Cute as a Button Party

Our friends at Kiss Me Kate continue to deliver beautiful and unique party themes.  Kate and Yolanda recently styled a “Cute as a Button” themed birthday party for a client of theirs in Australia.  We loved designing the printable invitation and printable decor for this theme because it is so soft, sweet and versatile!  It would be a great theme for a baby shower, too!

Their adorable Vintage Sewing Party / Cute as A Button First Birthday is oh SEW cute!!  We are thrilled to announce that the printable invitation and coordinating printables are available in our shop here!  Read on for more beautiful photos and the party details (at the bottom of the post) from the sweet girls at Kiss Me Kate.

Kate creates the most beautiful desserts while Yolanda is the master of styling.  I love how Yolanda added button embellishments to our printable folding party labels.

Chocolate bars wrapped in our printable chocolate bar wrapper are a must for Kiss Me Kate parties…. So sweet and an adorable take home favor.

Swooning over the adorable cupcakes with pastel buttons!

The printable favor tag read “Thank you sew much for coming”…. LOVE how she packaged up the favors!

Gorgeous job (once again) by Kiss Me Kate!

Here are all of the party details (told by Kate and Yolanda)…..


We were approached by our client to style a dessert table in celebration of her daughter’s first birthday. We were so excited when we were told that the theme for the party would be ‘As cute as a button’. This is such a gorgeous theme to style and the possibilities endless.

Our client requested a colour palette of soft pastels and wanted the desserts to be themed with buttons. We embellished almost every dessert with pastel buttons and styled the table with vintage sewing accessories. Some of the props included a child’s sewing machine, vintage sewing basket and a designers body form draped with a measuring tape.

The two tiered ombre birthday cake was decorated with an assortment of pastel buttons and personalised with the child’s name. The cake pops, wafer sticks and cupcakes were also adorned with pretty pastel buttons. The backdrop featured a banner of hoops embellished with … you guessed it, more buttons and it read “Sew Cute” All the guests were given a take home favor bag containing a “Cute as a button” photo frame.

We sourced most of our props from fabulous second hand Op shops we have here in Melbourne and found all the beautiful vintage props including the adorable 1950′s KAY-EE doll’s sewing machine, still in perfect working order and old wooden sewing spools.
