I’m super, super excited to announce the first Sugar & Cloth floral workshop happening this September in Houston. It’s still kind of surreal that it’s even an option to have workshops now that we have the new studio. Before all I could’ve hosted was a small get together in my livingroom to watch my cat Thomas do his same three party tricks, and one of the three is just a stone cold death stare. I mean, I know a few people who might’ve bought tickets, but I still would’ve done down in history for that one.

Good news is I’ve teamed up with Maria of Maxit Flower Design to bring the pro tips considering I happen to kill things slowly, and not quite as poetically as the Fugees sang it. Although I can make a mean alphabet out of pretty stems (case in point is the top photo). You win some, you lose some I guess..

Ok I mayyyy have a bit of an obsession with fruit and coconut. I don’t know what it is, but creamy, smooth coconut combined with the juicy, bright flavor of fruit is pretty much a winning combination.

I recently went to a Thai restaurant where I had the classic mango sticky rice dessert, which inspired me to remix it into light, pudding version where tropical mango is paired with a delicate vanilla-infused coconut. It’s the perfect dessert for sitting out on the patio on those hot summer nights!

My current favorite things and things lately…

Honestly, where in the world has July gone? I can’t even talk about how we’re more than halfway to 2015, I feel like this whole year thus far is one giant blur. I’ve still managed for it to be filled with loads of good memories but I can’t help but think I don’t stop and appreciate them enough. I had to remind myself of that when the better part of me was convincing myself that I had too much work to do to go on a long weekend trip starting today, but I don’t want to be in such a routine that I let my whole life pass me by because of work.

All of this to say wish me luck as I let go of the death grip on my computer to head to Gardner State Park… and that there are zero bee encounters while I’m there, but I won’t go into that history lesson right now. In other news, I thought I’d share with you a few updates with things that are going on behind the scenes here at Sugar & Cloth, and a few of my current favorite things from the part of July that I was able to catch…

DIY // Fruit macarons

Yes, it’s only been five days since I’ve last played with my food. This time I had a little encouragement though after a Friday morning meeting with Bite Macarons here in Houston, when naturally I left with two dozen colorful cookies…

Seeing as how the fruit trend is still going full force and I’m surrounding myself with bad macaron influences, I decided I’d try my hand at a little fruit cookie action to make my college art career worthwhile. Luckily my career there wasn’t super impressive and there’s this magical thing called Amazon Prime that sells pre-made royal icing goodies, so these are sure to be do-able for the masses. With all of this in mind, these DIY fruit macarons are surely destined to reignite the dying fruit basket, or kabob, or cake.. I could go on.
