Once again, the folks of New Orleans have been slinging beads and eating their weight in powdery beignet goodness all week in celebration of Mardi Gras. Tomorrow, Fat Tuesday, marks the final day of unabashed indulgence before Christians everywhere begin the forty days of Lenten temperance and fasting. Jump on the “Big Easy” bandwagon and grab the girls; this is the perfect time leave your inhibitions at home and celebrate your final days as a bachelorette. Be the queen of your own parade of bridesmaids, and let everyone know who deserves the most beads with a bride to be bachelorette sash and veil! Make your bachelorette party Mardi Gras themed any day of the year with festive masks, face paint, crazy costumes, lots of beads (of course) and the traditional New Orleans Mardi Gras colors: purple, green and gold.
Where to buy: Masquerade Invitations; Personalized Aluminum Water Bottles to keep your guest hydrated (and hangover free); Rhinestone Evening Shoe; Bachelorette Sash and Veil (Deal of the Week)
