LET'S PARTY-MARDI GRAS TABLESCAPE

MARDI GRAS TABLE

A couple of years ago, I shared our Mardi Gras celebration tablescape.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 2

Mardi Gras celebrations have begun, so I'm re-sharing this in case you need ideas for a wild and crazy celebration. 

MASK 1-tile

If you want to get really wild, you can put n a mask.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 4

I used an etched glass plate to protect the dinner plate from glitter and feathers on the masks.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 5

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.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 7

The wine stems have a slight gold tint, and the swirls make me think of celebrations. Each water goblet is a different jewel color.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 8


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 d├ęcor. I used them to secure the gold striped napkins, and guests could take them home for their Christmas tree (or their Mardi Gras celebration). 

MARDI GRAS TABLE 6

 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.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 9

A "Nawlins" umbrella is secured in a hurricane with a lot of Mardi Gras beads.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 11

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.

MARDI GRAS TABLE 10

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!)
