DIY Party Favors
You can’t have a Mardi Gras party without masks, so get all your purple, green, and gold party supplies ready for a DIY project that’s easy and fun. Encourage your friends to make their own as soon as they arrive. Set up a table with colorful masks, stickers, glitter, and whatever else you can find that will bring Mardi Gras to life!
Photo Booth Fun
You don’t have to be a professional to take cute pictures. Since your guests already have masks, this party will be easy. Just hang a purple sheet and throw some confetti and you’re ready to roll.
Don’t Forget the Beads
Of course you’ll need beads; it’s what this holiday is all about—maybe just don’t throw them inside your house. But if you’re feeling adventurous, step outside and go for it!
