Oh, you outdid yourself on this one! What unusual colors you used and your table is stunning! I hope that you have a fun "Fat Tuesday" at your house. You have certainly set the "stage" for it!!

Pretty table! We're celebrating this year -- a mardi gras progressive dinner on Sat, mardi gras treats for church on Sunday and as always, pancakes and pancakes for Shrove Tuesday (which everyone else calls mardi gras!)

The colors are wonderful! The masks are beautiful. I love those little crown votives too. I dread Lent, you know me and the fish every week thing!

Oh my your centerpiece is outstanding! I've never celebrated Mardi Gras or been to any places that do. I'm enjoying the presentations from several bloggers and getting a glimpse of how it's celebrated.

Love your colors on this table, typical Mardi Gras with extra touches that make them seem more special.

I really like Martha's idea of a "Shrove Tuesday" or Mardi Gras progressive dinner! We do that here on our cul-de-sac during the Christmas holidays, but I love the idea of extending it to Mardi Gras!

Your table looks fantastic! That dishes you used are marvelous with all that great texture!!! I also like the use of all the crowns. That's a great touch, and it really tells more of the story behind the celebration.

Gorgeous Alma! The colors capture the vibrancy of Mardi Gras perfectly! Thank you for sharing this at the party this week. It is being featured on my Facebook page and I have pinned it to the You're Gonna Love It Tuesday board on Pinterest (as well as my own All The Pretty Tables board!) :-)
