The studio launch party has officially come and gone, but it was one heck of a good time! We wanted to do something this time around that would let us celebrate with lots of people as opposed to the five hour nap/coma that I took after getting the last studio in gear. We’re not quite ready to share the full reveal with you on the new studio, but we’re almost there!
For now, I will keep you entertained with a poptail recipe, favor bags, photo ops, and macaron ice cram sandwiches… oh, and a giveaway!

I think I’ve now procrastinated to the perfect timing for recapping our 24 hours in Miami now that it’s been just long enough for me wish I was back at the beach. I always go through the whole “I’m ready to be in my own bed” phase, and then end up changing my tune after t-minus one week of being back to the regular grind at home. I guess the grass is always greener on the other side, isn’t it?
Nevertheless, we always make sure to jam pack as many cool stops in along the way, and you guys are always full of awesome recommendations! We stayed at the Thompson Miami Beach, and holy gorgeousness, I wanted to steal our entire room and stash it in my suitcase. It’s one big, photogenic ball of mid century goodness…

Since I’m not quite at the stage of having kids just yet, I stick with my fur kids. Thomas and I go way back to my college days when I rescued him from the middle of a four lane road and he was just big enough to fit in the palm of my hand. I bottled fed him,made my dad extremely angry for having a pet in our college rental house, got super attached, and now here we are almost seven years later, with another birthday just around the corner.
He’s spoiled as all get out and refuses to eat any other wet food besides Fancy Feast gravy lover’s and broths (I stopped trying to even trick him into a different kind at least three years ago), so when Fancy Feast approached me about partnering to promote their Ways To Wow campaign featuring the new chicken flavors, I did what any cat parent would do… I tried to see if I could snag a free lifetime supply, of course! Just kidding. I actually just tried to stick a birthday candle in a bowl of Fancy Feast Broths with chicken for a photo-op.
Sadly that didn’t work out, so I went with the next best thing you can put a candle with: DIY animal ear cake toppers. They’re like a step up from a DIY party hat, my friends, except this time everyone at the party will want one…
You guys, there has been so much going on behind the scenes lately that I think I could take a nap for the next whole year… involuntarily. Visiting family in Florida was amazing and now we’re back, full speed ahead on studio projects and events. We’re actually hosting a studio launch party tonight, so be on the lookout for fun event photos (#sugarandclothstudio)!
Oddly enough, the studio isn’t even fully complete (we’re still waiting on a few key pieces of furniture), but I didn’t think it would take nearly this long to get it done, and we started planning the launch party in the beginning of January. I don’t know if that makes me the world’s worst event planner, or if I just have some seriously bad luck with furniture shipments, but hey, we have lots of cute party details to share with you!
Case in point, the awesome cactus pillows that we got to use for photo props from Unicorns4Evaa (I’m in it for the name if nothing else!), and the awesome stay gold stamps we had made from Zazzle for the party invites…
