To set the mood, create an invitation that includes illustrations on knitting basics (see below) in the background and then use vellum paper on top with the party information. Embellish with a bow made with yarn.
For decoration get balls of yarn and place in an oversized clear vase.
Food – offer finger appetizers and bite size desserts
Drink – Sherbert Punch
