It’s a Mustache Bash!

March 8, 2012

As I stated in my last post, I am hoping to add Party Ensembles to my Scraps of Life offerings. I am uber excited about this concept and already have ideas floating around in my head for various party ensembles. Think Baby Shower, 4th of July, Graduation…eeep! So many ideas!

But let me not get ahead of myself! It’s going to take some time and planning to create a few of those party ensembles. So in the meantime, let me show you the very first ensemble I put together: A Mustache Bash!

The story behind this ensemble is super cute. I friend of mine whom I used to work with a few years ago contacted me on Facebook and asked me if I would be interested in creating some items for her son’s third birthday party. She knew I was a paper crafter and that I was on Etsy, so she was awesome enough to think of me before just buying what she needed on Etsy. Of course I was thrilled and jumped at the opportunity! And the theme for her little boy’s birthday party? A Mustache Bash!

I had so much fun creating all the little details for the ensemble. But this invitation is probably my favorite element. The design is exactly how I had it in my head, and I just love how it swivels open to reveal the invitation panel where you can write all the information for the party.

Here is a cute favor tag. My friend asked for tags for the favors since she was planning on personalizing different goodie bags.

Cupcake toppers are a must for any kids’ party!

Here is a fun little favor bag and topper design I came up with just for the fun of it.

And of course, you need Thank You Cards to send to your guests after the party to thank them for attending!

I seriously had so much fun creating this ensemble for my friend. It’s the reason I decided to make Party Ensembles a part of the Scraps of Life line. It’s just so much fun creating coordinating party elements. And the possibilities are endless as to the different kind of party themes I can create! And creative possibilities are what drive me!

So look forward to seeing more party ensembles from me in the future, along with more wedding fun, too!
