Decorating for Mardi Gras



Today I replaced all the hearts and lovebirds with Mardi Gras decorations.  I hated for my Fourteen Days of Love to end, and I appreciate y'all's positive comments about it!

I am not crazy about the Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold.  I decided to go with a very neutral centerpiece in the breakfast room so it would not compete with the place mats and linens.

The Mardi Gras print is from my sister in law's company, M & L Nostalgia.  I think the pillow, coasters, and table runner are all so, so cute.

This has been a busy week with several meetings and appointments.  I cannot wait until this afternoon when I get to blog jog with no interruptions.  I might even turn off my phone!

How is your week going?


Until next time...

Blessings!

  3. Your 14 Days of Love was brilliant!! I'm sad it's over too!!!

    We don't celebrate Mardi Gras at all in England so it'd fascinating to see what you do!!
