Centerpiece + grab-and-go Mardi Gras accessories = these easy to make decorations! Everyone will be jazzed over these giant cocktail glasses filled with tons of "throws" and adorned with feathered masks!
The doubloon is one of the most enduring symbols of Mardi Gras. These highly detailed, brightly-colored coins are thrown from the floats and many have become collector items. Doubloons are stamped with the different carnival club logo on one side and the parade's theme on the other, so that no two clubs have doubloons that are exactly alike, and each year they are different, too. They are minted in various colors, and from different materials, like aluminum, silver, bronze and now plastic.
