When this featured submission popped up in our inbox, it put a huge smile on my face. As a mother to two boys, I’m always referring to them as “My Little Men”.  Although I’m not the biggest fan of the “moustache trend” that we saw in 2011, this table by Gretchen from Three Little Monkeys Studio was done just right! Ever since her son was born, Gretchen and her husband have always called their son “our little man.” So it seemed fitting to design a Little Man Bash to celebrate his second birthday. Sweet treats included homemade whoopie pies, brownies, caramel cheesecake shooters {scroll down for the recipe below!}, moustache cookies, those amazing cake pops (half of which were created to look just like Gretchen’s son), doughnuts, cake and cupcakes. Moustache crayon favors and lollipops were given out to the lil guests, while adults took home gourmet chocolate bars covered in wrappers that matched the theme. Moustache stamps designed by The Skill Collector were used to give a personal touch to napkins, favor bags, invitation envelopes and bamboo utensils.  Scroll down below to see the vendor credits and to see Gretchen’s recipe for her Caramel Pretzel Crunch Cheescake Shooters!
