Last week I held a Mardi Gras themed bunco party at my house. My first thought was to use some great designs that I had seen on Hostess for the Mostess. I used the free printables for score cards, table signs and food labels. They fit the party theme perfectly!
I had a vase with Mardi Gras colored flowers and used beads and a mask to decorate it. I also had roses left over from Valentine’s Day that I also used.
I hung bright colored paper masks that I made around as decor.
For the food, I had a Muffaletta bar so everyone could make their own tasty New Orleans style sandwich.
I also served some other New Orleans style food like spicy shrimp dip, red beans & rice and sausage medallions.
Of course, we had to have Hurricanes to drink. I used Sandra Lee’s recipe for this and it definitely was a strong drink!
A traditional Mardi Gras dessert is the King Cake. Instead of doing a big King’s Cake, I did individual Mini King’s Cakes.
Guests came in beautiful masks, a lot of colorful beads and everyone had a night of fun!
