Mardi Gras Party Ideas and Resources

We had the pleasure of hosting our own Mardi Gras party last year--sponsored by Zatarains and House Party.  Not only was it a lot of fun--but, we learned a lot of tips, tricks and found a number of our own resources along the way. Let us share some of our favorite ideas to help make your Mardi Gras Party a success this year.

The Invitations. Whether you are sending invitations at the last minute, or weeks in advance--there are a number of Mardi Gras invitations options available to hosts. There are so many websites offering both printable and even free e-invites for Mardi Gras parties. Check out a list of our favorite free Mardi Gras party invitation Websites.

The Decorations. Setting the tone of any party is key to its success. Check out sites like Oriental Trading Company or for loads of Mardi Gras Masks , Purple Gold and Green Mardi Gras Beads, and colorful Mardi Gras Tablecovers or Mardi Gras Crepe Streamers.  Use your imagination and even create colorful purple, gold and green floral displays or paper craft centerpieces.

Mardi Gras Party Food and Drinks.  Bring out the spices!  What are some of our favorite Mardi Gras inspired foods?  Zatarain's Red Bean and Rice Party Dip, Jambalaya,  and a traditional King Cake.  Check out a few of our favorite Mixed Drinks for Mardi Gras Themed Parties for some quick and easy party drink ideas.

Music.  Nothing sets party moods like traditional, fun party music.  Whether you opt to play a themed music station from a web radio site like, purchase music cd's or download the music for the party--upbeat Zydeco sounds really help set the party scene.

With these important basics covered, your Mardi Gras party planning is off to a great start!
