A Sewing Themed Baby Shower
April 28, 2011 by 10 Comments
If you love handmade parties and are a DIY’er yourself, then you are going to love today’s Sewing Themed baby shower from Andi of Beautiful Ordinary Day. Andi and a few friends put together this shower to honor the mom-to-be, and baby Lucy’s impending arrival. This was truly a group effort as the ladies did everything themselves, from the hoop art above (spelling Lucy’s name) to the decorated cookies, mini pies, and “Lucy cakes”(cupcakes) in a jar seen below.
You will notice the overall theme and activity of the day is sewing and fabric crafts, as they all made personalized onesies for baby Lucy. I love the supplies table set up with an array of materials to choose from, not to mention the fabulous vintage window-turned-chalkboard.
Another detail of this party that I love is the reaccuring use of the embroidery hoops in different sizes, used for decor. This is such an easy idea really – just place some coordinating fabric in each one to add great decorative touches all around the space. If you like, you can add mini buntings or embroidered words or letters as well.
These ideas can be incorporated into any ‘vintage’, or shabby chic theme. Thanks Andi, for allowing me to share this sweet handmade shower!
Note: See what inspired Andi’s shower on Swoon – it’s an adorable “Picnic Birthday Party.”
