I wanted to do something fun and out of the norm for my birthday this year.  It’s so much fun to have a birthday on New Year’s Eve, because there is always an excuse to throw a big party! (I like to think the whole world celebrates my birthday :] ).  I had this idea when I was photographing guests at a wedding reception, using The Picture Box.  The mustaches were definitely my favorite props, and it escalated into a full out mustache theme! I kept having more and more ideas for the party, and decided it wouldn’t be a party without tons of mustaches, mustache trivia and games, mustache cupcakes and food, and… The Picture Box. I have never learned more about Mustaches in my life!  Did you know there is an American Mustache Institute? Did you know the longest mustache in the world measured 12 1/2 feet?  Will and I had so much fun putting this party together, and he hosted the games “Famous Mustaches” and “Mustache Trivia.” We counted down to the New Year, broke out in Auld Lang Syne, and had fun in The Picture Box until the wee hours of the morning.  Thanks to everyone who came to make me feel special and loved – I wish you the happiest 2011!

The first criteria of my party?  When you arrived, you had to get a mugshot…

I think the Willix family had the best all around mustaches – I especially loved Michelle’s glitter ‘stache!

They love our pup :]

Best idea of the night! ::

My mom is on the right, and my aunt on the left.  I have to say, mom’s mustache took the cake for best mustache of the evening.  Perfection!

The gentlemen :

The ladies :

The Winston!

Before the Mustache Bash was in full swing, my sister called me begging to video chat.  Although they live in Nashville and couldn’t be here for the bash, they were still a part of the party!  When I opened up my video chat window, this is what I saw :

Her whole family had mustaches on! It was the cutest thing ever, and it made my day!

It was a fabulous birthday party… I couldn’t have been happier!  I am officially 24 and loving it; and very happy to embrace 2011! Thanks again to all who made New Year’s Eve so special.

I loved looking at these photos… and all of your work! You have such fantastic ideas! I love how you take an idea and run with it… something as simple and mundane (seemingly) as mustaches became what seems to be a blast of a party! Hope you had a wonderful birthday!
