Saturday night I threw a party!!! Wear your best cheap disguise!
I love hosting themed parties. Some of my favorites: Ugly Sweater, 80s, New Years Eve, Pajama Party, and Christmasquerade.
Any celebration can be turned into a theme party with a few cheap disguises! I encouraged my guests to wear something cheap and fun, like a mustache. I didn't want this to be a typical 'mustache party' but some of the elements are very similar and I got lots of ideas from mustache parties that I found online.
In my search I found the Wedding Chicks and I decided to make some of their amazing Sculpty mustaches. Such a fun idea! I made a bunch and put them in a vase. They were easy to access for pictures and made a great centerpiece.
To find out how to make your own, read here. These are so easy, great for a birthday party for kids or adults, a shower or even a wedding reception! So fun!

Okay so from all of those sources, here is what I came up with. I found some awesome foam heads at a flea market and I put them up on my mantle. Then, I displayed all of my wigs (from other parties) on the heads. Each head had its own unique mustache, cut from felt.
Below the heads, on the edge of the mantle, I used my Poladroid Polaroid Maker and images found on a google search of 'famous mustaches' to make images of some of my favorites. I printed them on white cardstock and stuck them up with glue dots.
A mustache bandit came by and stuck felt mustaches on paintings, photos and statues in my house. Here is a cute owl with a mustache and a picture of my niece!
All in all, it was a great night. Below, you can see some of my favorite Instax pictures from the evening. A few real mustaches, and lots of fake ones! Enjoy!!
Best wishes, happy parties and hope you are having a great MONDAY! Thanks for reading.
