It's Mardi Gras Time

Tuesday is Fat Tuesday, so I thought I would set a fun  Mardi Gras table in our Breakfast room.
As we all know the beautiful colors really make everything pop!


I started with green and gold chargers.  I then layered the different colored plates and ended up with a gold rimmed bowl on top.  The flatware is from Horchow.
The green cabbage  plates are always fun to use.





 I created the centerpiece out of a lamp shade and added a gold charger for the platform.
I then added one of our small topiaries to hang the masks on.  I also added the purple fun boa to surround the shade. It's amazing how much you can find in your own house, just by looking around.
As Liz, from Infuse With Liz says, shopping your own house.
Thank goodness for the Dollar store.  They have so many fun and inexpensive accessories.
I found the masks, beads and coins there.

I love using the pinched wheel tablecloth with a small tablecloth as a topper.  The green doesn't show up much here.

I alternated green and purple goblets.
Fun centerpiece.

Night time view.


As usual I dressed our red chairs in purple pillow cases and added the gold sashes
with  hanging beads.

Crown napkin rings fit right in with this theme, along with purple and green napkins.


Gold mercury glass candle holders with glitzy gold candles.


 King's cake

I hope you enjoy your visit.  Have fun on Fat Tuesday.

  5. What a festive table! Love the centerpiece...very creative. I always forget about doing a Mardi Gras table...then by the time it is time I have forgotten again! Maybe I could whip up a trayscape for the center of the dining room table!

  7. Bien sûr! C'est déjà le temps du mardi gras? Comme le temps passe si vite!

    Linda, with our frigid weather here, I totally forgot that Mardi Gras is here and my 32nd wedding anniversary on Thursday! I am literally in a frozen time warp!

    How lovely are your colors! Enjoy Oscar night; we are going to settle in too. HAVE A BLAST! Anita

  12. Awesome job Linda! Love the centerpiece- that's a great idea with the lamp shade. I never go to the dollar store- I swear when I go in they never have anything that interesting! The masks, and beads really make a fun party atmosphere. Love the addition of the dressed out chairs- the gold bows really spruce it up!! That last picture is really cool- love how it looks!
