Here are some of our favorite Pinterest finds inspired by our love of NOLA & Mardi Gras. This week we’re dreaming of the music & magic that takes place every February in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. We’re inspired by all of the color, the energy, the masks, the musicians, and more!
Love the idea of being surrounded by the talented musicians and immersed in the sounds of NOLA! Found this via Julie Leah on Pinterest and just adore this snapshot.
Nothing is more colorful than the Mardi Gras Indians. Swimming in the sea of pink and imagining how amazing these guys looked in person. Image via rvschex on Flickr.
Confetti makes it better. Although messy, a shot filled with glittery goodness raining down on you is always a keeper. This shot is via a BuzzFeed article about BFF Photo Ideas.
Mardi Gras and masks go hand-in-hand. Wear a mask to set yourself free. It’s part of the history of Mardi Gras and it’s a fun way to celebrate and mix-up your photos. We found too many masks to post here, but a few favorites of Katy Perry, a NOLA Masquerade Wedding, and some semi-creepy vintage mardi gras photos found on Tumblr.
This photo is just awesome. It really has nothing to do with Mardi Gras per se, but the pink colors and the concept of building some elaborate masks, large enough for two, is completely awesome. We found it via HonestlyWTF and it’s a piece by Eugenia Loli.
