The Blog Hop is officially over. But the Party goes on!


EDITED TO ADD: PLEASE CHECK THE GRAND GIVEAWAY POST TO SEE LIST OF WINNERS! THANKS FOR HOPPING ALONG!

To keep you in the party mood, I've put together a brief list of links to make your summer entertaining more fun - or at least this morning's cup of coffee:)




Some parties are more formal - or organized - than others.
I'm thinking wedding and baby showers.
For those you might need to send out invitations.

Fabric Postcard Invitation

Summer Garden Birthday Invitations {beautiful use of Nicey Jane! fabric}





A more formal party may call for more formal table dressing than placemats.
You could even make these as gifts.

Try Jaybird's Family Traditions Tutorial for a full ensemble.

Or try a variation of these summery ones with rick rack




Table treats for guests

fortune cookies

fabric candy dishes



Perfect for bringing your food to a potluck dinner:

A Casserole Carrier {fresh from Moda Bake Shop July 1st}





It seems everyone enjoys a good apron.


See Bari J.'s free tutorial for a glamorous one here

Here's a fun, retro vintage one

I really like the Sassy Apron from Barb Brandeburg -
this one's available as different size patterns

What's a party without some bunting?

Here's a basic bunting tutorial with lots of photos.

Here's a lovely one made with vintage hankies - sweet for an outdoor tea party.

There's lots more to a party,
but we'll finish our link list with some of my favourite hostess gifts:

The Friendship bag by Rachel of p.s. I quilt

Coasters! Selvage or otherwise, coasters make great hostess/teacher gifts


Fireworks bring us to the end of the party! Thanks for joining me this week. I really enjoyed your comments and am happy to see my idea of a hop become such a success.


With Joy,
Sarah Vee
