A Sophisticated Halloween Dinner Table Setting

Holy smokes, how is it basically Halloween already?! The Pinterest bosses have spoken, and they’re officially saying you’re all about finding spooky inspiration these days. Aside from candy and costumes, you can also never go wrong with a sophisticated Halloween dinner table setting, even if it’s sans some of the creepy.

This slightly moody, but mostly romantic setup is perfect for a Fall dinner with friends or scary movie watch party. We’ve teamed up with Bloomingdale’s for this dinner ensemble,

Colorful DIY Door Handle Tassels

DIY Decorative Door Handle Tassels by Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, a top lifestyle blog in Houston, Texas

CAMEL SWAG: a.k.a. tassels, poms and other adornments used exactly the way the name implies: to decorate camels during times of celebration in India. I, Erin, enamored by the color mayhem finding its way into interior design, couldn’t help but interpret the trend through these oversized colorful DIY door handle tassels.

They’re perfect for hanging on door handles around the house for an added boost of color and texture. The typically labor intensive tassel-making process (there’s a reason they’re so expensive!),

Moscow Mule Float

Moscow Mule Float by Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, a top lifestyle blog in Houston, Texas

Who doesn’t love a boozy float? It’s the nostalgia of slurping down soda floats, but with the perks of being an adult! Turning your favorite cocktail into a float is always a fun way to beat the heat.

For citrus based cocktails, the easiest way to do these is by taking the sour and sweet ingredients from the drink and replacing them with sorbet. So I, Ashley, created this Moscow Mule Float using tart homemade lime sorbet to make a citrusy,

Our Travels To: Hamilton, Bermuda!

Our travel guide Hamilton, Bermuda and The Hamilton Princess Fairmont by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

While Jared and I are spending the long weekend in Houston working on recovering from our very uncool friend Harvey,  it seemed like a fitting time to reminisce on sunnier days like our recent trip to Hamilton, Bermuda. If you love

If you love color, clear water beaches, and possibly one of the easiest out-of-country beach destinations ever, then Bermuda is totally for you! Especially if you’re expecting, like us. Bermuda is still 100% Zika free, so it’s basically a dream destination for soon to be mamas.

Round Top Blogger Retreat: A Pastel Poolside Brunch

Round Top Blogger Retreat: A Pastel Poolside Brunch by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

Though Summer is quickly winding down, I think we can all agree that staring at some poolside brunch photos will do the heart good. Plus, there’s tex-mex so what’s not to love?

As part two of our blogger retreat in Round Top, Texas (you can see part one here if you missed it!) it’s all about…more eating (ha!), flowers, fields of horses, and the cutest shops in Round Top. Basically all of my favorite things,

Round Top Blogger Retreat: A Farmhouse Dinner Tablescape

Round Top Blogger Retreat: A Farmhouse Dinner Tablescape by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of sugar and cloth

It seems bittersweet to talk about my love of Texas with the remnants of Hurricane Harvey still going strong, but also as good a time as any to celebrate home! You may remember our trip to Round Top, Texas for a blogger retreat that we got to host for a group of blogger friends across the country from IG stories and sneak peeks in July.

The group we got to share the weekend with is one that I’ve been apart of online for that last few years,

Helping Houston: Storm Update + Hosting a Harvey Relief Donation Drive

Helping Houston: Storm Update + Hosting a Harvey Relief Donation Drive by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of sugar and cloth

I can’t even begin to tell you how much it breaks my heart to see the devastation happening in Houston right now during storm Harvey. It’s so surreal to see it all unfold literally right outside our bedroom window.

We’re happy to report that we’re safe at home (though surrounded by flood waters making transportation near impossible), and only have minimal damage to the studio as of Monday evening. Thank you all so much for the messages and emails checking in to see how we’re doing!
