Babies on the Brain

AW: My SIL is going to have a kick-ass shower.

I read too many blogs, but for once it's actually coming in handy.

I found several blogs that did little boy's birthday parties with a "Little Man" theme, with mustaches and ties as decor ideas. Welll, I sorta stole that idea and ran with it. 

Invites (The Etsy seller reworked them to say "A Little Man is On His Way!" and then put in the shower info.)

image 

"Mug-staches"

image (Found a tutorial for these online, picked up the paint and mugs for cheap and I'm making them this week, filling with homemade cocoa mix and homemade marshmallows)

Mustache cupcakes:

image (I got aqua cupcake wrappers and some orange ribbon for these)

Finger-stache tattoos:

image

Necktie napkins:

image

"Welcome Little Man" Banner like this:

image

And tie onesies! (Found a tutorial on a blog to make them and I got the stuff to make one in several sizes)

image

I made some water bottle wraps that are aqua and orange polka dots w/ a mustache printed on them, and we're serving "man food" (loaded baked potato bar w/ a lot of different toppings, Italian chopped salad)

Now I just have to put it all together and make everything!

    LMAO. She got her invite in the mail today and called me in tears because she thought it was cute. I was dying laughing (because she was laughing at the fact that she was crying over a shower invite) right in the middle of the fabric store.

  • So um... where'd you find those 'stache finger tattoo things?  You know, just for purely hypothetical reasons.  It's not like I'm planning on having one on my finger at all times or anything.

  • Seriously, I abhor showers but be warned... if phantom phetus ever comes to fruition and is of the male variety... this idea will be stolen.
    Fuuck TTC - I'm moving on.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me help throw your phantom phetus shower! It would be a blast. :)

    I need more parties to plan...it's like my favorite hobby EVAR. 

    (I abhor baby showers too...I figured that by throwing it, I'd have more control over the vomit-inducing cute bunnies and rubber ducks overload that arguably consumes every shower thrown south of the Mason Dixon. Ties and mustaches and man food I can handle. Baby Pooh and pastel baby blocks, not so much)

  • Ok, that is all just too cute.

    I don't suppose you want to come to Texas and throw me a shower?  I don't really need one and I don't want gifts, I just want the cute shower.

    Women are angels. And when someone breaks our wings, well, we simply continue to fly......on a broomstick. We're flexible like that.

    Steal away!

    And please please please use the Etsy seller that I got the invites from. She was AMAZING. I ordered them at 6pm on a Tuesday night, had the proof in my email inbox by 7am Wednesday morning, and she responded at 10am that they had been sent Priority Mail. I got them on Friday. Super fast turnaround, super cute invites. And not a bad price, either.
