Good morning! I decorated our breakfast room table for Mardi Gras. I confess that I really don't like the garish gold, bright green, and K&B purple colors of carnival. I actually dislike them all…..however, my family loves to celebrate, and I grin and bear it!
I started with a linen dotted table runner with Mardi Gras colored dots plus blue. Then I added some things we bought at Rouse's grocery store in New Orleans when we were visiting during Christmas. I also found some wonderful candles and holders at Pier 1 after Christmas. The greens and golds are perfect for Mardi Gras.
This candle holder and candle from Pier 1 was part of the Christmas collection, but I think it's the perfect Mardi Gras green.
The fun votives were also bought at the Pier 1 after Christmas sale.
I cheated and bought flowers from Winn Dixie! I didn't feel like making a trip to the flower market.
Mardi Gras primrose!
Until next time…
