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!

  1. Good morning, Ron! WOW--all I can say is WOW! I'm with you--this is hands down my favorite so far! It absolutely takes my breath away--so classy and regal! Keep those house floats coming! Have a great day! xoxo

  2. I love this one and 6016 St Charles so far the best. Very cool to honor the frontline healthcare workers, but this house is so gorgeous!

  3. Wow that is really creative! Love the big flowers, beads and the tribute to the doctors and nurses!

  4. That is so pretty. It is wonderful to see how out of the misery of the pandemic so many people and organizations have risen to the aid of others. Thank you for sharing these with us!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
