Additional Mardi Gras Invitation Ideas
While the printable invitations above provide an affordable and easy invitation option for Mardi Gras parties, they're not the only solution. Consider one of the options below if you're looking for other Mardi Gras invitation ideas.
- Mardi Gras mask invitations: Use one of these Mardi Gras mask templates to make creative invitations. Include details about the party on the back of the mask or attach one of the printable designs to the handmade mask by tying it to the elastic band or eye-hole with festive ribbons in Mardi Gras colors. Postage is an important consideration with this option; you may want to use this kind of invitation only if you'll be handing out invitations in person.
- Coloring page invitations: For a more personalized touch than a printable template, use one of these Mardi Gras coloring pages to form the basis of your invitation design. Print the basic invitation wording on the back, and either have your child color the image or leave it blank and ask party guests to color it in and bring it to the event to receive a prize or goodie bag!
- Email invitations: If you don't want to have to worry about printing, postage, or delivery, an email invitation is a great way to let your guests know about your upcoming Mardi Gras party. Evite and Paperless Post are examples of resources where you can find several pre-designed email invitations for various types of Mardi Gras gatherings.
Mardi Gras Invitation Wording Tips
In addition to the party invitation basics (location, host, date, time, etc.), there are a few other considerations to keep in mind when deciding what to say on a Mardi Gras party invitation. You may want to mention things like:
- Whether guests should wear a Mardi Gras costume to the festivities
- If there are any special parking considerations (especially if the party is near the parade route)
- Whether the party is BYOB or if the host will be providing Mardi Gras drinks
- What types of Mardi Gras food will be provided and if guests should bring a dish
Let the Good Times Roll
Let the good times roll this year, and throw an awesome Mardi Gras party. Just set the date, and let everyone know with the invitation of your choice. You'll be on your way to hosting an event to remember!
