It’s that time of year again to start planning your Mardi Gras celebration! Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a first-time host, Mardi Gras is always an exciting event. But how do you make sure it’s the best one around? To help you out, we’ve put together this handy guide so that you can make sure your Mardi Gras Party is the ultimate experience. Read on to discover our top tips for throwing an unforgettable bash. 


Choose a Festive Theme

If you want to give your guests something extra special, consider choosing a theme for your Mardi Gras celebration. This will add some extra flair to the festivities and really help set the mood for the night. Some popular choices include masquerade balls, casino games, or even New Orleans-style jazz nights. Whatever theme you decide on, just make sure that it fits with what your guests are looking for in their party experience. 


The Perfect Party Decorations

Once you have chosen a theme for your bash, it’s time to get decorating! You can go all out with decorations for your party by using streamers, balloons, confetti, and more. Be sure to choose colors that fit your chosen theme; traditional Mardi Gras colors like purple, green, and gold are always popular choices. For a festive touch, consider hanging up strings of beads around the room or even placing masks on each seat at the table if you are going with a masquerade theme. 


Provide Plenty of Food & Drinks

No matter what type of party you are hosting, food and drinks should be high on the list of priorities! Make sure plenty of food is available so that everyone has enough to eat throughout the night. Think about serving classic New Orleans dishes like jambalaya or gumbo—or if you want something simpler, provide some chips and dip or finger foods like mini pizzas or quesadillas. When it comes to drinks, make sure there is something for everyone—from soda and juice boxes to signature cocktails like; “The Hurricane.” And don’t forget about dessert! Fluffy Beignets or a King cake is always a hit at any Mardi Gras shindig!
