It was a bash …

… It was a mustache bash
It was a bash
It was a birthday smash

And the girls had a great time. We ended up with nine girls plus Katy. Nadia got sick and couldn’t make it at the last minute but thanks to modern technology, they were able to Face Time with her.

Katy wanted to be all fancy and use the punch bowl. She decided on pigs in blankets, pizza rolls, mini corndogs and fruit kabobs. She wanted shertbert punch but I wasn’t real wild on the idea of a lot of red punch in the living room so I found a recipe for a white punch. It was a hit and one girl asked for the recipe.

With mustaches being the in thing right now we had no problem finding all the decorations and paper goods.

White punch. It has ice cream rather than sherbert and a couple of girls got so much ice cream they needed spoons. It was a hit, though.

There were mustaches on the kabobs!

After lunch the girls played Name that ‘Stache and pin the mustache on the guy.

We had prizes for the winners. It was close on the mustache guy but the girls all agreed that Miranda was closest. The mustache ID game was a little trickier. No one got them all or missed just one or two. There were three entries with three (out of 10) wrong and Catherine and Amie had filled out a paper together. We put the three tied entries in a bag and drew to see who won the prize. It was a Catherine and Amie and luckily the prize was something they could divide up. (Four wall decorations.)

Bring on the cake! I just bought the cake from Kroger but they did a pretty nice job.

And it wouldn’t be a mustache bash if no one had a mustache!

It was a really nice party. The girls didn’t eat nearly enough and with Thursday’s leftover cake we have enough leftovers to have another party!

Take your goody bag and thank you for coming!

One thought on “It was a bash …

  1. What a Happy Birthday it must have been! What an incredibly lucky young lady you are to have such an invested Mother who pours energy, creativity and time into assisting you Katy in planning (and dreaming) your way through your life milestones! I hope she puts the white punch recipe on here or if she’s keeping it a secret locally that she’ll share it with me out here in the middle of the Pacific. I love to entertain using my punch bowl! Loved the moustache man, the contest and the way you found the winner. Sounds like you all ere thinking on your feet, good at problem- solving the outcome fairly and everyone must have left a winner because they got to be there. Wow! Can’t wait to hear about your next birthday!
