When my daughter turned 11 she was a HUGE fan of mustaches. I wanted the party theme to reflect her at that exact moment in time, so I designed a Mustache & Burlap Birthday Party incorporating some of her favorite trends.


Theme Colors: White, Black, Red and “Burlap”


I used burlap colored Deco Mesh as a table runner. At the time, I couldn’t find matching plates, but I did come across the perfect napkins and laid them on top of a plain black paper plate. I printed a thank you note on brown paper lunch bags and used those as goody bags. They were tied with twine and each had a personalized mustache tag.


I found burlap and mustache ribbon and attached it to the lid of a mason jar to use as a cool drinking glass. I replaced the basic plastic straws that came with these mustaches with nicer vintage-inspired striped paper straws.


I found these plastic mustache picks by chance at a home store, and dropped my store bought cupcakes into these cute red polka dot cups for a little color.


Finally, I placed some red and white gerbera daisies into vintage milk jars and tied burlap ribbon to each of the chairs for a finishing touch.
