Credits (clockwise, from top left):

Bead coasters with charms– What an ingenious way to incorporate the infamous Mardi Gras beads!

Beignets– Respect to the Saints, but as far as I’m concerned these fluffy fried donuts are the best things about New Orleans.

Hurricane– Make sure you have plenty of taxis at the ready if you serve this New Orleans cocktail.

King cake– A Fat Tuesday tradition, King Cakes hide a charm on the inside and are decorated with icing and purple, gold, and green sugar sprinkles.

Feather shoes– If big feather centerpieces aren’t your thing, incorporate feathers on your accessories (such as these gorgeous shoes).

Bourbon Street– Okay, so you probably can’t hold your reception right on Bourbon Street, but the picture was just so pretty.
