Mardi Gras Party
The first big event that I ever threw was a Mardi Gras Party. It was such a success that I caught the “Party Throwing Fever!”
Here are some ideas that we used, along with a few others for you to select from!
Mardi Gras Invitations
Start your party off right with a fun and colorful invitation. Use the colors of purple, gold and green.

Write the invitations on a Mask Enclose some Mardi Gras beads with the invitations
Mardi Gras Decorations
Mardi Gras Decorations need to be big, festive, and over the top! Balloons and Streamers in Purple, Gold and Green…the more the better Beads (Purple, Gold, Green) EVERYWHERE Gold Plastic Coins/Doubloons – scatter on tables Masks covered in glitter and feathers Boas in Purple, Gold, Green Colored lights around the room (leftover from Christmas)
Mardi Gras Food and Beverages
Mardi Gras King Cake Coffee & Beignets Hurricanes If you are serving dinner, a Crawfish Boil or Gumbo would be great, or even Jambalaya
Mardi Gras Party Music
Music is so important for any party, and a Mardi Gras theme party is no exception. Depending on your crowd, you could play...
Any Party Music Dixieland Jazz Zydeco
Mardi Gras Activities and Party Games
Hand out beads as guests arrive. Encourage Guests to come dressed for Mardi Gras and award prizes for the best, craziest, etc. You could even crown a Mardi Gras Queen and King! Have a few extra beads on hand for guests who arrive and aren’t in costume. If you don't do costumes, have everyone wear a mask to the party, or hand them out as people arrive. Since beads are already part of this party, try the Off Limits Game.Will you have kids at your party? Visit our Kid's Page for ideas on how they can have fun with this party theme too.
