It is Mardi Gras time! I am not interested in travelling to New Orleans, Mobile, Alabama or one of the other hot spots for celebrating Mardi Gras, but that doesn’t mean I have to let the occasion pass without a celebration of sorts. For us, it is time to bring out the decorations and set a fun table, whip up a King Cake and invite another couple in for dinner.
My table began by being draped in some fun Mardi Gras fabric and then I added a double layer of chargers. Mardi Gras is a fun time to gather friends and celebrate before the period of lent.
Purple wine glasses keep the regal touch going along with my fun centerpiece. While I set the table, a friend helped by filling an oversized glass ginger jar with green, purple and gold tiny ornaments and inexpensive beads. A Mardi Gras decoration picked up on sale at Pier One after the holiday last year topped the jar along with a couple of fun masks and a regal gold crown.
Each place setting was topped with diamond patterned napkins I made out of this coordinating fabric and a tiny mask ornament. Those little masks make for a fun favor for each guest as a remembrance of our fun party.
My plate stack was a square gold charger topped with a round purple charger, then a beautiful gold dinner plate purchased some time ago at Z Gallerie. I made my napkins from some great Mardi Gras patterned fabric and topped each with a tiny mask ornament. Do you celebrate or acknowledge Mardi Gras in any particular way? I would love to hear what you do! Leave me a message below, I LOVE hearing from all of my readers and always try to respond to every single one!
