The Mustache Bash

I love to plan a party. And perhaps it comes from my days as a sorority girl (go ahead, judge me), but I sure do love my parties to have a theme. So when it came time to think about J’s 1st birthday party, I knew he (I) needed a theme. After pouring through ideas on Google, I came up with the Mustache Bash. When I started trying to find party supplies, I realized I was SOL because there just weren’t any to be had. Luckily for me, I’m married to a graphic designer. I found some things on Etsy, but other things I had him create for me.

To start with, I found this invitation by Bee and Daisy.

I also found these on Etsy:

I bought a few mason jars, plates, cups, napkins, and silverware–and that’s it. My husband made all the other decorations for me.

Guests were asked to write a birthday wish for James when they entered the party.

My Mom made adorable, yet manly, cupcakes.

We served Manwiches, Bowtie Salad, Cheesy Poofs, and Couch Potato Chips & Dip.

For sweet treats, we had suckers and Cigars (which would have looked much cuter had I used the big, fat pretzels–but these are what I had in my pantry, so these are what I used).

And to Wet the Guests Whiskers, we served lemonade and root beer. 

My mom also made a cute little smash cake with bowties around the sides.

My sweet boy looked like the cutest little man for his 1st birthday party!
