Mustache Party for my one year old!

The pics from the great Mustache Bash are FINALLY done!

Even though the lead up was fairly stressful, I had a great time. I blogged about the invitations, goody bags, mustache crayons, party mix and inspiration, but here is the proof that it actually did happen!

Admittedly, I went a little overboard with the theme, but if you're going to get wet, you may as well go swimming!

Here's my take on the mini-bunting craze. Yup, mustaches! I just hot glued some die cuts to some bakers twine and suspended it between 2 straws.

...and the mini milk bottles (Italian juice bottles, cleaned and labels soaked off)

Mo toothpicks (excuse the back side of them here)

I made these mo' plates by printing a gif onto some clear mailing labels, then cutting them out and sticking them onto clear plates. The napkins were done using one of the stamps I made.

The menu (for about 30 people!!) was:
  • Chocolate Cake (also made a sheet cake because there were so many people)
  • Popcorn in popcorn bags
  • Asparagus and Zucchini Frittata
  • Falafel with Tahini dip
  • Veggies
  • Blue Cheese Dip
  • Hummus
  • Grissini
  • Watermelon in the shape of mustaches (cookie cutter)
  • 2 types of mustache shaped cookies - I made some and a dear friend brought some. Her's were tastier
  • Melting Moments (a delish Australian cookie, they melt in your mouth)
  • Sandies, courtesy of Mark (Rachel's husband)
  • Leb Bread chips - Lebanese bread brushed with EVOO, sprinkled with Lemon Pepper, then baked
  • Party Mix
  • Clementines
  • Chocolate milk
  • Various other soft drinks

...And here's the birthday boy, enjoying some falafel and chocolate cake. Mmmmm, good combo, Mum!
