Even if you don’t reside in New Orleans, you can still throw a bright, beautiful and fun Mardi Gras party.
Don’t forget to send out invitations for your big event. But don’t just send out any invitations – they should be themed around your party! This Masquerade Invitation is perfect for the occasion – it’s filled with rich shades of purple and features a masquerade mask complete with feathers. Guests receiving this invitation will have no doubt about what type of soiree they’re being invited to.
Coordinate your event’s decorations with the bold hues on your invitations. Gold-colored dinnerware can be paired with bright purple napkins and a green table runner. Hand out purple, gold and green beaded necklaces to incorporate more color into your party and give your guests a fun way to dress up for the occasion.
New Orleans-style dishes
On your party menu, you should have at least a few dishes that are native to New Orleans. Choose between chicken and shrimp jambalaya, red beans and rice, Cajun pot roast, muffulettas and po-boys. As for dessert, bananas foster, beignets and king cakes are the perfect way to stick to a Mardi Gras theme and finish off the party on a sweet note.
