Mardi Gras Masquerade Template

Even in October, you might catch us daydreaming about Carnival. This mask has us pondering how many parades we’ll attend and what costume we’ll wear on Fat Tuesday.

Creepy Crawfish

We’ve already bid adieu to crawfish season, but we’re always craving these delicious critters (even in October). Thank goodness for oysters, a worthy distraction in the off-season. Enter your email address above or click here to signup and download all of the pumpkin carving templates.

The Enchanted Cathedral

If the French Quarter is the heart (and historic epicenter) of New Orleans, then St. Louis Cathedral is the heart of that heart. Its iconic architecture looks especially beautiful after dark, when an air of enchantment surrounds its peaks and spires.

Spirit of the City

The fleur de lis symbol is synonymous with the city of New Orleans, and, like our city, its history incorporates French and Spanish elements. Modeled after a lily flower  — it translates literally to “flower of lily” — this icon crops up all over New Orleans (fun fact: you can also find it on my kitchen cabinet pulls).
