On February 21st this year, people around the world will be celebrating Mardi Gras with parties and parades. Nowhere will the celebration be happier than in New Orleans’ French Quarter. You can join in the celebration with Mardi Gras decorative ceiling tiles and Fleur de Lis medallions.
Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday, is a period of feasting, partying, and indulgence that comes right before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the somber period of Lent.
Now you can join in the festivities when you install beautiful French Quarter decorative tin ceiling tiles, Mini Fleur de Lis decorative ceiling tiles, and Fleur de Lis medallions.
Floating Along on the Bayou
On the night of February 21st, krewes and their kings from all over the Crescent City will drive their festive floats down Bourbon Street to the strains of Dixieland jazz and zydeco, dancing and tossing colorful strands of beads and trinkets to the eager throngs of celebrants.
These French Quarter decorative tin ceiling tiles and medallions would add an extra touch of sparkle to any float in the procession. Order them custom painted in the traditional purple, green, and gold, or paint them yourself—it’s easy to do.
Festive Fleurs de Lis
If you can’t travel to Cajun country this year, you can still join in the festivities with one of our beautiful fleur-de-lis decorated ceiling tiles. The three points of the fleur-de-lis, or lily flower, symbolize the French revolutionaries’ cry of “Liberty, fraternity, and equality!” and are traditionally associated with France.
The large French population of New Orleans makes these tiles a perfect fit for Mardi Gras or any time.
We have several items decorated with this inspirational emblem, including the Mini Fleur de Lis and the Detailed Fleur de Lis as well as Fleur de Lis medallions.
The Fleur de Lis medallion was designed to be used as a filler for irregularly shaped ceilings, but it also make a perfect photo background or backsplash for your bathroom or kitchen. Chop up some bell peppers, onions, and celery; toss in plenty of garlic, andouille sausage, sliced okra, and hot red pepper sauce; and boil up a big pot of zesty jambalaya, juicy crawfish, and savory red beans and rice. Wash it all down with some ice cold beer, and you and your guests will feel transported to the shores of Lake Ponchatrain.
These tiles would look great in any room in any location from small farm houses to antebellum mansions to grand estates.
So get ready to indulge yourself and your friends this Mardi Gras with French Quarter and Mini Fleur de Lis decorative tin ceiling tiles and Fleur de Lis medallions and you’ll have a ragin’ Cajun time—I guar-an-tee!
