After eight years there, we moved to Texas, and our area doesn't really celebrate Mardi Gras. But I have wanted to set a Mardi Gras table and finally did so this year. I was stymied in the past by a lack of purple in my tablescaping supplies, but a recent trip to Sur la Table in Austin remedied that. Just inside the front door, in a Final Clearance basket, was a set of purple napkins marked at 50% off the lowest marked price. I was able to shop the house for everything else.
Now, this table is quite tame by Mardi Gras standards. But by The Dull and the Dutiful standards, it is highly festive!
My vintage Anchor Hocking "Burple" glasses have proven to be wonderfully versatile and provided the perfect green.
