Yes, another party post. We've had a lot to celebrate lately.
We used to call D "little-old-man" so a "manly" themed birthday party seemed like a good idea for his first. Besides, how could I not make chocolate mustaches once I saw them?
If you are my Facebook friend you've already seen these, but I figured I'd post anyway. I got so many great ideas for this party on-line so I had to give back. This party was actually a month ago, but I've had computer issues.
Sharpies + latex balloons made for some cheap and theme appropriate decor.
Itty bitty moustache stamps were purchased from Skull and Crossbuns on Etsy. (Used them on the cupcake picks and thank you notes.) Mustache Lolly Candy Molds were found on Amazon. (This is an affiliate link.) Here's the recipe I used for the cupcakes. Healthier than usual and they were a big hit with everyone. I did top them with regular cream cheese frosting though. I made D's shirt using a tutorial I found here.
And I didn't get a good picture of it, but I cut out mustache shapes from black construction paper and taped them to the mirrors in the house. tee-hee
