FREE Little Man Mustache Bash Party Printables from Printabelle


Little Man Mustache Bash parties are so popular on our site! The theme works great for baby showers, 1st birthdays, and even older boy birthdays.  The whole idea of a boy pretending to be a man is so inherently cute, and then put a tie and a mustache on him and you've just upped the cuteness factor by a power of ten!

I'm super excited to be giving away these little man mustache bash party printables designed by my friend Michelle at Printabelle. Add some of our free mustache photo booth props and you've got yourself a complete birthday party or shower!

This collection includes: invitations, welcome sign, cupcake toppers, water bottle labels, treat toppers, mini candy bar wrappers, "Little Man" banner (big and small), gift tags, thank you and menu/place cards.


Here are the individual files...

SPOTLIGHT ON: Chris Nease and Operation Shower

I've been so inspired reading about Chris Nease's work with Operation Shower on her blog, that I had to call her up personally to talk to her about it. Chris is the creative mind behind Celebrations at Home, one of my must-read party and entertainment blogs.

Operation Shower is a nonprofit organization that throws baby showers for pregnant or expecting military families. Chris has helped coordinate two showers for them in the DC area along with Amy Belle Isle from Stem Parties, who is Chief Event Organizer. The latest shower was held in October at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and boy did they do a great job!

The theme was "A Star is Born," and looked just like a movie premiere with a red carpet, velvet ropes, popcorn, and movie posters.

There were about 40 expecting moms (either wives of military men or women serving in the military themselves).  With K-mart as the national sponsor, and a host of local sponsors, these women went home with loads of much needed baby gear.

I asked Chris what the most satisfying thing was about working on the shower.  She said she was blown away by how appreciative the mothers were. When the mothers walked in they were each handed a goodie bag. Many thought this was their gift, only to be shocked and overwhelmed by the cribs, car seats, high chairs and other huge items to come. I also asked Chris what the most surprising thing was about working on the showers. She said it's amazing how much fun it is to give back, especially when you're doing it in a field you love.

Currently Operation Shower is running it's Operation Give Thanks fundraising campaign to help Operation Shower continue their mission to throw baby showers for military families.  They are asking people across the nation to host a party, big or small, between now and the end of the year to raise money for Operation Shower.

Their long-term goal is to reach every military base in the nation. Their short-term goal is to raise $50,000 through Operation Give Thanks to enable them to shower over 200 more moms-to-be !
