Mardi Gras – Christmas in July Style

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

Mardi Gras is a wonderful festival of good times and even better food! It is a Holiday in many regions of the world, but in the United States it is only officially celebrated in Louisiana (New Orleans). It is celebrated February 17th!

I asked many CIJ members if they had any masks, costumes, hats or anything else to celebrate this festive holiday!

Noel of MinkCouture says:

This hand knitted fascinator not only features the Mardi Gras colors, but a crown and 3 hand-made tiny beaded necklaces!


Connie Lee of Bungalow42  states:

Laissez les bons temps rouler! (“Let the good times roll”)


Julie Siomacco of SouthernCharmWreaths:

Shows me her love of the holiday!


Sue and Misty of shabbyshopgirls tells me:

We have these things that are for Mardi Gras and New Orleans!!
Start your Mardi Gras celebrations with these wonderful items to kick off the festivities!


CottageCrafts of CottageCraftsOnline explains:

Here is a ribbon especially for Mardi Gras


Marjorie Scenna of mscenna said:

Wine is great for celebrating and this ornament features a recycled wine cork with beads and a fleur de lis charm, perfect for Mardi Gras!


Betty Travell of LadySnooks:

Lets me know of her love of the festive time!


Susan Fowler of SSFDesigns:

Shows me what a party frock looks like!


When Mardi Gras comes around you will be ready for it with all these festive goods!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
