Well it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day unless half the room has a sugar high on February 14th, so we’re helping you stand out amongst the giving crowds with these DIY spiked lollipops. They wouldn’t exactly double as kid friendly, so I wouldn’t recommend packaging the extras up to send to school, but you’re Galentine’s and Valentine’s will thank you!

I also couldn’t resist having a little too much fun with the color on these, because fancy lollies call for fancy styling do they not?! Okay, so maybe they just look like jellyfish on a stick, but I can still get behind that.

Don’t be too intimidated though, we also snuck in a SUPER easy alternative for spiked lollies for those of you that aren’t quite committed enough to make them from scratch…

I love having people over for meals, and I’m definitely a magpie for anything that will add some fun to the table. From breakfast to dinner, making a bit of a styling effort every now and again with some flowers, cute placements, a runner, or in this case a DIY candle holder, will always set the tone. 

It immediately makes things feel just a little bit more special and indulges my inner stylist. This DIY is also super simple to make, and even though it does involve some painting, I, Teri, used the easiest pattern ever (it looks even better when it’s not 100% perfect!).

With this monochrome base you can change up your candle colors to fit your mood or your table colors (like pink for Valentine’s Day!), or even try adding some gold or copper candles for an extra luxe look…

I, Erin, am fairly certain one can never have too many serving dishes, especially finger food trays that are a snap to load up and set out when people are coming over. This DIY concrete tray mixes the industrial texture of concrete with smooth brass to set a modern scene for whatever you’ve got on the menu. And in the case of Sugar & Cloth…macarons!

But seriously, how cute would these be on this concrete tray?! Read on for the scoop on how to create one for your next gathering..
