The Mr. Man Party


So the Mr. Man party was so much fun.  If you can't read the sign it says, Come One, Come All or just COMB over (get it).....MR. MAN PARTY "featuring" ANDREW & The BOYS.

Yes my brother was so kind to share his birthday with my boys in which I am very grateful for....like he really had a choice in the matter:-)  This birthday meant that my boys were kind of a coming of age.  When you hit 2 years old you're kind of not a baby anymore so I have been a little sad to see this day come.  That is where the whole idea started unfolding in my head for a "Mr. Man Party".  If you can't beat 'em join 'em.  Seriously it won't be to long before they are wearing ties and carrying briefcases but hopefully not mustaches (unless they are chocolate ones on a stick).  I promise to savor every last minute of these little tikes.    


  



The cookies, especially the tie ones were so cute & tasty.  Michelle makes very cute cakes as well...check her out.  The cupcakes were awesome because one of my favorite people came over and made them for me yesterday.  My Dad loved them so much that he even asked for the recipe.  Perhaps I'll post the recipe because they are sure to trick the pickiest of eaters.   On second thought, I don't know if I should because then my Dad would find out they were actually healthy & wouldn't eat them again.  They were made with agave nectar, whole grain spelt flour, coconut oil, pineapple and carrots.
  







 


          
The chocolate mustaches were a hit.  I think Auntie Whitney should consider one in real life.




So cute!  We always love it when baby "P" is in the house.  Does anybody know how to spell strictly...apparently I don't (refer below) but I'm too tired to change it.


My Mom made the below shirts.  The front had old ties sewed on with the back having their initial embroidered on it.  Thank you Momma, they were perfect.  Don't worry my brother got one too, except his said "The original Mr. Man" on the back.  We really did call him Mr. Man when he was a little boy so it was very fitting.  Thank you to all that came.  If anybody got some good shots of the boys blowing out their candles, pls. send my way.

Have a great weekend and a Happy Fathers Day!
Shout out to my Pappason & my Hubby.

what an adorable party! Love the mustaches! :)

Whitney Hannah Hill said...

Can I ask where you got all the paper lanterns? I am in need and am wondering if you found them at a decent price - I love the look and the colors!

twin2trip said...

Whitney

You'll never believe this but I bought all of the smaller lanterns @ Dollar Tree. They were white so I just spray painted them the colors that I needed. The large white ones were from Wal-Mart & I think they cost $3.50 a piece (they were in the 4th of July section)

Hope that helps!

Im so totally in love with this. Throwing a party for my one year old boy soon, who has a total comb over .. no joke... Im so inspired by this... thanks for all the great ideas!

Beth said...

I SOOOOOO love this party idea and plan to steal some of your ideas for my son's 2nd birthday in December. We call him "Little Man" all the time. Any tips you are willing to share would be much appreciated. Where did you get the cute "tie" napkins? Did you find all the ties at thrift stores? How did you find someone to do those chocolate mustaches?

Charee B Mcclellan said...

i have to laugh, during my pregnancy for our 1st born (we didn't have a name yet)..we called him MR. MAN! i seriously thought that i had made it up! for my showers people even put it on the cakes, on the cards and everything. once he was born and had a name...i never thought about it again. he just turned 2...this would have been such a great idea! shoot...i looked at this a month to late! great ideas, very fun.thanks!

Rachel@oneprettything.com said...

The triplets sure loved the Mr. Man party. And based on how the pictures show, even the elders enjoyed the party as well.
