- Mardi Gras beads.
- Small decorated masks.
- Glow in the dark necklaces and bracelets.
- Foil covered chocolate coins wrapped in tulle.

- Have a jazz band!
- Serve spicy, Cajun food, such as jambalaya and boiled shrimp.
- Some couples ask their guests to dress up for a masquerade ball, complete with costumes and masks.
- If you don't feel comfortable asking the guests to dress for a masquerade ball, consider providing your guests with masks to wear.
