Shrove Tuesday is a festive season marking the end of the week of the Seven Fat Days. This day precedes Ash Wednesday marking the beginning of Lent, a period of fasting. It is therefore an opportunity to celebrate and let off steam. The week of the seven fat days ends with the mardi gras which is also the occasion of all sorts of carnivals.
But no Mardi Gras without decoration! To create the atmosphere of this party in the house, I propose 4 tips for the decor:
1- The colors: they are green, purple and gold. So you can choose your confetti, streamers, balloons and other paper decorations in these tones.
2- Pearls: they are representative of Mardi Gras. Abuse them as decorations as on your costumes. Arrange some on the table and serving dishes.
3- The decor: Decorate your interior with some traditional Mardi Gras characters, such as the jester, the dragon, the fairies and other fantastic creatures. Add bright, colorful moods (you can, for example, replace traditional bulbs with colored bulbs), and you can also light a few candles here and there.
4- The costumes: Mardi Gras is also the day of the carnivals, so this day is costumed. You can indulge in all the fantasies, wear masks, etc …
