The Fleur de Lis has traditionally been used to represent French Royalty, and it is said to signify “perfection, light, and life”. A symbol of New Orleans since its birth, it has come to mean inspiration to Louisianan locals. These gems are sure to bring a sense of royalty and life to any room.//German Silver Chair from THE BRASS BED//Mariposa Fleur Napkin Box from HUTCH & FIG
The origins of Mardi Gras can be traced to medieval Europe to the French House of the Bourbons. Jewelers used delicate methods involving precise workmanship intending to create intricate ornamentation. Denver trendsetters will love these signature pieces blending various materials with crystals and semi precious stones from A LINE BOUTIQUE.
We cannot get enough Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold. A colorful wall decal, lively dress and cake stand filled with delectable treats (maybe even a King Cake?), personify fun and make for an entertaining fete.//Blik-Rose-Insecta Wall Decal from MOD LIVIN’//The Tea Collection from THE NEST//Meri Meri Cake Stand from THE PAPER LADY
