If Mother’s Day weekend brings nothing else, it’s flowers! To add a little flair to that tradition, I thought these DIY floral macarons would be good inspiration for those of you looking for a last-minute something sweet special. Granted, you may have some very colorful fingertips if you’re not used to coloring on cookies with food markers, but they will look awesome nonetheless! Even better if you gift them along with some Rifle Paper Co. goodness, which inspired them!
I also love the idea of displaying the floral macarons with fresh bay leaves on a dessert table, or even on a tray at home in lieu of the traditional floral centerpiece. That or you can combine the two and you’ll have yourself one super happy Mom and Instagram feed. Clearly I have no life when everything comes back to photo-ops. Don’t judge me guys, I try…
For those of you that loved my DIY gold foil brushstroke pillow, you’re in luck! You can now buy the kit to make your own tote bag version (or just keep on making those pillows!) with our DIY gold foil brushstroke kit in collaboration with Brit + Co! Best news yet? It’s less than $20 so you can make all of your friends grab one too for a very shiny craft night or afternoon brunch plans.
You can shop your kit here with custom color tote bags and all! Once you finish your project, be sure to tag it with #mysugarandcloth so we can follow along!

Hello! Carisa from Camp Pretty here with a super simple statement party
piece. A painted wood birthday cake. (or candle holder, whichever you
prefer) A quick weekend project for a great long time staple centerpiece.
Great for a birthday party, placing it on a cake stand or evening event
to provide some ambiance.

As some of you may know, my cactus train has been ready and roaring since this little DIY several months ago, and I don’t plan to come to a screeching halt with it any time soon! Good news is my friends support the obsession, so when I met up with Kelly in Los Angeles last week for work, we decided to go full force with a cactus inspired brunch party with Lowe’s so we could catch up with some of our favorite West coast bloggers all in one place!
I think it’s actually physically impossible for us to cut corners when it comes to a celebration, so we have a jam packed party full of printable placemats, menu cards, budget friendly DIY favors (with some very unexpected Lowe’s supplies!), avocado donuts, and of course, my token macarons with cacti on them…
