Channel the spirit of New Orleans with a Mardi Gras party


New Orleans is one of the livliest cities in the United States, if not the world. The music, the food and the people all make the city a great place to go for a celebration. Of course, the time of year when The Big Easy is the craziest is during Mardi Gras. Although Fat Tuesday is still months away, that does not mean you can't indulge you and your friends and family by hosting a wonderful Mardi Gras-themed party. Getting everybody you care about together for a carefree extravaganza can be the perfect way to relieve the stress caused by everyday life.

Say 'bonjour!' to a great midsummer Mardi Gras party


Mardi Gras is one of the most unique celebrations the world has to offer. Despite originating overseas, thanks to a rich cultural tradition in Louisiana and Mississippi, it has continued in America. Ever since the French settled in the late 16th century, the annual blowout before Ash Wednesday is one of the biggest parties in United States, especially in the Gulf Coast. Although it is months away from the actual celebration of Mardi Gras, that does not mean you cannot host a midsummer Mardi Gras party of your own that is sure to be magnifique.

It's not too late to celebrate Mardi Gras!


Mardi Gras is upon us! And, as if the annual event could get any more wild and carefree, the streets of New Orleans are also full of sports fans celebrating their Super Bowl win.

Mardi Gras traditions from around the globe


Mardi Gras as we know it, or "Fat Tuesday," is the celebration of excess and pleasures of the flesh before the traditionally somber Lenten season. However, for thousands of years, people have been ushering in the spring time and a new year with revelries and festivals. In fact, many of today's Mardi Gras celebrations stem from the traditional vernal parties.
