Mardi Gras Party Supplies
Mardi Gras signifies the ultimate celebration! If you are hosting a Fat Tuesday party this year, it is going to take some planning and preparation. Purchase your Mardi Gras party supplies ahead of time so that you do not get too stressed in the days leading up to the big event. Then all you will have to do on the morning of your party is set up your Mardi Gras supplies and decorations and enjoy the party!
- Tableware: Purchase themed Mardi Gras party supplies for your party. Many retailers sell packages of themed tableware such as utensils, plates, and napkins. Make sure that your paper goods are brightly colored to match the theme of your party. Another important tableware purchase is a tablecloth – every Mardi Gras celebration has a spill or two!
- Banners, Signs, and Posters: Hang up a banner for your party that says “Welcome to the Carnival.” You can also hang up signs throughout your party to create a New Orleans atmosphere. Make homemade street signs that say “Bourbon Street”, “French Quarter”, and “Jackson Square." If you have attended a Mardi Gras festival in the past, enlarge your pictures and hang them on the walls. This will allow your guests can feel like they are really in New Orleans!
- Decorations: Other great Mardi Gras party supplies that you can purchase ahead of time are the decorations for your event. Some great decoration ideas are streamers, garland, lights, balloons, and of course, Mardi Gras beads. Make sure that your decorations match your Mardi Gras theme. Popular colors for a Mardi Gras themed party are gold, green, and purple.
- Costumes: No Mardi Gras party is complete without costumes! Be sure to have plenty of Mardi Gras masks, beads, and hats for your guests to wear during your event. If you do not want to purchase all of these party supplies on your own, you could also ask your guests to wear their own costumes to your party.
- Party Favors: Themed party favors are a great way to thank your guests for attending your party. These Mardi Gras party supplies can be purchased at any party store or online. Some ideas for party favors are Mardi Gras beads, coins, or candy.
