Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!

A little festivity never hurt anyone! Add some fun to your life with a glitzy Mardi Gras table.
Home Goods is where I found this pretty gold cake pedestal.  The gold goblets are from Zgallerie. The purple compotes are from Walmart.

In the Mardi Gras colors, purple represents justice, green represents faith, and gold represents power.

Gotta love this dancing King Jester.
I found him at Pier1.
Rich bold colors of gold, purple and green.
The traditional Mardi Gras song is La Danse de Mardi Gras.
Gold chargers with pretty scalloped plates are used on this table.  The gold goblets hold the the napkins.  Purple goblets for water.
I found the purple prism candle holders at Zgallerie.
Gotta have some King cake!
There some parties I am sharing with:

  12. We lived in Destrehan Louisiana for 2 years. It was just a short drive to New Orleans. We thoroughly enjoyed the parades, food and decorations, now of course we attended the family friendly events��
    Your table is beautiful Linda and truly captures the energy, honor and traditions of Marci Gras.

  13. Hi Linda, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog!
    Your Mardi Gras table is quite impressive. I like that you have been staying with the traditional Mardi Gras colors purple, green, and gold. They certainly make for a stunning table setting. Nothing understated here, but going all the way out!
    I just want to let you know that I find your pop ups a little too aggressive. They really did interfere with the pleasure of reading your blog. Just my two cents!
    Warm regards,

  14. We were in New Orleans and got a little taste of Mardi Gras. The jester is adorable Linda! We're ready to celebrate at our local wineries today :-)

  15. I love every piece of this beautiful table full of rich colors.. love the gold and purples.. great post thanks for sharing with love Janice
