I am sew smitten with this party!  Christine of Pure Joy Events designed the most beautiful party for her little girl based on her daughter's love of her new sewing machine (a Christmas gift).  There are so many details that you don't want to miss!  The invitations were the first hint at what a darling party it would be...

What a wonderful idea to have the invitation on a spool!  I also love the vintage sewing machine~notice it is set on "7".

The party was set in the children's playroom with treats and activities that were sew perfect!  Button shaped lollipops held by spools, spool-shaped cake pops dressed with matching tape, and handmade pin cushions to hold the sign- such wonderful ways to tie in the theme.

The perfectly beautiful cookies~

I love how the drink bottles were tied with twine and a button!


Raspberry Parfaits match perfectly~

And, the adorable clever!


The activities were so much fun.  They began with guessing how many buttons in the jar and hoop toss!

I am sure the girls will always treasure their first attempt at sewing!

And their sweet handmade pencil bags to take home as favors~

Wow!  It looks like it is SEW fun to be SEVEN!

What a beautiful party with such thoughtful details!  Thank you for sharing, Christine!

Are you suppose to give away the glass bottles too? I just did a party and arrange some pretty bottles with the name of each guests on it, for my daughter's 6th birthday. I didn't give them away at the end of the party, but now I have a doubt??? I mean they had their goodie bags nice and full, but some people thought the glasses in which they drank were also part of the goodie bag...Did I do wrong?? Thanks for enlightening me. I am not from here, I just saw those on blogs and stuff, and thought it was pretty...
