Mustache (Moustache) Bash Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Mustache Bash Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

We admit it — for months we have been dismissing one of this year's hottest fads, Mustache Mania.  The truth is we just didn't get it.  But it is one of those fads that has definitely grown on us (pun intended).  We love the simplicity of design and actually find ourselves smiling whenever we see a “stache bash” invitation. The magnificent mustache theme is perfect for bachelor and fraternity parties, both and adult and children's birthday parties, retirement parties, and even weddings (check out that fabulous Stache + Kiss Wedding invitation below) .

Even if you don't want everything at your next party to be mustached, adding a touch of “stache” whimsy here and there will undoubtedly product quiet chuckles amongst your guests.  We promise, these little touches will not only be noticed but they will be appreciated.  Not sure that any of you noticed, but if you look closely at our new image on our welcome page, you will find a small mustache inserted under the word {Pros} – yes, we put it there just because it makes us smile!

Chalkboard Invitations, Place Cards, Table Numbers, Party & Home Decor, and  More

It doesn't take more than a minute or two perusing Pinterest to know that vintage is in.  Brides have especially been loving our vintage tin tile  outdoor wedding photography backdrops and magnetic seating charts & escort card boards.  Today we want to make sure every one is aware of the newest trend in vintage — chalkboard everything.  At first we thought it it was our personal obsession after discovering a ceiling tile chalkboard  but after my daughter called and said she painted a chalkboard wall and created 2 chalkboard side tables in her summer apartment rental, I knew I was on to something.  Izzy is always a beat or two ahead of burgeoning trends.  And then today, I opened my email and there waiting for me was a note from Tiny Prints with the subject  “Chalk it up to Birthdays”” featuring their latest fashion forward invitations.

So today we have chosen to  showcase this chic new chalkboard trend in invitations and suggest coordinating your place cards / escort cards, table numbers, party & home decor.  Once we began our quest, we were amazed at how much chalkboard “stuff” is readily available online. Plus, as Izzy could tell you, you can easily transform just about anything into a chalkboard decor yourself using a can of chalkboard paint or chalkboard peel & stick papers.

Just a note of caution – if you DIY, make sure you check the color on the container.  Turns out chalkboard paint comes in both black and green.  I wanted black but mistakenly bought green paint.  I ended up trying the green, not liking it, and repainting my ceiling tile chalkboards with the black  chalkboard spray paint.
