We’re Engaged!

You guys, we’re engaged! If you follow along on basically any social media channel we have, you’ve probably already heard this news, but I wanted to share the full proposal story with you because that’s what friends do! I should also apologize in advance for my really terrible iPhone and Snapchat photos as my only recap, but once you hear the story you’ll understand why.

In case you’re unfamiliar, Jared and I work together. This means we’re basically together nonstop and I would’ve sworn on my life that I would’ve seen a proposal coming from a mile away.

A Joyful and Modern Dining Room for Summer

How decorate a joyful and modern dining room for Summer! - sugar and cloth - ashley rose - houston blogger

It may not technically be considered Summer yet, but since it’s already in the nineties in Houston, it sure feels like it. I’m half super pumped, and half terrified by how hot it’s going to be by the time August rolls around, but I’m ready to bring on the warm weather entertaining either way!

Air Wick actually asked me to design a space inspired by Summer, and to me Summer means colorful, bright rooms that are perfect for entertaining, while also keeping a laid back,

Frosted Animal Cracker Cake

This frosted animal cracker ice box cake is just as tasty as it is pretty! - Sugar & Cloth - Recipe

Raise your hand if you love summer desserts, but you don’t love all the work that comes with them (I’m talking to you, berry pies!). Is your hand raised? Because if it is, and I’m guessing it is, then you’ll love the dessert I, Alyssa, have whipped up for you today: a frosted animal cracker cake!

Icebox cakes have been a longtime favorite of many for a few reasons. They’re no-bake (a life saver in the summer heat),

Boozy Frozen Hot Chocolate

This boozy frozen hot chocolate recipe will fix your chocolate cravings and the Summer heat! - sugar and cloth

As temps are at their highest and pool time is in it’s primetime, so too is frozen drink season! I whipped up some Strawberry Raspberry Coconut Daiquiris last month, but I wanted something a little less fruity and a little more chocolatey, because who can say no to chocolate! Remember that over the top frozen hot chocolate that people flocked to NYC for (much like the Cronut today, oh food trends). Well, I, Ashley, just realized that I have actually never had one,

Travel in style with an Away luggage giveaway!

Want to travel in style? We're giving away a full Away Luggage set! - away luggage giveaway - sugar and cloth

With all of the traveling we’ve been doing lately, we’ve become VERY attached quality luggage. AKA you only need to experience having your fabric suitcase torn and little under things falling out onto the baggage claim belt once to be truly traumatized, ha! But seriously, that’s a true story and I still have nightmares.

I’ve been using hardshell luggage since, and was so pumped when Away announced that they now have a complete 3 piece set!
