Idea 1: Use beads to make a DIY chandelier masterpiece!

Create your own Mardi Gras hanging decoration with beads, beads, beads! All you need is beaucoup necklaces, a hot glue gun and your imagination. Drape, hang and dangle them in cool color patterns and unique designs – it's up to you! We snipped strands and glued them around the edge of a big bowl in color-block rows to create this chic chandelier shape. Add gobs of oversized beads, big pendants and doubloons for your glam pièce de résistance!

Idea 2: Three ways to create centerpieces with bead "throws"!

More than just a decoration, bead necklaces in giant cocktail glasses double as grab-and-go-party Mardi Gras accessories for the krewe! Add a bright green, purple and gold masquerade mask and tuck in a spray centerpiece for glitz worthy of the Queen of Carnival. The perfect complement to your French Quarter fête!

Idea 3: Decorate champagne buckets with masks and beads!

Champagne gets a *pop* of Carnival color! A clear ice bucket dressed up with green, purple and gold bead necklaces and a feathered mask doubles as a glam table centerpiece for Mardi Gras. We love green champagne flutes paired with a harlequin table runner for this Louisiana look. Let the good times roll… and the drinks flow!

Idea 4: Floral sheeting + mask = "wow"

A big gold masquerade mask – so New Orleans – pops against a gleaming purple background for a shiny, parade float-worthy display. It's easy (the Big Easy!): simply mount floral sheeting on a wall and complete the layered look with the mask, front and center. Trés bon!

Idea 5: Let the bright times roll!

Set a southern scene in glitzy gold, purple and green for Fat Tuesday! Glam it up with ideas for amazing decorations, from table decor to balloons, and get your krewe ready for revelry with colorful Mardi Gras wearable ideas like feathered masks and regal Rex robes.

Idea 6: Jazz up the party with easy balloon columns!

A balloon tower + scene setters = French Quarter fun! With our simple Spiral Balloon Column How-To and a New Orleans crowd scene setter, you can create your very own gateway to the Mardi Gras celebration. Prefer a more traditional photo backdrop? Try a green, purple and gold harlequin scene setter – tr'es chic!
