Include party photos!
Grab an antique picture frame (or make one of your own) and have the guests take pictures behind it as they arrive! Grab some accessories you have on hand (costume jewelry, hats, ties, gloves, etc…) and let the guests use them to take commemorative photographs!
A game children and adults will surely love! When you're guests arrive hand them a mustache (tattoo, on a stick, double sided tape, etc). Whenever they have the mustache on suggest that they speak in an outrageous accent. (Encourage the adults to do this first. The kids will eventually join in)
Grab our pull string Mustache piñata (all the fun with none of the hassle) and let guest pull until they get delicious treats!
Estimated Total Time: 2 hours
- 1 pkg chocolate cake mix (and corresponding ingredients)
- 2 cans of chocolate frosting
Making mustache cake is quite simple. Simply buy your box cake flavor of choice (Though chocolate would look more mustache-y) and bake it in 2 9inch cake pans while following the instructions on the box. When cakes are done baking, let cool for time allotted on the box then cut the cakes down the middle to form a yin yang (as symmetrical as possible). Once you've cut your cakes in half, place them round sides together with pointy sides down so they take the shape of a mustache and frost with chocolate frosting.
2 Personal Pizzas
Estimated Total Time: 25 minutes
- mini pizza crusts
- marinara sauce
- mozzarella cheese
- pizza meats (pepperoni, sausage)
- mixed vegetables (onions, peppers, mushrooms)
Have the kids don fake mustaches and make personal pizzas! You can either use English muffins or mini flatbreads for the crusts and make sure to have a plethora of toppings to choose from (make sure to have the basics: pepperoni, sausage and cheese). Pre-set the sauce on each personal pie for less mess!
Estimated Total Time: 15 minutes
- summer sausage
- other food items that can be formed into mustaches
You'll have to get a little creative with this one! Use regular old party snacks and arrange them on a serving tray in the shape of little mustaches. For example, use 2 carrots fashioned to together to form a mustache (the same can be done with any other straight vegetable, cheese or sausages).
