Food, Glorious Food!

Mardis Gras is not the English translation of “Fat Tuesday” for nothing. Since this day of celebration is held before Lent and fasting begin, it’s only natural to gorge on glorious food. So if you really want a carnival-inspired celebration, it is a must for your party to be filled (if not overflowing) with food. You can start off with a simple appetizer like this scrumptious shrimp canapé recipe from Leslie Styles’ blog. Caryn Ross also shares a couple of easy-to-make Mardis Gras recipes on her blog, Cooking with Caryn. Follow it up with three or four types of main dish until your guests reach the delicious moon pie dessert or traditional king cake. You don’t have to worry because there’s always room for dessert.

The Venue: Your Home

When it comes to choosing a venue, it’s better to host intimate parties in familiar places. What other place would be more familiar than your own home? If you have a nice garden shielded from the cool winter breeze, you can host an outdoor party. If not, you can settle for a cozy party indoors. Glam up your home with lovely centerpieces and table decorations. We found this 11 unique table decoration ideas from the Inspiration for Home blog.
