Happy Mardi Gras, everyone!
Carnival season is about to kick in here in south Louisiana and this week's tablescape highlights the purple, gold, and green colors that signify that special time of the year..... People tend to let the good times roll and you never quite know what sort of sights you'll see along the parade route. I used my new Lumix camera to shoot these pics..... Still learning how to use it.... I ask you, why in the world would someone want face recognition on a camera????
What a shame that I can't locate any Mardi Gras dishes! I looked, I really did! Mardi Gras is a gaudy, bawdy kind of holiday so get prepared for some serious BLING.
I scooped up those adorable gold glittered crowns at the After-Christmas sale at Louisiana Nursery Outlet. I used a couple of them on Mardi Gras wreaths and sure wish I'd bought more.
Don't you just love the netting?
I originally had two sweet jeweled crowns in the apothecary jars on each end of the table but used them on a wreath for my mom's door..... Bless her heart, she loves the decorations I bring over to her assisted living apartment. There's one thing about having a failing memory; you can enjoy the thrill of something new over and over again....
didn't do such a good job of it, did I? :)
Linking up with Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday..... Drop in and pay her a visit for some awesome eye candy.
