Mardi Gras party tips
When sending the invitation; let the invitees know the kind of party they want to attend, you can do that by designing the invitation cards with colors that are related to the party theme, so that they can prepare well for it. If you cannot provide all the beads the invitees will use due to the cost, include it in their invitation that they should bring some beads with them when coming.
Consider giving it a theme; it could be block party (neighbors are invited and the best idea decoration is to use flag and festoon), fancy dress party (here, the guests’ dresses in fairy tale costumes of bright colors), or pancake party (organize pancake eating competition).
Use bright and beautiful colors such as green, purple, and gold to decorate the party room. Decorate the table with mixed colors of decorating materials and place some items on it, may be give away items. Create a space where the guests can dance.
Ensure the guests decorate themselves with beads during the parades cause the crowd in the street will ask for something and the best thing to give out is the beads.
The best music to play in this party is either classical music or jazz; depending on the host choice. Just play what you think the guests will like.
As a host, try to prepare a very delicious food for your guests.
