Mardi Gras Throws and Giveaways

When you’re preparing for your Mardi Gras parade, party, or office event, take advantage of the traditions surrounding the holiday, like colorful bead necklaces, to find some great Mardi Gras throw ideas or fun gift bag concepts. Whether you are looking for bulk Mardi Gras supplies for your event, or themed Mardi Gras party favors, Crestline has you covered.

mardi gras cup

1. Mardi Gras Cups

Go cups are a big part of Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans. Add the name of your bar or restaurant, the year, and a Mardi Gras illustration to jewel toned tumblers, and your customers can dance down the street with your creations.

If you are throwing a Mardi Gras party, avoid the frustration of the piles and piles of disposable party cups scattered about. Custom Mardi Gras cups that are sturdy and reusable are the solution. That way, Mardi Gras cups personalized with the name of your event become a more sustainable alternative to hundreds of flimsy plastic cups.  At the end of your event, they’ll become eco-friendly Mardi Gras mementos that guests can bring home.

Our 16 oz Cups-On-The-Go Stadium Cup is more than just an economical replacement for disposable party cups. With the option to customize the outside, these Mardi Gras plastic cups come in colors that are perfect for your party, parade, or office event.

Because these beads are easy to find and affordable, they’re great Mardi Gras throws on a budget.

6. Mardi Gras Can Coolers

Cold drinks add a lot to any party. They’re something for guests to sip on during conversations, parades, games, and speeches. They’re also a great addition to any snack table, especially if you’re not planning on serving a full meal. Purchasing canned or bottled drinks may make the most sense for your Mardi Gras event. Spice up your beverages with Mardi Gras custom can coolers so that your guests can enjoy cold drinks for longer.

However you choose to design them, t-shirts give event attendees something to take home and wear out on later occasions. Though t-shirts might be a more expensive giveaway option, purchasing Mardi Gras shirts wholesale will cut down on costs. Our Bella + Canvas™ Modern Fit T-Shirt fits a variety of body types, making it a great option for event organizers who don’t want to spend time trying to purchase different styles.

Pins, stickers, and magnets are cheap Mardi Gras throws that are small and easy to customize. Guests can decorate their outfits with our 2 1/4" Round Button Pin, stick our Roll Stickers/Decal Indoor Permanent 4" Diameter Round somewhere special, or use our Imprinted Round Button Magnet to hold up the refrigerator shopping list.
