How to Plan the Ultimate Mardi Gras Party
Looking to host the fat party of the year? Hunting for the perfect Mardi Gras costumes? Three hundred years of Mardi Gras traditions can’t be wrong, so base your party planning this year on true customs from Rio to New Orleans.
Start with the invitations. Prepare your party as if it were one of the Mardi Gras’ Society Balls. Choose a theme, much like the Krewes of New Orleans do, and have everything you prepare reflect it. As party hosts, you may choose yourselves as King and Queen of the Ball, or throw the party in honor of friends. Purchase specialty Mardi Gras Ball printed invitations. Receiving one of these invitations is a great honor down in New Orleans. With special planning, yours will be too.
Costumes and Props
Costumes are a must. Require your guests to come in full Mardi Gras regalia, including masks. This will add an exotic touch to your party and lend an aura of mystique and romance to the evening. Spend some time choosing the perfect costume for you and your lover, and encourage your friends to do the same. Picking your costumes together is a great way to create some excitement in your relationships. You can find romantic and sexy costumes online or at local costume stores.
Get the right Mardi Gras props. Lots of shiny bead necklaces, chocolate coins and purple, green and gold decorations in keeping with the official colors of Mardi Gras.
Buy or make King Cakes. In keeping with one of the most unique traditions of Mardi Gras, these individual funnel-type cakes are usually decorated with green, gold and purple icing sugar or sprinkles. In one of the cakes someone should find a tiny baby doll. Tradition states that whoever finds the doll will be responsible for providing the next year’s King Cakes.
Parade and Romance
Have a parade. For a neighborhood party, try getting your guests to make their own Mardi Gras ‘floats’ (perhaps decorating their cars or bicycles). Set up a time and place not far from your party’s location and laugh and sing your way through the streets before the real party starts.
Add some romance. When it’s time for the masked ball, it should be adults only. In true Mardi Gras spirit, this part of the night is for enjoying excesses in love, drink, dance and romance. Encourage your guests to let go and have fun. Let yourself delve into the persona you’ve chosen, and enjoy a rekindling of desire and romance with your partner.
