{shower goodies} oh boy + mustaches

howdy folks!  i bet you thought i had forgotten about you... nah i totally haven't, i just have been trying to keep up with all the events and custom orders i've been working on this summer, it sure has made my summer sail by {BOOO}!

anyhow this summer I had the opportunity to create some finishing touches for a shower one of my girl friends hosted... i'm still waiting to get photos from the shower, but here are some of photos i snapped from my ipad since my camera wasn't charged {if that tells you anything about how crazy things have been, i didn't even have my camera charged, ahhh!}

ok, now onto the goodies: 
they wanted a blue, black and white color scheme 
that used the so cute mustache motif that's popping up everywhere!

i created a name sign in honor or the new little guy that's on his way

she also wanted to use the "oh boy" expression so we used it for the banner and I snuck some mustaches in too to make the banner more interesting...
{please excuse my glass used as a weight, ahem...}
also, the colors appeared a little faded in these shots, i usually don't snap pics in the AM, however i had to that day, so you'll see the true color in the photos of the cupcake flags + favor tags

my friend wanted another banner but didn't want a saying on it, 
so i just created another banner with more of the cute paper i used for all of these goodies... 
what a great way to add some extra color to your party!

and here are the oh so cute and spunky cupcake flags... i just died when i found the blue + white herringbone paper in the middle as well as the blue colored graphing patterned paper... and who am i kidding all the paper i used was too cute! ... and yes i fall in love with all of my projects =)

my girlfriend also got ambitious and made chocolate mustache candies as guest favors, so i whipped up these fun and coordinated favor tags to tie onto the bags!

i would love love to create some invites to go along with this fun theme, and if you are in need of a mustache party for someone you know feel free to shoot me an email and i'd be happy to whip up something fun like this for your party!  jdvpaperie@gmail.com =)
