Mr. Man Birthday Party - boy and adult

Today’s Real Party feature has got to be one of the cutest and most creative ideas I’ve stumbled upon in a while!  This adorable “Mr. Man” Theme was created by Christina Brian of the Full House blog in order to celebrate the birthdays of her (super-cute) TRIPLET boys AND her brother! (Side note Christina has twin girls too!)

From a garland of ties to hilarious chocolate mustaches, this party is full of great inspiration for both birthday parties of all ages and boy baby showers…

Check out these fun pics – such a great idea for photo opps!

Read on for lots more pics & all the details, as told by Christina…


“So the Mr. Man party was so much fun. The welcome sign read, “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 had been a little sad to see this day come. That’s 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 the day before the party. 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!

My Mom made the shirts (pictured below). 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!”

So cute, Christina – thanks again for sharing!

    where do you buy the chocolate mustaches?

  20. Christina November 19, 2009 at 4:28 pm

    Oh wow what nice comments, thank you!

    Candice – the thing behind the ties is actually butcher paper that I painted in white and orange stripes.

    Alice – The supplies to make the chocolate mustaches are from:

    There is actually a mustache sucker mold on the site.

  33. carley May 14, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    I am so excited to find this blog! I wanted to have a “big boy” birthday party for my soon to be three year old….i searched chocolate mustache and paper ties….and this is what came up!! I knew this had to have been done before!! Awesome blog!!!

  34. Jenny Williams June 6, 2011 at 10:44 am

    I LOVE THIS! I’ve been brainstorming trying to figure out what I want to do for my son, Ryder’s, 2nd birthday party this November, and I think I just found it! I’m doing a photoshoot of him in a few weeks and am making him a mustache shirt. Funny that you used the mustache pops- the pics I’m taking will be perfect to display at the party!

  35. Nicole June 27, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    Where are the napkins from?
