Our table is ready for a Mardi Gras celebration.
My sister-in-law, Brenda (who obviously knows me well) bought a box of Mardi Gras masks at a yard sale for me.
So, I had a mask for each place setting.
The only purpose of this etched glass plate was to protect the dinner plate from glitter and feathers on the masks.
Place settings started with bright green ruffle-edged, metal chargers. On top of those, I used my clear glass, gold beaded chargers. The dinner plates are Snowflake by Noble Excellence (there are bowls with snowflakes on them that go with these plates, which I assume is the reason for the name of the plates.)
The wine stems have a slight gold tint, and the swirls remind me of a celebration. Water goblets are in different jewel tones.
I used fleur de lis tassels to secure the gold striped napkins and they also serve as a take-home favor for guests.
Bread plates depict different French operas. The only mark on them is a circle with the letters "PV" in the middle. I found these plates at an estate sale a couple of years ago.
A "Nawlins" umbrella is secured in a hurricane with a lot of Mardi Gras beads (another find by my sister-in-law at the yard sale).
I don't like the idea of only one person having good luck because they find the baby in the King Cake, so at the base of the hurricane, I have a baby for each guest.
The centerpiece is on a footed gold, glass beaded server, which is on top of a sequined vest from my closet! (Nothing is safe from my tablescaping escapades!)
Mardi Gras masks rest at each end of the centerpiece.
There is so much sunlight in our sun room that I always have a hard time taking pictures in there, but the reflection from snow on the ground made it even more difficult!
Thank you for stopping by. laurie
