We could hardly contain our excitement when this feature came into our inbox. Christine of Pure Joy Events created this party for her daughter Caitlyn’s 7th birthday. Caitlyn became interested in sewing after receiving a sewing kit for Christmas. Fabric is always a huge inspiration to me when we’re doing parties, and Christine also was inspired by fabric with Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane pattern.
Christine transformed her child’s playroom into a sewing room. Some amazing props included a 100 year old rotary sewing machine, vintage spools of thread and hand made pin cushions. She also brought in hoops to dress up the sewing party decor. Christine took embroidered fabric and stretched it over hoops to create a backdrop for the dessert table. There were initaled hoop placemats on the table where the girls ate, and Christine had hoops ready for the girls to sew as an activity. Christine had ruffled fabric garlands draped across the chair backs.
A vintage sewing table was used to create the dessert table. Isn’t that beautiful? Desserts included spool of thread cookies n’ cream cake pops by 6 Bittersweets, lollipops made with vanilla flavored candy melts, raspberry curd, macarons and that amazing sewing cake. Everything is about this submission is SEW beautiful!
