Spring is such a busy month for us here in the Richardson household. Birthdays left and right around here…crazy…but oh so fun! We had the joys of planning our little guy’s first birthday party and because he’s our little man, what better way to celebrate than with a Little Man themed party?! Perfect, yes?
The invitation had to be as unique as our little guy, and of course boxed. What is a perfect way to represent a proper little man, you ask? Well, a prim and proper bow tie and a perfectly maintained mustache, silly! The bowties were made by hand and attached underneath the mustache with the saying: “I mustache you a questions….are you ready for some fun? Trey Richardson is turning ONE!”
Each label was adorned with that same neatly trimmed mustache with the recipients name and address underneath. Would like you to purchase this invite? Find the Little Man invitation HERE.
The second thing after sending out the invitations to take care of, his attire. Now, this mama loves anything vintage, so I carried that on to the party. His hat was a newsboy cap that my aunt found at, of all places, Goodwill. It’s from Gymboree, but I couldn’t tell you how old it is. His bow tie I purchased from Jameson Monroe.(How freaking cute is it?!) The shirt and the pants I got from GapKids.
Then, the decor!
I used kraft letters I found at Hobby Lobby to spell out his name above the table. I also found vintage cars and trucks along with gas pumps. It added the perfect look to a Little Man theme. I mean, seriously, isn’t that what little boys are made of? None of that puppy tails and snails stuff here. The candies I got in bulk from Groovy Candy. I bought cola flavored gummies and orange and brown sixlets to stick with the color scheme. I bought a mustache lollipop mold from Ebay and just used the Wilton candy melts to make the lollies. You can find the same mold here. I created the stickers for the bags using the same mustache design I used on the invitations.
The cutest thing from the party were the favor bags. My aunt is a sewing genius is always come to my aide when I request something. This time, I asked for bags that mimic shaving bags. My aunt took it one step further and added the mustaches from “furry” fabric. How freaking cool are these?!?! Thanks Aunt Kathy! You did a wonderful job!
Stay tuned for details on the food and photo booth!
