Presentation Pointers:

1. The colors of Mardi Gras festivals are purple, green and gold (signifying justice faith and power). Tablecloths, plates and silverware in these colors will add an authentic touch to your Mardi Gras celebration.

2. Face masks, streamers, confetti and balloons will spice up your Mardi Gras party decor. Go that extra step to make your party more memorable!

3. Make it a costume party and invite guests to dress up in their favorite over-the-top attire. For unadorned guests, supply extra feathers, sequins and beads! You can even take a poll for best dressed and crown them at the end of the night.
