When people think of Mardi Gras that instantly think of celebrations and fun. Whether it be parade routes, throws, exotic spiced foods, and the many flavorful drinks that are everyone during Mardi Gras truly makes it fun for everyone in attendance.
Few people anywhere in the world can ever truly experience the blowout of the French Quarter Mardi Gras, you can use it for the best themed birthday party and have a "good times will roll" attitude, which of course has put the New Orleans a true sight to see for everyone around the globe. After all, Mardi Gras is the celebration of life and having a good time.
Perhaps you are concerned about where to begin, which is tough.
I am not quite sure which is the most important when it comes to bringing a true Mardi Gras festival that is worthy of the Crescent City. You may think it is the food and music, but I suppose that it will depend on the aspects that are most important to your own celebration needs, and what kind of equipment and building you have available to you. Mardi Gras music needs to fit the season of the festivities, even if the one having the birthday is a bit older, you would need to include the genuine funeral march in the mix of the music. There are many CD's with Mardi Gras music that you can find on the Internet for your birthday party needs.
The cuisines in New Orleans is wonderful even though many of the ingredients you need may in fact be hard to find if you are not near the bayou. However, no matter where you live in the country, you can make many of the New Orleans dishes work well for your Mardi Gras themed birthday party. Moreover, you have the option to hold the true spirit of Mardi Gras by having a King Cake and not a traditional birthday cake.
Although, you could take a regular cake and decorate it in purple, green, and gold colors of Mardi Gras, which will do if you have nothing else. You should have some red beans and rice, bread pudding, gumbo soup, jambalaya, and oyster po-boys are excellent to fit in which your Mardi Gras theme.
The colors of Mardi Gras are purple, gold, and green so you need to use these when you are decorating your Mardi Gras themed birthday party room. Favorites for parties include beads that are the Mardi Gras colors, feathered masks, and doubloons. You are creating a fun and festive atmosphere and you do not need to spend a lot of money in order to make this happen. You can find most everything you need at a local party supply store, to have the most eventful Mardi Gras birthday celebration regardless of the time of year. If you can't find some of the items locally, you can find it online with little effort.
If you are planning a large gathering for the party with various ages in attendance, you might want to have two punch bowls, one without alcohol and the other with for those of a drinking age. If it is only adults in attendance, then you can have the punch bowls spiked and everyone will be very happy. Be sure to make the infamous Hurricane, which of course have a new meaning to New Orleans after Katrina.
Lastly, sit back and let the party move at the pace it will, but just keep in mind that it is a celebration of the birthday person living another year. Regardless of anything, those that work, live, and play in the City that many forgot know how to party. Make sure you check some of the Cajun recipes and order many drinks, bring your best friends, and turn up the music for a night to remember!
