Dazzling Mardi Gras Lights: Celebrate in Style

You don't have to be one of the million people traveling to New Orleans for the many Mardi Gras celebrations to embrace this annual holiday. Decorating the inside and outside of your home with lights is a perfect way to bring a piece of Mardi Gras to you, wherever you are. 

Mardi Gras lights are perfect for enhancing your festive endeavors. Maximum impact with minimal effort. Celebrate in style with unique light-up signs, motifs, and silhouettes. 

Purple, Green, and Gold 

When decorating for Mardi Gras, use purple, green, and gold. These colors represent Christian symbolism related to the holiday's meaning. This festive holiday occurs on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. 

Purple represents justice. Green represents faith. Gold symbolizes power. Share your spirit with custom designed lighting that showcases Mardi Gras.

Mardi Gras Symbols 

In addition to using Mardi Gras colors, you can also use the most common symbols to celebrate Mardi Gras. Classic bulbs or LED string lights are perfect for draping around or on your house. They symbolize the famous beads thrown and collected during the infamous Mardi Gras parades. 

Masks are another popular item. They symbolize transformation, allowing people to immerse themselves in the power of Mardi Gras. People can do things they wouldn't normally do when embracing the anonymity of wearing a mask. 

Another classic Mardi Gras and New Orleans symbol is the fleur de lis. It is a French symbol rooted deep in European culture, which is what helped shape the heritage and culture of New Orleans. It is also a symbol of purity. 

Finally, Mardi Gras is about celebrating with others. So don't be afraid to decorate with well wishes for others. It could be a simple "Happy Mardi Gras!" You can also celebrate like the locals with "Laissez les bon temps rouler," Cajun French for "let the good times roll."
