Mustache Bash = Success

One of our best couple friends, Jared & Margie, are expecting their first bambino this June so a couple girls and I decided...what better way to ring in baby Eli than having a diaper party for the daddy-to-be?! We scoured Pinterest (DUH!) for creative man-shower ideas and came up with thee most perfect theme...a mustache bash. Party full of dudes...really. It just made the most sense! The goal was to get the guys to bring a case of beer (for themselves) and a case of diapers, obviously, for the new parents. Worked like a charm!

Seriously...this is probably the simplest shower to host. You know guys...they don't really care about the details. It was really all for photos and memories for momma Margie. :)

Let me just say...the guys were such good sports! They were all about it being "guys only" and even grew out mustaches specifically for the party! I got texts throughout the week from them wanting to know which brand of diapers to get & which sizes the momma preferred...so sweet, right?!

The man-bouquet was quite a hit & SO simple!

Really...no tutorial necessary! Hot glue mini liquor bottles to sticks, shove 'em into syrofoam in the bottom of a pot, throw moss on top and tie a ribbon! Voila!







Proud papa-to-be!

Watching the guys drag in a case of diapers and a case of beer was quite hysterical.
My how the times have changed?!
 



Creepy dad-stache...ha!









The girls and I may or may not have planned a water balloon attack on the guys. I'm talking straight locked them out of the house for over a hour, took screens off windows and legit chunked water balloons at them when they didn't even know we were even back at the house. Yes...we're 5.
(The attack didn't go as planned...we should have known the guys would proceed to chunk live crawfish back at us through the window followed by a blast with the waterhose. Needless to say, we surrendered fairly quickly.) 

Please look at the excitement on each other their faces. Guys are so simple!





By the end of the day, the guys were sunburned, drunk and tired and our little momma loaded up the car with a bazillion diapers for baby E! I think I'd call that a successful day. ;)
