Mardi Gras Valentine's for 2010

Mardi Gras is coming early in 2010! This coming year, Mardi Gras will be on Tuesday, February 16.

Whoa! So soon! And with Valentine's Day 2010 coming on its usual February 14, there is such great potential for a Mardi Gras style Valentine's Day. Here are a bunch of ideas so that you don't get caught off guard when these two very distinct holidays collide:

Masks are the Mardi Gras trade mark, and masks also make great mystery fun for love birds. Classic romance-style masks naturally suggest the color red, with lace, feathers, golden trim, and hearts. Imagine two secretly wooing love birds, one in a graceful red and gold masquerade Mardi Gras mask and the other in a classic black and gold venetian Mardi Gras mask. Or a regal masked princess wearing a golden Mardi Gras mask with ribbons and jewels listening to the love songs sung by a wooer in the mysterious midnight masquerade Mardi Gras mask.

Real Valentine's mystery can be had with full face masks of Mardi Gras flavor. Full face black and gold masquerade masks give a lover a spooky and serene look. And then there is the reveler-lover with the very potentially deceptive plain white full face masquerade mask.

This is definitely a festive idea that you can develop further and further. If your a lover of revels, it's actually very lucky to have Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras falling so near to each other for 2010!
