The mardi gras baby shower theme

Gras baby shower theme ideas

Use the Mardi Gras baby shower theme to add some flare and
southern hospitality to your party. The standard mardi gras colors are
purple, green and gold. So, for a baby shower, you can use those same
colors as-is, or use pastels. As soft lavender, mint green and pastel
yellow will compliment each other nicely for both boys and girls.

Use gold or pastel yellow paper, and accent your decorations with the
other 2 colors. Black wording will probably be best as it will show up
nicely on the bright paper.

tablecloth, or lavender and mint green if you are using the pastel
color scheme.
-Large Mardi Gras mask.
-Pastel colored baby shower or Mardi Gras confetti or strands of beads.

Guest tables:
-Use various colors at each table. For example, a mint green tablecloth

dark purple tableware for one table.
