How to Host an Epic Mardi Gras Party
Mardi Gras is seriously the BEST festival in the U.S. I went a couple years back with some of my closest friends and we had an amazing time. We watched the parades, ate/drank an unbelievable amount of food/alcohol, and soaked up the awesomeness that is New Orleans! Unfortunately, I cannot afford to go to NOLA every year during Mardi Gras. If you are like me then the next best option is to throw a Mardi Gras party! Since no party is complete with out decorations, food, and alcoholic beverages, I have put together a list of the radest Mardi Gras party ideas. Enjoy & Laissez les bons temps rouler!!
