Vintage Sewing Birthday Party (11 photos)
Caitlyn celebrated her 7th birthday with a Vintage Sewing Party that was inspired by Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane fabric collection.
The custom designed invitations by FLIPAWOO were hand-delivered to each of the guests weeks in advance.
On the day of the party, the children’s playroom was transformed into a sewing room, complete with a rotary sewing machine dating back to 1915, vintage spools of thread and hand-made pin cushions. I created a simple backdrop by stretching fabric on embroidery hoops of varying sizes and hanging them on a giant cork board that was already in the room. Vintage blue mason jars holding fresh flowers from the local grocery store were placed on each of the tables, and my DIY ruffled fabric garlands were draped across the chair backs.
A vintage sewing table acquired from Stylish Patina served as the perfect dessert and beverage table. Sewing themed desserts included a sewing basket cake by PhoebeCakes, spool of thread cake pops from 6 Bittersweets, and decorated sugar cookies by JP Creatibles.
For activities, the girls used embroidery thread to stitch their first initial and a flower onto eco-felt that was stretched over a hoop. Then they used a kit from Paper and String to make adorable felt cupcakes sprinkled with mini brads and topped with buttons.
Beautifully sewn pencil pouches by Bagel Creations and hand-crafted button cards were given to the guests as they were leaving the party.
