The Mustache Bash


For Rhys's first birthday, we had a mustache bash at our house today. I really get into party planning and we had been working on a "little man" theme for a while. It eventually turned into an old fashioned mustache bash!

best musatches in the house!

We set up outside and brought our old dining room chairs out for lots of seating. Both mine and Pj's families are full of party drinkers so I made some delicious whiskey sour punch and fruit punch for the wee ones. I made mustaches on sticks, drink straws and set up a little photo booth for mustache pics. Pj's mom made a gorgeous, delicious cake and we all had a wonderful time!

manly goody bags

the kind of punch that knocks you out!

teaching toddlers to use a bubble pipe was....interesting . My phrase of the day was "blow out, not in!!"
 Oh, that's Olivia first vintage dress! I found it at Brenda Sue's a few weeks ago. It fits perfectly and has a rhinestone buckle to match one of my favorite dresses. Do I see vintage family photos in the future?

Now that the party is over, I'll be getting back to blogging this week. Daffny from A Vintage Nerd is coming to see me, all the way from the Big Apple. She arrives on Thursday and is staying with me all weekend.  I cannot wait to meet her in person and take her on a vintage tour of my hometown!

  5. This is too fantastically cute for words! I'll be smiling all night as I think about these ultra fun 1st birthday bash photos. :)

    Sweet dear, did you get my email a few days ago in reply to yours from a little while ago? There was a major hiccup with my email addresses lately (my Chronically Vintage one stopped forwarding to my personal email for some unknown reason and I didn't catch it for about three weeks, which means I didn't see any of my CV messages during that time), and so (embarrassingly) I didn't see your lovely message at first (I'm so sorry about that). Hope you got my reply, if not, let me know and I'll send it again.

    Oodles of hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  6. LOL I love these photos! I was starting to wonder if it was just me...I was seeing moustaches everywhere! Apparently they're in again? :p

  7. How fun! I wish I would have spied this post before my Matty's first birthday which was also a mustache party. They are so in right and so cute I just had to follow the trend on this! What great ideas you had.


I read every single comment (even on old posts) and they make my day! If you have a question, please email me at Thank you for reading me!
