A couple of years ago, I shared our Mardi Gras celebration tablescape.
Mardi Gras celebrations have begun, so I'm re-sharing this in case you need ideas for a wild and crazy celebration.
If you want to get really wild, you can put n a mask.
I used an etched glass plate 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. Yep, I used two chargers. After all, Mardi Gras is a season of excess. The purple bordered dinner plates are Snowflake by Noble Excellence.
The wine stems have a slight gold tint, and the swirls make me think of celebrations. Each water goblet is a different jewel color.
The fleur de lis tassels are Christmas ornaments. I bought a box of these at an estate sale one time, but I've never used them for Christmas décor. I used them to secure the gold striped napkins, and guests could take them home for their Christmas tree (or their Mardi Gras celebration).
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.
At our Mardi Gras table, guests don't need to worry about finding the baby in the King Cake. I want us all to have good luck, so we can all find a baby at the base of my centerpiece.
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!)
Thank you for visiting our Mardi Gras celebration.
I'm partying with Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
