Stache Bash 2013!


Can you believe News Years is just a few weeks away? This year has just flown by for me! I decided since this was the "year of the Mustache" we'd celebrate it one last time.
 



I styled a party for our upcoming New Years Eve 2013 Mustache Bash!  The inspiration came about from a saying...... "Keep Calm and Stache On."  
 
I have planned this year’s party to be kid friendly so my 8 year old son can be included in the evening festivities.   
 
I love the colors black and silver so I incorporated a little gray to represent silver in my 2013 Mustache Bash Printables. 
 
Wanting a kid friendly snack and not a whole lot of sugar before and after midnight I came up with the idea of the popcorn cups.  They are a much healthier option than cupcakes or a cake.  I don't want to exclude all sugar goodies so cookies, candy coated sugar sprinkled pretzels, chocolate bars, kisses, miniatures and nuggets will coordinate very well with the saltiness of the popcorn. 
 
I thought the Martinelli's Sparking Cider would be a nice beverage touch to the table and is also non-alcoholic and kid friendly.  The plastic champagne glasses detach at the base so I used a mustache straw hugger in between the base and the cup.  I also coated the base with a little glitter for that extra sparkly touch. 
 
I used silver and black glitter foam sheets and craft sticks to create the mustache props.  These are so much fun and a must have!   
 
I had planned to use noise makers, as I always do every New Years Eve, but this year I have opted for bubbles.  My son loves bubbles and noise makers but I thought we could change tradition a little using bubbles....hence the saying that inspired this party idea "Keep Calm and Stache On."
