My son recently turned four. He wanted a Transformers party, but I wanted a mustache party.
So we compromised...he got Transformers for his family party and mustaches for his school party.
He wanted a pinata. I found a yellow car that was suitable to be Bumblebee, for $5 on sale at Kmart. But the only mustache one I could find was $30 plus shipping.
That's a lot for something you're going to smash to bits!
So I made one.
In fact I made all the party decor. Super fast and really cheap.
In fact, the only thing I bought was the bags and plates and napkins.
(Because as of now I can't figure out how to make a napkin or a paper plate! lol)
I did buy the mustache cut-outs from a seller on etsy. They shipped super-fast and were very reasonable.
The centerpiece is an aluminum can wrapped with a strip of paper bag that I glued the cut-out onto. I stuck a half of a mug sized flower foam inside and glued more cut-outs to skinny dowels. Skinny strips of paper bag crumbled up covered the foam.
The banner is paper bags cut into triangles & mustache cutouts glued to a thick black ribbon. The goody bags are lunch sacks stamped with mustaches. They sell a small mustache foam stamp at Hobby Lobby for about a buck fifty.
The cake was purchased from a local bakery, Trefzgers. They make great cake!
I don't have any close-ups of the pinata, but I tell you it was time consuming to make, but with having all the supplies on hand except the streamers, it was cheap and so worth it. I used cereal boxes and masking tape and glue. And about 5 hours total. :)
See how cute they are at the photo booth?
Happy Birthday Max!!
He's the one in the pink shirt! Just like his Mama. :)
