Orleans at this time of year. 

I purchased new bunting this year for the fence from the Magazine flag emporium, Brad & Dellwen Flag Store. I always think bunting on balconies and fences make for a lovely display.

Metallic tinsel and ball garlands frame the windows, and ball wreaths hang in each window. Glittered ribbons hang them well.

I am still in LOVE of the door hanger custom-made by New Orleans artist, Cynthia Kolls. I'll do a separate post of her design soon.

In New Orleans, at least we still have Mardi Gras!

  1. Oh wow, you guys really do things up right. Gorgeous.

  2. Ron I am swooning over your outdoor decor. It is beyond fabulous. Gosh your neighbors must love you and J moving in and transforming this sweet cottage. You probably have the prettiest Mardi Gras house on the block. Cynthia Koll's door hanger is beautiful. Festive and pretty. Happy New Week.

  3. Good afternoon, Ron! Love the look of the facade--it is so festive! That Cynthia Koll's door hanger is perfect for the Acorn Cottage! Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo
