It’s been an eventful few weeks around here, and having the second round of sold out workshops with Laura Hooper Calligraphy over the weekend made for a pretty break in our long string of construction work from building out the new studio. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get things finished enough to have the class in the new Sugar & Cloth studio, but the lovely ladies that own the bakery and cafe below our new space also have a studio for events that they kindly let us use (thank goodness!!!), on the other side of the building and it turned out just as nice!
We had the same setup for the morning and afternoon class, and I loved every detail, but especially the florals from Jennifer Laura Design that really pulled the urban space together…

We’re giving Houston classes a whole new twist with this holiday cocktail and entertaining workshop at Julep in Houston, November 23rd! This means the guys don’t have to be afraid to join in because we’re helping you add a little extra something to your holiday party this year by teaching you how to style a picture perfect bar cart at home, cold weather cocktails and recipes you can’t beat, clever ways to serve them, plus a taste of the six staple spirits to have on hand for the season.
In case you’re looking to make this a date night occasion (or just a friend-iversary to hang out with us), you can get 10% off any two tickets between now and 11/10/14 at 12:00am when you enter the code “MERRIER”. Get all of the details and tickets here!
In case you missed out on my recent mini styling sessions at the floral workshop last week, you’re in luck! Macy’s asked if I would show you all how I’d style the new Martha Stewart dining collections this Friday at the Memorial City, and Saturday at the Woodlands Macy’s locations from 1-3pm for free styling for Martha week in celebration of her new collections! I’ll also be available to give you one-on-one style consulting, plus you’ll have a chance to win an autographed copy of Martha’s One Pot book, sample a new recipe and shop the newest Martha Stewart Collections.
Of course I have to add my own little DIY touch too, so expect to see a little confetti, macarons, a touch of gold, and there may even be a few other surprises up my sleeve, so be sure to come by and say hello!
This event and announcement is made in partnership with Macy’s. Thank you for supporting the brands we love that allow us to keep bringing you bigger, better, and free content straight to your inbox.

I know I’m a little late on this, but I’m excited to finally share a few details from the Etsy Pop-Up at West Elm Houston that I hosted and curated! Now whether or not walking up to shops you curated and mentioning that you may or may not stalk them on Instagram and possibly walking by the macaron table that Sweet provided one too many times makes you a good hostess or not is still up for debate. Regardless, I was so excited when West Elm asked me to participate!
I also happened to be able to catch my brother in all of his glory with his very first Smilebooth experience! He’s pretty cute, huh? I’ve been told we look alike..
