Mardi Gras is near and dear to our hearts and is the quintessential Louisiana event. Carnival season is always fun and filled with amazing parties, food and parades. While we are sad when we are not able to join the festivities in person, we do our best to have a little bit of the party wherever we may be! Roux Maison stays in the spirit all year long with a little wink to Mardi Gras and our Louisiana roots.
Roux Maison laundry products are all color coded by scent, and our colors are our own versions of the Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold and green. Traditionally, purple represents justice, gold represents power and green represents faith. For us, purple represents our Ambrosia scent which is a soothing lavender blend. Gold represents our Sweet Tea scent that is citrusy, and green is for the bright and fresh scent of all of our fragrance-free laundry products.
We decorate and celebrate and always have a King Cake! We’ve managed to find some really good options locally here in Nashville and you can probably find some good ones where you live as well. If not, you can always ship one in from New Orleans. We hide the little King in the cake and the person who finds it must buy the cake and host the party the following year.
We hope your Mardi Gras is filled with fun, friends and laughter and that you find the baby in your King Cake! Let us know your favorite ways to celebrate!
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
