Mardi Gras Tablescape

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I hate years when Easter comes early because that means that Mardi Gras is early, and it's close to Valentine's Day.  Our dining room is decorated for Valentine's and our kitchen is decorated for Mardi Gras.

Here is our breakfast room table.  We're having gumbo and King Cake for dinner  :D

Daisies, asters, tulips, goldenrod, and eucalyptus 

Mardi Gras Runner and Coasters:  Lundy Ryan Designs, New Orleans
Bowls:  Biscuit @ Anthropologie
Gold napkins and napkin rings:  Pier 1
Purple napkins:  English Ivey, Birmingham
Glasses:  Neiman Marcus
Medium vase:  Dandy small vase by MacKenzie-Childs
Tiny Vase:  Dena at Christine's, Mountain Brook, AL
Square cake plate:  Aplico, WIlliams-Sonoma
Peacock ribbon:  Michael's

Have you decorated for Mardi Gras yet?

Until next time...

  5. I haven't...but I sure love the Mardi Gras beads! they are fun and I have a few of those!

  6. Love your runner for your Mardi Gras table Ricki Jill! I hadn't even thought about how close it was to Valentine's Day this year! Enjoy your King Cake :)

  7. Back in the old days. BK. Before Kids, I did a whole Mardi Gras dinner party with cajun music and everything! It was awesome! I need to do that again.

  8. What can I say but purple I love purple one of my favourite colours so think this is very pretty.......not sure why it is called a Mardi Gras Tablescape but not important I still love it

  9. So pretty! I love the colors of Mardi Gras. I miss being in the Louisiana area around Mardi Gras ~ used to be there a lot when the guy I was dating had that territory. So much fun! The food and the people made it better.


  10. Oh dear I haven't put the snowmen away, but have considered getting out the hearts!!

  11. The table looks beautiful. So colorful and perfect for mardi gras.
