FAB UP YOUR LIFE
Here's what you *need* to throw the perfect Mardi Gras party
Mardi Gras is coming up on February 28th...and while you might not be at the parade in the Big Easy, you can (and should!) still celebrate at home. To help you plan the most fab fete (that's French for party), we’ve rounded some of our favorite finds from delicious eats to purple, green and gold *everything*.
Popcorn is always a party fave, but this recipe takes it to the next level with splashes of Mardi Gras colors.
Welcome your guests with a masquerade wreath. This one is super easy—just attach a bunch of masks together and top off with a ribbon.
Make your own colorful garland to string around the room. Bonus: Use glittery cardstock for an extra special feel.
This delicious dessert is one of the holiday's biggest traditions—a plastic baby is hidden inside the cake and whoever finds it in their slice, is thought to have good luck for the next year. Plus, the finder of the baby is crowned queen for the evening!
If you aren't up for making an entire cake, or just want something a little more grab-and-go for your guests, try these mini king cake knots instead.
If you're feeling fancy, make these DIY candle holders to add some glitz and glam.
Every girl needs a gorgeous mask for the party. Have each guest decorate their own using glitter, pom poms, paint and anything else you can think of.
Of course, you *have* to get pics of you all in your DIY masks. Pile on lots of beads, too, then pose in front of a festive backdrop that looks like you're on the streets of New Orleans for the best Insta shot.
