Throwing a Craft Party with Vintage Flair
I wish I was friends with Jessie Senese of Shop Sweet Lulu so she would throw me parties. Jessie does not throw plain old shin-digs with supplies from the local Party Pig, oh no this woman picks a theme and runs with it. Recently, when a friend of her's had a book published she opted for a vintage inspired craft party to celebrate. Who knew sewing baskets, bowls of colorful buttons and fabric scraps could look so cute and festive? I have never thought of my craft supplies as party decor, but now that I have I am already planning a soiree.
Jessie shares oodles of cute pictures from the party on her blog and also a few pearls of wisdom about throwing your own craft party:
Do not ply your friends with food and wine and then expect them to sit down and listen to you teach them how to thread a needle and sew a running stitch. They are too busy giggling and chatting.
