For my son’s first birthday, we threw him a Little Man party. I chose blue and green as the colors. The party featured mustaches, bow ties, ties, suspenders, and argile. Above (and below here) you can see the mustache’s I made on a stick. My main DIY items included mustaches both on long sticks (bamboo skewers) and short sticks (popsicle sticks – for the kids), party hats (see above), party favor bags (brown paper bags with ties on them above), and party bunting (see below).
My sister made this lovely cake (below). The quote being the smash cake. Check out her baking blog, The Rookie’s Cookies.
The food was one of my favorite parts of this party: a grilled cheese station. We had several choices of breads and cheeses with many different add-on items. Guests then “grilled” their sandwiches on our electric griddle. We came up with a few good sandwiches and named them after manly mustache men.
