March 01, 2019

Mardi Gras New Orleans festivities are heating up. While Shrove Tuesday isn’t until March 5th, plenty of people have begun partying. If you’re celebrating a Mardi Gras weekend 2019, you’re going to take a ton of pictures. Between the elaborate parades and the masquerade balls, there’s a lot to take in, and you’re going to need some clever Mardi Gras Instagram captions.

The people of Bourbon Street don snazzy Mardi Gras attire, show off impressive Mardi Gras face paint, and pile on beads by the dozen. And did we mention the food? You’re going to be eating tons of traditional New Orleans dishes like boiled crawfish, gumbo, jambalaya, po’boys, and beignets. That’s no surprise, considering the city is one of the best places to travel for good eats and delicious Instagram-worthy brunches. But even if you’re just attending a Mardi Gras parade in your hometown or snacking on ALL of the King Cake, you’re going to need some great captions for your pics.

Fortunately, there are lots of Mardi Gras sayings that make for great caption ideas for Instagram. And, like we said: You don’t need to party down on the famous Bourbon Street in NOLA to have a great Mardi Gras. All you need is a yummy King Cake, some strong cocktails, and a ton of beads. However you celebrate, these clever Mardi Gras Instagram captions will make it clear that you’re the life of the party (gras).

1. “Beads and bling: It’s a Mardi Gras thing.”

There are two must-haves for every Mardi Gras outfit: beads and bling. Show off yours!

2. “King Cake calories don’t count.”

Truer words have never been spoken. Incidentally, beignet calories don’t count, either.

3. “Life of the Mardi.”

Life of the party? More like, life of the Mardi.

4. “Everywhere else, it’s just Tuesday.”

This Instagram caption is perfect for your Fat Tuesday day-of celebration. Because everywhere else, it’s just Tuesday.

5. “Throw me something!”

And make it beads, please! Lots and lots of beads.

6. “Laissez les bons temps rouler, bienvenue.”

Translation: Let the good times roll, y’all. This one is as Louisianan as it gets.

7. “There is nothing King Cake can’t fix.”

Truly. Nothing.

8. “Beads or it didn’t happen.”

Got beads? Show ’em off!

9. “Beignet, done that.”

We love a good food-based pun. If you celebrate Mardi Gras in N’awlins, you’ll definitely have a few beignets.

10. “Welcome, tourist.”

If you’re a NOLA local, it’s okay to have some fun with tourists. They’re everywhere this time of year.

11. “It’s Carnival time!”

The lead-up to Mardi Gras is also called Carnival. Have we mentioned that we LOVE King Cake?

12. “New year, new me…after Mardi Gras.”

Just when you thought you’d implemented your New Year’s resolutions to eat well and exercise, along came Mardi Gras. That’s okay, there’s always next month.

13. “We don’t hide crazy, we parade it down the street.”

You never know what you’re going to see at a Mardi Gras parade. That’s why this is the perfect caption.

14. “Five Eaux Feaux.”

This is a tongue-in-cheek way to say “504,” a.k.a. the New Orleans area code. It’s a great caption if you’re hanging in the “five eaux feaux.”

15. “Will run for King Cake.”

Like we said, King Cake calories don’t count. But we’re still willing to run for a slice if necessary.

16. “Mardi craw.”

Save this one for your pics from a crawfish boil. Yum!

17. “Rue Bourbon.”

“Rue Bourbon,” which translates to “Bourbon Street,” is the center of all the action in the French Quarter. Captioning your pics from Bourbon Street with the French spelling is a must.

18. “The best things in life are meant to be shared. Especially King Cake.”

You can never post too many pics of King Cake. Especially if you get the piece with the baby.

19. “Happy Mardi Gras!”

Simple, effective, and to the point. Be sure to throw in a fleur de lis emoji for good measure.

However you’re celebrating, these fun Mardi Gras Instagram captions are sure to be a hit on your feed. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
