Pixie Dust began after the founder, Samantha, failed to find any environmentally friendly glitter in any of the shops in New Orleans. Samantha ended up buying biodegradable glitter from Europe.
It took way too long to get here, it was overpriced, and the quality wasn't the best. From that point on it has become the goal of Pixie Dust to make high quality eco-friendly glitter readily available in local shops or at your doorstep!
Pixie Dust is plant based and will fully breakdown in the natural environment within six weeks. It is made from eucalyptus tree cellulose film making it softer on your skin and safer than plastic for use around the eyes. Pixie Dust is made with Bioglitter.
The worlds only certified fresh water biodegradable glitter.
Thankfully, eco-initiatives are on the rise! Krewe de Fleurs ‘Seeds as Beads’, Grounds Krewe’s ‘Future of Mardi Gras Expo’ featuring wooden doubloons and TrashFormers, Nola’s first recycling marching Krewe, are just a few examples. The idea of a plastic free, sustainable Mardi Gras is becoming more popular each year.
The Historic Swoop-Duggins House, located in a historic three-story, three-bay, brick house with an attached two-story service wing located in New Orlean’s CBD, offers a private, second floor exclusively for events complete with private entry. For larger events, or guests wishing for a progressive event experience, you may opt to also include the courtyard as well as the entire first floor, Swoop’s dining room and bar, as part of your event.
The Historic Swoop-Duggins House’s event space can be privately accessed by both its own beautiful wooden staircase as well as the courtyard, both leading to the immaculately decorated rooms on the second floor. Rich colors and ornate fabrics complement the artwork that adorns the walls as well as the multiple fireplaces. The “gallery” (a balcony spanning the depth of an entire sidewalk and the full length of the building) allows guests to experience the sites and sounds of New Orleans during your event.
The space at The Historic Swoop-Duggins House provides your guests with a unique event experience in that not only do you have access to the second floor during your event, you have the option to utilize the courtyard as part of your event.
