Mardi Gras Party Invitations & Ideas

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Come as you aren’t!  Fat Tuesday is on March 8, 2011.  It’s time to search for those famous beads you keep hidden in your closet and begin the search for your brand new Mardi Gras mask! 

Mardi Gras themed parties are more and more popular in the beginning year months as we prepare for this wild, crazy and fun holiday.  They’re really fun, and a great way to get your guests involved in your party theme.  Ask your guests to wear a mask when they come to your event and then guess who is who when they walk into the party.  Give each guest a handful of colorful beads and have them award the person with the best mask their beads.  Whoever has the most beads at the end of the night can win a prize for the best mask at the party!  

Set the scene for your Mardi Gras themed party with traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, gold and black.  Spread confetti or beads across your table tops and around the room.  Use a light machine to create a dance club ambiance and have some crazy tunes in the background.  Be sure to take plenty of pictures of guests as they arrive in their Mardi Gras masks and attire.

When choosing a Mardi Gras invitation, choose a design which best accentuates your party style, whether it’s upscale or completely wild and for the books.  Our Mardi Gras invitations feature colorful masks, feather and bead designs, traditional Mardi Gras hues in gold, purple and green or festive party cocktails.  Below are some of our favorite and most popular Mardi Gras designs…
