Atlanta Falcons fans may like to hate on the beloved Saints, but they all know the Mardi Gras colors. If you're planning a NOLA theme party, you can go with the traditional colors of Mardi Gras in green, gold, and purple - which works for both casual and upscale parties. Or if you're a sports fan, you can choose the colors of the Saints in black and gold, which also work great for more formal parties and events. For house parties and intimate events, Party City has a great supply of Mardi Gras theme decor. Just don't forget, no party is complete without tons of beads. You can use them for decor or pass them out to guests. If you hosting a larger event, such as a corporate function, it's all about the atmosphere of the venue. Le Bam Event and Design Studio, run by Marina Bonder, is a great venue for all type of events. And, their decor is perfect for New Orleans theme parties. They also offer all inclusive services for weddings and events.
New Orleans is known for cuisine, so if you're hosting an event, you'll want to make sure you hit a home run with this one. As an expert on Louisiana foods and dishes, we can be quite particular if ain't right. If you're looking for catering, the Crab Boil located in Doraville provides catering for a variety of events and special occasions. We haven't tried their gumbo or crawfish etoufee to give them a 100% referral just yet. But they do have amazing seafood! They also have live music on the weekends, if you're looking for a fun night out. For treats, you must try New Orleans native, Chay J's Candies - you'll be glad ya did. Just be sure to include the Mardi Gras staple - King Cake.
One thing New Orleans is known for is celebrating life. From graduations, weddings, birthday parties, and even funerals, every day is a day worth celebrating. Follow in the spirit of NOLA by adding plenty of entertainment and activities to keep your guests entertained. You can have guests make your their own masks with feathers, sequins, and glitter. Or ask your guests to dress up in costume, and host a costume contest. For live entertainment, nothing says Mardi Gras like a 2nd Line Parade. Add a live brass act to 2nd Line Atlanta, and you got yourself a bonafide New Orleans style parade.
