This Father’s Day was my darling husband’s first. It only happens once… So we hosted a brunch for family.
My goal: Create a theme that was appropriate for dads… then I got to thinking… My dad has a mustache, Joe’s dad has a mustache, Joe’s brother (who’s a dad) has a mustache/beard… and Joe hadn’t shaved in a while so he had a mustache… put that together with some ideas I’ve seen on Pinterest.. and BOOM
MUSTACHE BASH for
I’m a relatively new pinner… but I love to browse and I’ve seen tons of things that have inspired me. I will do my best to give credit where credit is due and I apologize if its not the original creator… but I think I’ve gotten it all correct
All of the graphic’s I made myself… the theme was inspired by the following: KPI, & APTG
The Party Spread
Just the banner
Detailed view of banner… I used scrapbook paper for the background and my design on top. I loved the woodgrain paper! Totally manly!
The gifts: 3. 2. 1. cake inspired by TMB
.. I made a sample first and fell in LOVE!! This is a very awesome gift idea. Especially for those with a sweet tooth! I printed the instructions on the back of these handmade ties.
Cinnamon Cookies, purchased.. honestly because they matched my color scheme…
They were yummy too!
And the cupcakes! The recipe can be found here VG
. After baking a test cupcake with frosting…
My husband decided we should add cayenne to the frosting for that extra
some… I have to say it was a very tasty addition!
Cupcake stand was made by me (by hand) thanks to a wonderful tutorial from: AE
Mustache Straws!!! Great detail inspired by WBS
These were the thank you’s, mustache shaped coco rice krispie treats. I made a normal batch of treats
then carved out each mustache. Wrapped them up in a ziploc baggie and glued a label that said
“Have a Fan-stache-tic Father’s Day”
They were a hit
And last but not least mustache props… these I’ve seen all over the internet so its honestly hard to pin point one person to credit… so I think I’ll just credit google..
