We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

A "Sew Cute" Sewing Themed Baby Shower

Adorable invitation set for a sewing themed baby shower

Events In The City designed this darling baby shower for expecting mama Bre. Their team knew Finch Sewing Studio would make a great spot to host the shower in Historic Downtown Leesburg, VA, and with this unique location, a "Sew Cute" theme could not have been more perfect! The fun, happy tone was set with the cutest invitations and was carried through the entire event, beginning with a great welcome sign using letters threaded in pegboard to mimic cross-stitch.

As guests arrived, signature champagne drinks "Button Bellinis" and "Ribbon Royales" awaited them with adorable stirrers adorned with mini spools and buttons. From there they enjoyed a festive food station stocked with snacks, including a clever "Preggos Pickle Bar", and precious cupcakes and cookies made to look like buttons. We're always fans of fun and personal activities at baby showers, and at this one, guests each helped sew sections of a quilt for baby Bella. Finch Sewing Studio provided the fabrics and coordinated the colors with the nursery. Guests also got to take some sewing fun home with them in the form of super cute mini sewing kit favors!

Sweet Root Village captured all of the beautiful images. Be sure to check out the full gallery for more!
