On Louisiana's River Road Plantation Trail. The building pictured on this ornament is the small building separate from the large plantation house where the French sugarcane planter's teenage sons lived and slept away from the ladies of the household.

What a great idea - a Mardi Gras tree. I guess you could have a theme tree for every month of the year!

Imagine, a Mardi gras tree!
But I really like the beautiful mask at the base of the vase.
I thought a Mardi gras was just a parade down the street with a bit of a party afterwards, seems I was wrong.
Enjoy the fun.
