The Colors of Mardi Gras

The Colors of Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras decoration is all about the colors. Look at any picture of Mardi Gras floats and you’ll quickly see the theme. But why those colors? In 1872, the Krewe of Rex was founded. The organization was created to put on a spectacle for visiting Duke Alexei Alexandrovich of Russia and to entice tourists to visit a post-civil war New Orleans.

The krewe designed elaborate floats and quickly became a fixture in the Mardi Gras parade. An individual is chosen annually to represent the krewe as their Rex (the latin word for king) as the self proclaimed “King of Carnival”. The first reigning Rex chose the colors and assigned them meanings. Many of its traditions, not just the colors, were adapted by other krewes and are a traditional part of the Mardi Gras celebration to this day.

The colors and their meanings are as follows:

Purple – Justice
Gold – Power
Green – Faith

A Floral Tradition

Flowers are a long-standing tradition in Mardi Gras decoration. Almost every float has some variation of floral accent. And for those who can’t make it to New Orleans this year, flowers mark one of the easiest and most attractive ways to decorate for your party. The colors of Mardi Gras could not have been more perfectly chosen. Purples, greens and golds are prevalent in the floral world, and some of the most popular flowers come in those hues.

History Of The Wedding Dress

Marriage has always accounted as the occasion where one would display their best dressing style. Do you ever wonder about the emergence of wedding dress? When and how did white become the favored color for wedding dress? White might seem to be the eternal color for wedding, but, surprisingly, history tells us something else. The trend of white dates back to the Victorian era, before which there were myriad colors used for wedding dress. For those who want to get complete information about the origin of wedding dress, the following lines will suffice.
Interesting Information On Background Of Wedding Dress
Ancient brides used to dress up in brightly colored wedding garments. Effervescent colors symbolized the happiness of the bride. Things changed in the medieval times, when marriages started to mean the bondage between not only two individuals, but also between two families, two businesses and even two countries. Brides of this era cautiously dressed as they singularly represented the whole community.
Medieval brides from well-to-do families wore rich colors and luxurious fabrics, like furs, velvet and silk. Those from middle class families wore stuff that was a copy of the elegant styles of the richer class. The trend continued for a few years and the wedding dress became a symbol of the social status of the family. The more material used, the more sleeves, the longer the train, the richer the bride’s family was assumed to be.
While the rich used the power of money to get the best possible dress from the market, brides from the poor family wore their church dress for their wedding. The trend of white wedding attire was started by Queen Victoria. It was in 1840 and Queen Victoria married Prince Albert of Saxe, wearing a white wedding gown. White came as a big, but pleasant surprise to everyone. Soon, brides from all over Europe and America began wearing white wedding dresses as well.
While there were some who preferred vibrant colors, white definitely had seeped into the minds of people. By the end of the century, white had become the color of the wedding dress. Various trends and styles were adopted to make the dress a perfect bliss on the D-Day. However, more changes were in store. During the Great Depression and World War II, the eternal white dress was replaced by the church dress.
People thought that it was not the appropriate to wear lavish dresses, when there was grief all around. After the war ended, luxurious wedding dresses in white jumped back into the center stage. With time, shades of white, cream, off white or ivory became acceptable as wedding dress colors. Today brides’ dresses have adopted varied dressing styles. From the timeless white to the Hawaiian beach dress, the options are endless.

Diane Karren,

Says, “I was more than pleased”, when talking about an encasement she had done at Suspended In Time.  The story behind her encasement is that of her little Brigham who passed away.  She says, “Our little Brigham who passed away last August had a beautiful, perfect little body.  We were able to have a mold done of his little hands and feet.  “Suspended in Time” created a beautiful memory for us to always remember our sweet baby.”
