Mardi Gras Bunco

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!
