Dispatches from France: Mila's Moustache Party

Contributor post by Karine Kong of BODIE and FOU

This year, my daughter Mila celebrated Halloween in France wearing the Batgirl costume I had put in her suitcase amongst other things. So I don't have photos to share but I realized that I never posted the photos of her Moustache Birthay party! Initially it was supposed to be an Ugly Betty party but it turned out that she was the only little girl to watch Ugly Betty with her mum and none of her friends knew who Betty was so we settled for a Mr Mustache one.
We put some smarties in little paper boats, some pretty straws in the Owl Vase, a lovely Rob Ryan bunting and lots of white balloons in our lounge. I made some delicious chocolate brownies, the girls played games, danced, jumped on my sofa, sometimes the moustache fell off but everybody had a great time!
Paper boats from Dutch company Jurianne Matter, window sticker with star from Brume, Rabbit lamp from here & black masking tape from there, Kids with mustache borrowed (just kidding)

That's funny. I bought the owl that holds the straws at a thrift shop last week.
