We have February carnival called as Mardi Gras party, usually 47 days before Easter every year in Louisiana.
Interesting part of Mardi Gras celebration for me is its decorations. Some important items to be decorated are:
- parade float
- team colors in parade float
Wreaths are hung on doors to greet party friends, guests and family members during Mardi Gras season.
The combination colors of wreaths are:
- metallic purple
- purple polka
Mask is one of important items in Mardi Gras celebration. Women and men use mask for at least three purposes:
- hiding their identity
- fuel their imagination
Using mask in celebration, actually come from Italian tradition since centuries ago, hence called as “carnevale.” It is just called as “Mardi Gras face mask” now days.
People also decorate their wreath with mask with include:
- ribbon trimmings
