The Ultimate Mustache Bash for Your Little Man’s First Birthday

The Ultimate Mustache Bash for Your Little Man's Birthday ~

Your tiny guy has spent 12 months working hard to impress you.

He’s crawled where no baby has crawled before.

He’s paid the price for exploration with numerous oochies and boo-boos.

He has grunted at the dinner table, passed gas on the changing table, and slobbered over the remote.

It’s time to celebrate the Little Man that he’s become.

It’s time to throw him a mustache bash that Ron Burgandy, Tom Selleck, Charlie Chaplin, Hulk Hogan, Lionel Ritche, and (personal favorite) Yosemite Sam would all be proud of.

The Ultimate Mustache Bash Games

Naturally, if you’re going to throw an Ultimate anything, you need some pretty fun games for the guests to play (especially the older kids).  Here are my favorite finds for mustache-themed games!

The Photo Booth ~ This is an obvious winner.  Set up a station with fun props and fingerstache tattoos.

Pull String Mustache Pinata ~ This mustache pinata takes a more gentle approach to candy-hunting.  Instead of having kids dizzily wandering the room swing a bat (eventually smacking Uncle Jo in the privates and wining $100K on America’s Funniest Videos), this takes a more, less manly, approach to pinata.  Each child pulls a string until the candy comes out.  (Of course, you could ignore the swings, and shoot for that $100K anyway…)

Name That Stache ~ This is a game for the adults.  Print out the classic mustache shapes and tape them to cards – then see if your guests can name each type of mustache.  For a bonus round, print cropped photos of the most famous mustaches of all time, and have them match person + mustache.

Stick the Mustache on the Baby  ~ Blow up a photo of your Little Guy, and then play “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” only see who can place the mustache perfectly!

This post will give you a good starting point in setting up your own fun mustache bash!

How are you going to celebrate your Little Man on his first birthday?


  1. I am loving this, we just had my sons 1st birthday party but its a definite runner up for next year….and so on trend with the MOVEMBER mania. You Never fail to impress

    • Thanks Janine! I must confess…after finding all these cute things, I was seriously trying to figure out how to make my three year old have a mustache bash for her birthday, lol. Unfortunately, three year old girls with two older sisters have strong opinions about such things…fairies it is. *sigh* Makes me want to play the Pregnancy Roulette games again and shoot for a son… 😉

  2. Thanks for the ideas!  Planning my last kiddos 1st birthday.  And mustache’s it is.  ( I stole the idea from my daughter’s  Sweet 16 steam punk birthday, she had some mustache left over items) lol so now I can “save money” and reuse some of those items.  Just couldn’t think of how to pull it all together.
