Mardi Gras is almost here, and King Kullen is getting its customers ready with great recipes, crafts and more on their Pinterest page. Mardi Gras presents some great opportunities for fun get-togethers with friends and trying new things. The only place to get everything needed for a fantastic Mardi Gras celebration is at King Kullen.
Everyone knows the classic Mardi Gras colors: purple, yellow and green. To make the theme of the party truly stand out, party hosts should make everything Mardi Gras-colored. Use only purple, yellow and green decorations to turn the party space into a Mardi Gras paradise. Make the food fit with the theme too by using food coloring to dye cakes, cupcakes and other treats.
To set the mood, a few simple Mardi Gras-themed decorations will do just the trick. Make good use of all those extra beads by placing them inside a vase with a candle. This will create an elegant centerpiece in a pinch. Or, try filling the vase with gold, green and purple ornaments. Get crafty with some construction paper and make masquerade masks for all the party guests. Everyone will enjoy them, and the room will easily take on a Mardi Gras look.
For food, there’s nothing that fits a Mardi Gras party more than New Orleans cuisine. With delicious Cajun spices and seafood options, guests are sure to enjoy it all. For an appetizer with a kick, try this recipe for Cajun Guacamole. Stick with something classic for the main dish and try this Jambalaya recipe.
After Mardi Gras, many people observe Lent, which means scaling diets back and lots of seafood options. King Kullen has some great seafood recipes on their Pinterest page to help those observing Lent. Pizza is a great option to feel satisfied and full without eating any meat. King Kullen recommends this recipe for Skinny Avocado Pizza. Or try adding shrimp for a delicious seafood pizza.
