Mustashe Bash for Movember

Have you heard about Movember?  It's a really neat campaign that started in Austraila to help raise awareness and funds for prostate and other cancer's affecting men's health.  Mo Bros around the world shaved their faces clean yesterday to start their month of stache' growing and campaigning.  Mo Bros and MoSistas engage families, friends, and their communities to "grow" funds as their mustaches grow throughout the month of (formerly known as) November. It's catching on as you can see...

So why not try to host a Movember Stache Bash this month to join in the fundraising efforts?  We celebrated with mustache style for my son's 1st birthday and everyone had a blast!  Staches are so in style right now and accessories to create the perfect party can be found in so many places.  Here's a few DIY ideas we used...
Utilize Picnik and their mustache stickers to create custom invitations!  
Pop in the face of your Mo Bro freshly shaven!
Create a day by day stache growth banner of your Mo Bro!  Just take the photos and use Picnik to edit them.  Print at your local one hour photo processing center (or home printer), punch some holes and thread onto string, ribbon, whatever!
What's almost as popular as mustaches? 
 That's right...CUPCAKES! 
 Use these awesome and FREE toppers to add some humor to your desserts!
Of course you'll need plenty of fake stache's to share!  
These Stache' Sippers have been widely received and they are super easy to make!  
Just take a look at the How To here!
Keep them in 'Staches even when they're not sippin' on drinks!  
These 'Stache on a stick are awesome photo props too!  See...
Pin the 'Stache on the Mo Bro would be a great way to raise a few dollars for the cause!  
Just print out a enlarged photo of your Mo Bro and folks can donate dollars for mustaches to try and pin!
It's a classic party game, but with this little twist, you can do a little good while you play!
Party favors could include...
or a cute razor and shaving cream kit?
or a mini travel brush or comb paired with a retractable sewing tape measure to give party goes the tools to groom and measure their Mo Bro's stache!

In all seriousness, A Mustache Bash is a great excuse to have a fun and sorta silly party that increases awareness and raises money for a worthy cause!
