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).

Glitter Candle Votives
Battery operated candles dipped in gold and silver sparkles—placed inside votives filled with purple, green and yellow confetti—are what Mardi Gras tablescape dreams are made of. Jessica, a contributor for Best Friends For Frosting, made the simple and festive candles in just a few minutes, but the end result is truly stunning.

When Cristy of Pretty My Party asked Emily—the designer behind Magnolia Creative Co.—to style a Mardi Gras party, she made sure to tie every element of the table into the theme. Front and center on the tablescape is a brass bowl filled with purple, green and gold ornaments, with coordinating coins to boot.
