It’s officially time to gather your krewe and start planning your Mardi Gras! Along with many things this year, we know the festival may not look the same, but we promise it will be just as fun to celebrate at home. Every Mardi Gras must include a few essentials – beaded necklaces, a King’s Cake, great food, fun cocktails, and Two Funny Girls party products! Read on for a few of our favorites to make your 2021 Mardi Gras the best yet.
For the full lineup of Mardi Gras goodies, make sure to head to our online shop.
We’ll skip right to the good part – cocktails for your krewe. One of the most traditional festival cocktails is also a New Orleans staple. To transform your living room into The French Quarter, whip up a few Hurricanes! Even better? You only need a few ingredients and a large pitcher – be prepared to make a few, because these rarely last long.
2 ounces light rum
2 ounces dark rum
1 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 ounce orange juice, freshly squeezed
½ ounce passion fruit puree
½ ounce simple syrup
1 barspoon grenadine
Garnish: orange wheel
Garnish: preserved cherry
Add the light and dark rums, lime and orange juices, passion fruit puree, simple syrup and grenadine into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
Strain into a personalized frosted roadie cup over fresh ice.
Garnish with an orange half-wheel and a preserved cherry.
Personalize Your Party
It’s never a party without custom cups, at least that’s our mindset here at Two Funny Girls! If you’re looking for something perfectly personalized, go for one of our shatterproof or frosted plastic options.
Pro Tip? We always love using these custom Mardi Gras cups as a gift for your host – they come in a sleeve of ten and arrive with a ribbon tie for ready to gift packaging!
We’re excited to unveil a few new Mardi Gras cup designs this year, too – including these styrofoam ready to ship packs.
Serve Something Sweet!
Serve up your King’s Cake in style with custom Mardi Gras napkins. These 3-ply paper napkin packs come in a few different designs and color options to match your party perfectly.
You could say we’ve become professionals at planning the best parties at home this year – and Mardi Gras is just one more to add to the list! Get festival ready by purchasing your custom orders ahead of time so we can get them to your doorstep in time.
