Since we were supposed to be moving the weekend of Ryder's birthday party, we decided to do his party at Pizza Hut since they have an indoor playground for the kids. When I went to reserve our spot they told me no more than 20 guests are allowed. Well, that about sums up our immediate family, but I didn't have anywhere else to do it around here (you never know with the weather so I didn't want to do it at local park). So, this was just a small family party and then I let Ryder pick 2 friends to come. He chose Levi and Gaines, so that was that :)
Since we did it at a pizza place, I wanted to go with a little "italian pizzeria" theme, hence the mustache.
This is the picture I was going to use for the back but didn't, I couldn't choose.
I cut out black sticky-back felt to make these shirts for the boys.
I just wrapped up a box of theatre candy, and the mustache on top has a sticky back so they could pull it off and put it on.
I "mustache" you a question - will you party with me???
Luckily I had an extra stash to stick on Rhodes' bib for a possible spit up emergency.

I felt bad that we couldn't invite everybody and have a big party for Ryder, but I must say, that was the least stressful planned event I've ever thrown. Between the small party and not having it at our house, it was 100% e-a-s-y.
