The fake mustache is all the rage these days – whether an irreverent accessory or silly sticker, the mustache is popping up almost everywhere. Adults and kids alike enjoy its appeal, so if you’re looking for a fun theme for your child’s next birthday party, consider the mustache!
Who says kids are the only ones allowed to have fun at their birthday parties? Don a fake mustache sticker and guests will be laughing as soon as they see you (keep a straight, serious face for further comedic effect).
Hosting a party outside allows a lot more options for games – and if your party is in the park, you won’t need to worry about spills on your carpet!
When guests arrive, direct them to a location where they can put on a stick-on ‘stache or draw one on with face paints. If you’d rather keep the silliness to just part of the party, get a few of the glasses-and-mustache combo disguises and have guests run a mustache obstacle course relay, passing along the ‘stache to the next person in line like a relay baton.
Outdoor parties encourage simple food, so just add mustaches to fit the theme. One idea is to serve hot dogs and have each guest draw a ketchup mustache on the hot dog before eating it. It’s easy to turn a round cake into a mustache cake with some artful cutting and all-over frosting.
Send guests home with some great mustache-themed favors, like bracelets, stencils, cookie cutters, or mustache cake pops. For a really inexpensive addition to a party favor bag, add a printable disguise kit that features several styles of mustaches. Have fun and be creative with ideas for inexpensive party favors!
Hosting a birthday party isn’t about how much you spend, but about how much fun you can have. A lighthearted party that uses creativity and laughter for the entertainment is a great choice. You won’t soon forget the mustache party, and the photos will keep you giggling for years.
