Almost a Mardi Gras Table, but Not Quite
I am of the mind set that a hostess can't have too many feathers, beads, or masks on a Mardi Gras table.
As it turns out, I didn't watch for things during the year and I had to buy most of the Mardi Gras thingies that you see here. So the placemats, hat and beads are new (and purchased at full price - how can plastic beads cost that much??). I wanted lots more beads and some feathery masks, but couldn't bring myself to buy more. And the centerpiece needs purple and gold and green sparkly things coming out of it.
You can bet I'll watch the sales on Wednesday in anticipation of next year's table. Well, at least I honestly like the placemats, Mardi Gras or no Mardi Gras.
I made the candle shades and little cardboard crowns.
You've seen the same candle holders before, only they've been a dark bronze or silver. This is their first outing in gold.
Next time there'll be napkin rings and place cards. And they'll be Mardi Gras Gaudy.
Aren't those the wimpiest beads you've ever seen?
I've got to face it. This table really isn't ready for prime time.
