Little Man Baby Shower

I helped throw another ‘Little Man’ themed shower this past weekend, this time for my cousin’s wife.  The shower was at my mom’s house, so I went down the night before and did a lot of the set-up.  I got to do everything I wanted to – even if it did involve a couple of extra last minute oops trips to the grocery store.

Behind the gift table, I strung blue plastic tablecloths up as a backdrop.  I stuck tiny mustaches all over it and hung some onesies onto which my mom had appliqued neckties.  My cousin made a diaper motorcycle that turned out so cute and was a hit at the party.

To greet guests,  I hung a black chipboard mustache over a blue tissue paper fan on the door.  We put balloons with mustaches on the mailbox and at the entrance.  (We have a back door policy family:)

I also hung little neckties from the mantle.  We played the ‘Guess that stache’ game with photos of famous mustaches.

On the food table, we had ‘MAN’wiches, Bowtie pasta salad, mustache cookies, grape salad, and pretzel ‘cigars’.  I loved the colorful mustache napkins I found at TJMaxx.

At the drink table, I hung some Martha Stewart accordion lanterns and added blue chevron paper fans with mustaches to the front of the table.  I found the cute mustache bank at Hobby Lobby and made LeMANade punch for the guests.

I am really pleased with how everything turned out and the mom-to-be got lots of fun stuff for her little man!

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
