The colorful coins that are a part of almost every Mardi Gras celebration have deep roots in the holiday’s tradition. Mary of Home is Where the Boat Is filled a clear bowl with the purple, green and yellow doubloons (a cheap steal at Party City), with a few beads scattered throughout.

Disco Ball Plate Toppers
In lieu of a centerpiece, Alycia of Tablescapes at Twenty-One dressed up the table at her Mardi Gras bash by placing a purple napkin and beads into each wine glass, topping off every plate with a purple, yellow or green miniature disco ball.

Mardi Gras Snack Mix
The best kind of centerpiece is an edible centerpiece—especially when it’s something as tasty and versatile as the snack mix that Sharon of Grits and Pine Cones made for her Mardi Gras get together. It’s also extremely easy to replicate, since you can swap out the snacks she used for your favorite ones instead (or the ones you already have in your kitchen pantry).
