Although the Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans are the most popular, they’re far from the only city that celebrates this occasion. Dozens of cities (including ten cities in Louisiana alone) have their own Mardi Gras festivities. These celebrations include wearing throw beads, decorative masks, festive costumes and much more. The traditional colors of green, gold and purple are also staples at every celebration. If you are planning on celebrating Mardi Gras this year, there are a few things you should have to truly make this celebration special.

Yum! Delicious, isn’t it? Pictured next to this delectable King Cake, a festive food that is usually consumed during Mardi Gras celebrations, is the Mavea Filter Pitcher. You may wonder why the the Mavea Elemaris XL Purple Water Filter Pitcher is sitting next to it. You’ll need some clean filtered water to wash that delicious King Cake down and this filtered pitcher is perfect for the job. Manufactured from BPA-free plastic, this Mavea Water Filter Pitcher has a distinct design that comes in this elegant purple European style finish. It also features a Smart Meter filter change indicator for your added convenience.

During a night on the town wearing your traditional Mardi Gras beads, you will inevitably get thirsty. It will be very tempting to reach for a drink or a soda, but none of those beverages will properly hydrate your body. We suggest the Vapur Green Reflex Bottle. This completely collapsible and extremely portable water bottle can fit anywhere, which means you don’t have to carry it around. Tuck it in your bag after you finish drinking and resume the festivities.

After the celebration has ended, and you have retired your Mardi Gras mask for the year, you may be tired. Too tired to get up the next morning for work and to function throughout the day. As a result, you’ll go for the coffee. You may be surprised to discover that you’re running low on coffee filters, or even worse, completely out. This is where the Mr. Coffee Permanent Coffee Filter comes in handy.  Stop using the wasteful paper coffee filters in favor of this reusable and permanent coffee filter. It easily cleans and is dishwasher safe, making it a viable option for your home. This coffee filter will probably outlast our coffee maker! How’s that for durability?
