With the traditional Mardi Gras cancelled, due to COVID and the inclement weather, a new kind of celebration is taking place this year in New Orleans . . .
Check out the Yardi Gras movement of 2021.
It is a beautiful display of strength and resilience that we hope continues every year!
Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, is traditionally a day spent celebrating with music, food, drink, parades, and dancing. Today more than 1,000 NOLA homes are celebrating in a new way, called 'Yardi Gras'. Residents are decorating their homes and yards like parade floats.
It’s said that the Rex of the 1892 Mardi Gras parade assigned meaning to the traditional purple, green and gold colors:
- Purple represents justice
- Green represents faith
- Gold represents power.
Today The Dowry celebrates the justice, faith and power of the City of New Orleans!
We admire this display of true indomitable will! Though all our important 2021 moments look markedly different, they remain full of joy and love.
Whether you live in New Orleans, Portland, St. Paul, Raleigh, or New York . . . 2021 is THE year to decorate your home and table so your intimate celebrations feel all the more special.
