Halloween Jamboree 2017

Spooky costumes, yummy treats and goodie bag galore. This year we had the absolute pleasure of hosting our annual Halloween party at our new location on 2nd Street! From pumpkin decorating to Spanish story time, we had an absolute blast and definitely made it a Halloween to remember. A photo wall, oodles of candy and fangtastic refreshments pulled the whole party together.¬†We even had a caricature artist at the store to capture everyone’s look!

Take a peek at a few snapshots from the event ūüôā

As usual, we hosted a costume contest complete with prizes. The outfits this year were absolutely killer! It was such a treat to see everyone look so festive — choosing only three winners was so difficult.

After hours of contemplating who had the most fear-inspiring outfits, we managed to narrow it down. A special congratulations to our winners!

What a SPOOKTACULAR Time!

We had such a spooktacular time this past Halloween weekend at our Halloween POP UP SHOP + Costume Contest!

We had the pleasure of showcasing local talent, designer, Kara Lewis from Oxeyedbaiby. Kara debuted an exclusive line for Sweet Threads  of beautiful handmade pieces that consisted of Gemma rompers and Iris playsuits. What makes these even more special are the vintage lace cut out design, making each piece one-of-a-kind.

Take a peek at some of the shots from the Oxeyedbaiby Pop Up Shop!

Sweet Threads Halloween Costume Contest 2013

This year was Sweet Threads’ 1st Halloween Costume contest and we had such a blast seeing how creative our followers got with dressing their little ones. Kids were dressed in classic characters such as Alice in Wonderland all the way down to award winning TV shows like Walking Dead! Check out how rad these kids look! Now we’re wondering who had more fun dressing up. The kids or the parents? ;P
