Party Makes

I love hosting parties. I really really do. I am a born feeder, always baking and sharing the results. So when it came down to finding a place to host a little sewist summer party, I volunteered. I had a blast making the decorations and baking a few bits.

Inspired by a few fabric garlands on Pinterest, I made my own. It used quite a bit of scraps and can easily be put away and used again for other parties. Highly recommended! It’s very shabby chic and brightens up a space quite well.

My me-made napkins finally got some use. I made these when I first started sewing so they have a special place in my heart. I kept them away in the linen closet and finally decided to bring them out. They are quite bright and cheery and dressed up the table nicely.

A party ain’t a party without some sweets…

So those are just a few snapshots of what I made. I also played bartender and made some cocktails, including a gin concoction that I need to replicate again so I can share the recipe. It’s much too good to keep to myself. Once I round up some gin I will try as many times possible until I get the cocktail right. It’s a sacrifice I am willing to make :).

I am a true believer that sharing is caring. So for now I will leave you with the recipe for my go-to *honey margarita. Cheers!

Fill a 14 oz. shaker with the following ingredients:
2 oz. Hurradura Reposado
Splash of Cointreau
1 oz Honey
2 oz. Fresh squeezed lime juice
1 oz. Fresh squeezed orange juice
Squeeze half of a lime
Cover, shake and pour over ice in a martini glass.

  1. Your party looked like so much fun! Look at all those gorgeous goodies!
    I’m redecorating and organizing my sewing room and I love the garland idea. It’s a great way to use those scraps I love that are too awkward or small for much else.


  2. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon! Your meet-ups with fellow bloggers always make me wish I lived closer to other sewing bloggers, and your macaroons make my mouth water from the other side of the Atlantic!


I'd love to hear from you
