Mustache Party Planning and Invitations

You can have a Mustache Madness bash that includes funny-looking mustaches in every detail. Shop our Mustache Madness party supplies for party basics like, plates, cups, napkins and table covers.

Let's face it! A mustache party is a crazy idea, so why not be silly from the start? Consider making things easy with the Mustache Madness Invitation. The invitations are red, white and black and can set up the vintage barber shop color scheme for your party. If you are feeling creative and want to make your own invitation, consider these ideas:

  • Trace a large "Handlebar" type mustache onto black card stock making sure that it remains a size and shape that can fit into an envelope if you are planning to mail your invitation.
If you are hosting an adult party, ask your guests to "grow a mustache" before the party.

Mustache Party Decorating & Food Ideas

The best color scheme for a Mustache Madness party is white, red and black or navy. These colors give everything a bit of vintage barber shop flair.Start with balloons which are an easy way to make the room look festive. Remember that the ceiling isn't the only place to hang balloons. Be creative while decorating. Choose colors that match your party theme and then add Mylar balloons into the mix. Tip: Check out our guide to learn how to properly inflate a Mylar balloon. Here are some balloon and streamer ideas to inspire your Mustache Madness party.

  • Decorate white balloons with construction paper and markers. You can create funny-looking mustached faces by taping on eyes, ears, hair and other accessories or drawing a face with permanent markers.
  • Tape balloons to the wall in a formation to match your celebration using a name , age or relevant shape. This will create a dramatic and colorful wall display.
  • Wrap Crepe paper streamers around poles, stairwells and chairs. You can leave white space while wrapping the streamers or completely cover the surface to create a solid colored decoration.
  • Create a streamer chandelier by gathering 6-8 long streamer strips by one end. Tape one end to the ceiling and then fan out the strips to all corners of the room. This will look really festive if you use alternating colors.

"Wow," from the moment they enter the party.

  • When guest arrive, have them select a stick on mustache from bowls laid out on a table to wear for the rest of the evening.
  • A Mustache Madness Pinata filled with Mustache Madness Party Favors and Candy can be both an activity and a decoration.
  • Remember, you can transform any pinata into a pull-string with these easy instructions.
Make Barber Shop Poles to fill out the corners of the room or hang from the door post of the party room:
  • Buy large Styrofoam cylinders and round/globe shaped Styrofoam. Make sure the cylinders are flat on the top and bottom.
  • At the top and bottom of the cylinder put toothpicks or larger skewer-type sticks depending on the size of your cylinder.
  • Place the ball shaped foam on the picks or sticks so that the ball sits on top of the cylinder. You can either leave the bottom of the cylinder flat or take one of the balls and cut off the bottom so the cylinder can stand upright.
  • On large white paper, color red, white and blue stripes in a diagonal pattern.
  • Wrap the cylinder with the colored paper and secure with tape or glue.
  • Cover the balls on the top and bottom with tin foil to look like silver.

A Mustache Madness party will be a success with any type of food you want to serve. Depending on the time of day and the age of the guests, consider having either a more elegant vintage style party for adults or a fun and silly party for children.

  • Make various sandwiches with any type of filling using dark/Pumpernickel bread and cut them in the shape of mustaches.
  • Serve fruit punch in paper themed cups. If you want to be a bit fancier, use glass Ball jars.
Make your own Shaving Cream sundae bar! This is always a big hit with kids and adults alike!
  • Set our various types of ice cream. Consider having someone serve the ice cream for the guests so that it doesn't get too messy.
  • Put various toppings in individual bowls with serving spoons.
  • Let everyone get creative.
  • Encourage the use of Shaving Cream/Whipped Cream.
Sugar cookies are also fun to eat and decorate. Just use our sugar cookie recipe, shaped cookie cutters, and an assortment of colorful icing. Decorate the cookies before the party or use the cookies as an activity.
  • Set out icing, sprinkles and small candies and give each child a cookie to decorate.
  • Encourage the guests to get creative by decorating the cookies to look like faces with mustaches included.
