3 Event Planning Tips to Throw a Fun Mardi Gras Party, Franklin, New Jersey

Throughout the year, students need a chance to unwind, and participating in a festival allows them to do so. While the mention of Mardi Gras is often met by positive cheers, throwing a party during this time of year does not guarantee it will be a hit. The event planning team at College Gigs, serving the New England area, shares some tips to ensure your Mardi Gras party is a hit.

How to Throw a Successful Mardi Gras Party for Your College

1. Send Out RSVPs 

When event planning, getting people to RSVP will give you a more accurate idea as to how many people will show up. While this number is not completely reliable, it makes it easier to plan for things like food, seating, masks, and refreshments. Send out RSVP emails to everyone at your college at least a few weeks in advance. This will give you enough time to determine how large of an event you should host.

2. Provide Masks at the Door

Add some spontaneity to your party by providing your guests with masks and other Mardi Gras favorites like beads and feathers.

3. Order More Than Enough Food 

When it comes to Mardi Gras, the food is one of the highlights of the event. New Orleans is known for traditional and flavorful dishes like gumbo and jambalaya, as well as desserts, such as bread pudding and king cake. As you make the menu for the event, make sure to order more than enough; there’s a reason Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday.
