Mardi Gras Mahjong Night

Happy Mardi Gras!

To celebrate Fat Tuesday, I wanted to share the Mardi Mahj girls night I hosted last week. My goodness, the Mardi Gras theme was SO fun to pull together!

The evening was filled with yummy snacks, festive French 75 cocktails, jazzy vibes, cozy attire (no pants with buttons allowed) and LOTS of mahjong.

Admittedly, I know very little about Mardi Gras traditions. However, I’m married to a man who lived in New Orleans for several years and knew to put the baby IN the King Cake for me!

Side note: If you are trying to track down a King Cake around Mardi Gras, Publix carries them for less than $15!

I always love to scatter snacks around our mahjong table. Here was my line-up: Popcorn, Nerds Gummy Clusters, Werther’s (our old lady candy requirement for every mahjong night), Unreal Dark Chocolate Covered Peanut Gems, MadeGood Chocolate Chip Cookies and White Fudge Dipped Pretzels (that I drizzled with lavender candy melts).

My Shopping List

I found beads, coins, and napkins at Party City. The final touch was yellow and purple tulips.

For our French 75 cocktails, I used Empress 1908 Indigo Gin to give it that gorgeous purple color. These were SUCH a big hit! You can never go wrong with a French 75 though, am I right? Even if you aren’t a gin drinker, I promise this cocktail doesn’t have any gin taste at all!

Indigo French 75

  • 1.5 oz Empress 1908 Indigo Gin
  • 3/4 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
  • 2-3 oz Champagne
  • Garnish with Lemon Twist

It was the perfect mahjong night with girlfriends! You can find a few video snippets of our night HERE!
