Mustache Bash

I have a little treat for you today...
Yesterday was our Miss A's 8th birthday
she celebrated it with a few of her friends...

These were her party decorations....
a little girl's version of a 
Glittery Pink  Mustache Bash.
A few weeks ago
asked me if I would like to use one of their party in a crate themes
to see what I could come up with.
Knowint that Miss A had a birthday coming up quickly
I asked her to choose the theme she would like...
She chose their Mustache Crate which
you can view here.

The crate

arrived in a packing box
with the following items in it...
Fingerstaches by Gama-Go
Mustache Lollipop Molds and Sticks by Wilton
Mustache Chalkboard Decals by ArtofVinyl
Chalboard Paint by DecoArt
Party Hats.

I am going to break this post down into several posts
as there
are a few tutorials I am going to do.

Almost every thing you see here was handcrafted
by myself and with my families assistance in a few things...
I had so much fun putting this together...
There will be a separate tutorial on the
Mustache Bash Banner
as it has several steps to it...
But, it is basically made from drop cloth fabric
paper and glitter.

The large flowers are pinwheels I made from paper
(which I have a tutorial coming up on how to do)
then wooden stems were constructed by my son.

The left side of the table has jars embellished with bits
around the house
filled with candies
including the chocolate mustache suckers
(made with Wilton's mold and lollipop sticks).
Here you can also see
paper cups with the
Mustache Chalkboard Decals
that we outlined with glitter
wrote each girls name in chalk.

On the right side are the party hats
we painted with
DecoArt's Chalkboard Paint
then embellished with pink pinwheels
glittered mustaches...
Along with a tin bucket
filled with
Paper Pinwheel Flowers
Glittery Mustaches on sticks.
The white paper filling is actually the packing from the box
all the mustache goodies came in...

(This picture was taken with her actual birthday cake as it was
an ice cream cake and I was afraid it might melt during our photo taking time.)

Great fun was had by all the little girls
( no pics due to their privacy).
But, let's just say several mothers
want to
borrow the decor for their little girls parties...

So, did you ever think mustaches would become
a trendy girl's party theme?
Or, a preteen and teen trend as far as that goes...
Funny, what kids find so much fun
I have to admit I had a lot of fun doing this....
