{Ask Amy} Little Man Family Party Ideas

Recently I was asked for some fun ideas for a father/son birthday party with a Little Man theme!  I love this idea and after the recent hit of the mustache lollipops at my son's Super Mario party, I immediately began the hunt for a Mustache Bash!  I have seen several versions of this idea done before but thought I would draw some inspiration from all of them and more to share with you!

For the invitations, I love the idea of hiring a photographer to get a great family photo of you all!  Use the photo for your invite and frame a large one to add to your party decor!  Set a beautiful piece of stationary next to the framed photo with a pen and a sign asking all of your guests to leave birthday wishes to each of you on the paper.  After the party, mount the paper to the back of the frame for a special keepsake from your special day!

Ties & mustaches are a theme running throughout most of these ideas!  Necktie flaps on goodie bags in complimentary patterns and colors are a perfect way to send your guests home with goodies from a candy bar!  Or another fabulous idea is to create "my stache" jars to fill with colorful treats!  Mustache lollipops with party flags are another easy way to personalize your party!  Necktie cookies, bibs and birthday banners top it off.

And this super cute little man party with necktie t-shirts that create a banner and double as favors for the kids in fresh colors that are perfect for all ages!

And I love the inspiration provided by the above photos for food to serve at the party!  Grosgrain ribbon wrapped around toothpicks make a easy DIY topper to any food or dessert.  Any small foods will do the trick!  Finger foods for a little man make it easy to feed a crowd.

And last but not least, a photo booth ready with props for all ladies and gents!  Love this signage!  Be sure to check out my Pinterest board to see all vendor and photography credits, DIY tutorials, as well as link to all the sources so you can get started on your own 'Litlle Man' party!
