Who doesn’t love a good Mardi Gras party? Even though it’s most celebrated in New Orleans, it doesn’t mean the Northeast can’t have a little fun too. And what better way to celebrate it than with a Las Vegas-inspired Mardi Gras theme? Even if you’ve never thrown this type of party you can easily make it into a bash that all of your friends will enjoy and remember. Here’s how to throw the ultimate Mardi Gras party:
Step 1: Figure Out Your Theme
The first thing you need to do when planning a Vegas-inspired Mardi Gras party is to figure out your theme. You need to decide whether this will be an over the top party for only adults or if kids will be invited to your bash. Whatever you decide to do, make sure there is plenty of glitz and glamour just like there is in Las Vegas. Don’t forget to incorporate plenty of Mardi Gras colors like purple, green and gold, and decorate with the traditional New Orleans decor and beads.
Step 2: Plan Your Menu
Vegas is all about buffets. You can easily incorporate this into your Mardi Gras party by setting up tables filled with foods that guests can serve themselves, this will also make your hosting duties a little bit easier. And don’t forget to set up an area with plenty of cocktails and mocktails. You may even want to consider hiring a bartender for a more upscale feel for your party.
Step 3: Costumes
One of the best parts of your night will be seeing all of the costumes that everyone wears and their personal take on Mardi Gras! Encourage your guests to put a lot of thought into their costumes by hosting a costume contest. Give out prizes like the most creative costume, the best couples costume, and the most elaborate group costume.
