Tablescapes, Mardi Gras on the Coast

We are relaxing at the beach house this weekend,

Mardi Gras celebrations are in full swing!

Friday night one of my friends was in a Mardi Gras parade

in nearby Fairhope AL

and the Orange Beach Mystics of Pleasure Mardi Gras parade

was last night with more parades on Tuesday

in both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach~

Today I am re-sharing a Mardi Gras tablescape

so you can have some virtual Mardi Gras fun!

February on the coast means

Everything is covered in purple, gold and green!

Mardi Gras Madness, as the locals know

Means bring out the decorations, put on a show!

Crazy, tacky and over the top

It’s fabulous fun and goes on non stop!

The local favorite way to celebrate

Is to get dressed up and eat King Cake!

Music, masks, beads and moon pies

Be ready to catch something when the parade goes by!

Purple means Justice and Gold means Power

Green stands for faith, and there will be bead showers!

The masks make for mystery

Mardi Gras has a fascinating history!

    What a fun table! I love Mardi Gras in Fairhope. It’s been such a pretty weekend, and I’m sure it’s warmer in Baldwin County. Enjoy your Mardi Gras and Presidents’ Day Weekend! Question: What’s your favorite flavor of king cake?

    • It was really cold Friday and Saturday, but today has been much warmer~ don’t ever buy a King cake at Publix, they are awful, but we got a good one down here at Rouse’s, it had pineapple in it!

  7. Loads of fun, Jenna. I am so glad you are there for all the festivities! I have never seen a Mardi Gras parade!!

    I hope you had fun! We’re heading out to the Biloxi parades today. We’ll see how long my son can take it lol. He bores easily and when he was really little he was having none of it! He’ll probably get a bag full of beads & say, “Ok. Let’s go.” Like we can get the car out lol!!
