Moustache Bash / Mustache party
Stash it to 'em with this unusual kids party idea
Everything is better with a moustache, especially a kids birthday party! So go ahead
and celebrate pop's 'stache. However you spell mustache / moustache you can have a
party like no other. As kids parties go, this one will be most memorable, but adults can
have fun too. And pulling off a moustache party for kids is easier than you might expect.
When you think of it, there are a lot of kids characters who wear moustaches. For
starters there's Super Mario Brothers (both Mario and Luigi have moustaches). Even Mr.
Potato Head wears a moustache! And then there's the classic Wooly Willy magnetic toy
kids have loved for generations.
- Pick a moustache. As kids arrive, have them pick a moustache to wear. There are
so many varieties, above. Be sure to have lots of mirrors on hand as everyone
will want to see themselves in a moustache. For starters, try the "Fu-manchu"
moustache, handlebar moustache, Dali style moustache or Super Mario
moustache. If Dad doesn't already have a moustache, he can grow one just for
this unusual party theme. Even Mom can sport a pink moustache.
- Moustache photo opportunity. A colorful moustache on a stick provides a photo
opportunity! Set up a photo booth and have guests pick their own moustache
stick, pictured left. Create thank you cards with the pictures of guests.
- This party isn't cookie cutter, but you'll need one. The moustache shaped cookie
cutter, left is essential to your party. Use the moustache cookie cutter to trace a
moustache for your invitations. As a stencil, the cookie cutter is also invaluable
for helping you make moustache decorations. Use them to trace onto brown,
black, grey and yellow construction paper, then cut your moustaches to put on
sticks, on walls, and on presents. It's also useful for making fairy wings or angel
wings during the holidays.
- Find a stash of supplies. Head to ETSY.com for moustache party supplies where
you'll find funny moustache novelties -- from moustache glasses, moustache
cupcake toppers, paper moustaches on a stick -- even moustache crayons. Have

them pose for a group milk moustache photo.
- Moustache cake. Bake a black and white cake (chocolate cake with white icing)
and decorate simply with a chocolate moustache on a stick or a paper moustache
on a stick. Fondant is easy to shape as well. Use a cookie cutter to cut black
fondant into moustache shape for cookies, cupcakes or the birthday cake.
