Mustache parties and baby showers are all the rage recently! This charming theme, while a little silly, is actually a lot of fun for you and all your guests. Whether you include them as photo booth props at your next birthday party or the centerpiece of a baby shower for a little boy, like our Creative Contributor, Paula Biggs of Frog Prince Paperie is sharing today, you can’t go wrong with the iconic mustache!
My sweet friend Richelle needed a celebration to mark the upcoming arrival of her second child–and since she was having a little boy, I took the opportunity to try out the mustache craze everyone is so excited about!
When throwing a mustache party, it is very difficult not to put a mustache on everything that moves. But I did it anyway…because it was too much fun not to. This hairy decor ended up being thoroughly appreciated by the mom-to-be and all our guests.
Since the mustache was such an overwhelming part of the presentation of this party, it didn’t lend itself to requiring a lot of time being crafty. So I was free to focus on my big “wow” factor–the food! Shower food is always the best, and I was able to make every last thing from scratch for this event.
Chocolate creme brûlée sat along side a chocolate truffle buttercrunch cake (recipe here) and chocolate cupcakes–mom had a bit of a chocolate craving!
For savories, offerings included bacon wrapped stuffed dates (details here), wasabi and crab vegetable roll ups, hot ham and swiss rolls, and balsamic basil strawberries. No one left hungry!
The favors were my favorite part of the party after the food. I had some black vinyl cut into mustache shapes and the vinyl was applied to the side of a pint glass. There are a dozen in my cabinet now, they are so much fun. My coffee mugs may or may not have been mustached as well after doing this craft!
This was such a fun party and the lighthearted theme really made the baby shower so much more enjoyable.
