Who Doesn’t Love Mardi Gras?
Mardi Gras Party Decorations are so much fun! The Mardi Gras theme was a blast for me to do for a couple of proms. The colors are so much fun, along with the masks. I even did glass centerpieces for this prom. It is so easy to pull everything together because there are so many different ideas you can use for your Mardi Gras party decorations.
First, when you are decorating a prom, the dance floor has to be eye opening amazing right?! This dance floor is actually 30 x 60 feet. It is one of the biggest dance floors that I do. However, it also looks spectacular! Of course, I had to have people in the way for my photo. UGH! You get the idea though.
Can you imagine dancing under all of that! I never had anything like that for my proms. This prom is at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville, Michigan. I love the event rooms there. They also have beautiful patios off the front and the back doors.
Okay, back to Mardi Gras party decorations. You can see from the photo that I have 8 balloon columns on the dance floor to help with the many balloon arches that criss cross above our heads. Take a look at my column close up. I just love it!
This column has the 35″ gold moon topper. I found the 5″ star balloons, which are air filled and sealed to add some color. (Personally I don’t do that, so I ordered them from my wholesaler where they blow them up and seal them for me. Beware if you are trying to do this all yourself. Next, of course are the masks and necklaces.
After purchasing all of these items, I hot-glued the stars, masks, and beads onto the foil moon to make some extra bling for East Kentwood’s Mardi Gras Prom. I used a cool glue gun though as hot glue may burn through. Just an FYI.
Next, for the centerpieces, I did every other table a balloon centerpiece and a glass centerpiece. That way the balloons don’t overcrowd the event.
For the glass centerpiece, I chose a 4″ glass square vase, open at the top. I placed purple, green and gold tinsel inside and then topped it with a mask. Super cute and easy to do. Just takes time to add it all in for the 20 glass table centerpieces I did.
The other 20 table centerpieces were the balloon centerpieces, pictured above. These included the moon with three mardi gras latex balloons under it. I love the gold color on the latex balloons because it just makes everything “pop!”
As always, you have to have that fantastic entryway that may give a clue for what’s ahead. This event chose my number one seller, the Balloon Clouds. I used pearl purple, gold, and pearl emerald green Qualatex balloons with purple tulle. They are just beautiful, don’t you think?!
The Mardi Gras theme is one of my favorites. I really like anything with a lot of “BLING.” The colors really bring it all together. It’s almost like being in New Orleans for the Mardi Gras celebration. Okay, not really, but still we are getting close right?!
So what else do you think could have been added if they had an unlimited amount of money to spend on decorations? Let me know your suggestions in my comment section!
