Hosting a Mardi Gras party this year? You do not need to head to New Orleans to bring the sites and sounds of a Fat Tuesday celebration to your house party. You do need the right music, food, drinks, decor and invitations to set the tone for your festivities. The details of a great party can become expensive! There are a number of great free Mardi Gras invitations available online to allow you to spend more of your party budget on food and drinks without sacrificing the importance of invitation quality.
Pingg. The website holds one of the best free Mardi Gras invitation collections available. The graphics of the cards and the ease of use of the site make it a great option for last minute party invitations. Whether looking for a simple mask design with traditional Mardi Gras colors or a colorful array of beads , there is a unique card available. The site does not include as many free bells and whistles, such as customized envelopes or music, without a membership-but, it is a great option for creative, visually appealing free invitations.
Punchbowl. Punchbowl.com has quickly become a favorite for customizable e-invitations and party planning. The site offers only a few free Mardi Gras invitations http://www.punchbowl.com/digital-invitations/e227c7b4faaa78afca0d#view=details -but, they are nicely done and very easy to customize and send. Choose from the simple, Mardi Gras mask in traditional colors or a more feminine mask and bead graphic, customize the event details, personalize the digital envelope colors-and even the digital postage and rubber stamp greetings.
Evite. The site has only a few electronic invitations for Mardi Gras themed parties, but they are very simple to customize and send and offer users lots of free “extras”. The site offers the ability to add maps, personalized guest polls for host inspiration, and a custom music play list to the invitations. Evite also has several party planning ideas, music suggestions and more to help plan themed events.
123Greetings. While the site does not offer traditional Mardis Gras invitations, it does have several Mardi Gras themed cards that may be personalized with party details and invite style wording. The colorful Mardi Gras ecard brings the sights and sounds of Mardi Gras to a customizable greeting that is perfect for use as an informal invitation. Unfortunately, the site is a bit intensive with pop-up advertising-but, that should be expected for a site offering quality free ecards.
Blue Mountain. One of the best free Mardi Gras cards on the site is a simple animated greeting, Mardi Gras Road Trip. Again, this is not a traditionally worded invitation-but, it is a cute little greeting to customize and use to invite out of town guests to take a little road trip and visit Mardi Gras at your house! The free greetings can either be emailed to recipients or posted to Facebook.
Remember that the invitation gives guests an all important first impression of your party–so, be sure to select a greeting that reflects both your personality and the mood of the upcoming event.
