February is just full of fun reasons to have a party: the Grammy’s, Valentine’s Day, the Oscars, and Mardi Gras! Late last month, I was in charge of setting up a booth for a reception at the state capital for all of the legislators. Each county in our region sets up a booth that shows off what we have to offer. Since the event is hosted during the last week of January/first week of February, they have always gone with a mardi gras theme. While I was sorting through the decorations we’ve always used, I complained to Mary that all I had was a bin of green/gold/purple cheap crap. I made the best of it and got a lot of compliments on our booth, but I wish that next year we could go for a classier interpretation of the mardi gras theme.

In this week’s treasury, I’m trying to explore a little of that by pairing cobalt blue — my favorite super trendy color right now — with the iconic fleur de lis.

I really like the pops of cobalt against the black and white. It really modernizes the classic-looking fleur de lis.

I am totally lusting after the organizer tray. I like how substantial it looks while still having a low profile.  It would be perfect to catch some loose items on a shelf and provide eye-catching color against dark but neutral furniture.

I would love a few of the cobalt blue wine bottle wall vases. I can think of several places in our house that they would be cute, and I love industrial metals.
