Also known as Fat Tuesday, today marks one of the biggest days of the year in New Orleans. However you celebrate today (Anybody out there find the baby figurine inside a King cake?!), here is some Mardi Gras inspiration for you.

If you love French design, this Parisian-style nook is the perfect setting to sit back and enjoy an éclair.

I immediately thought of Mardi Gras beads when I laid eyes on this chandelier. If you’ve ever been to New Orleans, you’ll see the beads hanging from trees, power lines and posts year-round.

And for those of you dreading giving up sweets for Lent tomorrow, you still have today to make these Mardi Gras macarons. Bon appétit!
