Growing a mustache for the cause of men’s health is not for everyone, but a party near the end of November is! Check out these awesome ideas for hosting a Movember fundraising gala, AKA a “Mo party.”
The mustache party theme is traditional, and Shindigz has fun mustache party decorations reminiscent of the corner barbershop and old-timey barbershop quartets.
Hosting a mustache party is not your only option, though. You could move “mustache adjacent,” for example, by putting together a pirate party that would be blast plus a terrific excuse for sporting excessive facial hair.
How about a collective tip of the hat to a famous mustachioed character? A theme tied to Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot might mean hosting a murder mystery in a setting associated with Poirot’s adventures: the opera, an Egyptian tomb, or perhaps one of the sumptuous stops on the Orient Express, for example Paris or Munich. Browse International Party Supplies to find your preference.
First, set up a Facebook page for your Mo party event so you can include the URL on the invitations. That way, invitees can visit and “like” the page to receive news and updates about the event. Then select an invitation appropriate to your theme and include the URL on the bottom line of your custom text fields.
If you like, slip thin fake mustaches from our collection of mustache party wearable favors into invitation envelopes for the guests who cannot grow their own. Ask them to wear the mustaches to the party – but do supply extras at the door for those who forget.
Mo Fun in Fundraising
Of course, you will want to recognize the best of Movember fundraising at the gala. Honor the top achievers using royalty favors such as crowns and robes.
Why not host a mustache contest? Mo “bros” who are seeking Movember sponsorships usually grow their mustaches beginning the first of November and shave them off December 1. They (the mustaches) should be looking very good by the time of the party!
Make up your own categories such as “Most Villainous” or “Most Firefighter-Like” and be sure to publicize the contest beforehand using the event Facebook page. Award swag bags to the winners.
Generally we like theme photo favors for a Movember party because guests so much enjoy having photos taken with mustaches fake or otherwise. Send photos via email to attendees, and be sure to publish an album of the best at the Facebook event site, too.
