Oktoberfest is one of my favorite times of year. I suppose being of German descent, and having lived in Germany for just over five years, probably has a lot to do with it! My love for the German culture even extends to my favorite breed of dog – the dachshund, aka weenie dog, doxie, sausage dog...the nicknames go on and on. I grew up with the breed, and have two of my own now, and something about them is just so stinking adorable to me. Their long awkward bodies; the way the walk; their long floppy ears, and chunky paws – every little bit of them makes me smile! I have been itching to throw a doxie-themed party for a while now, and the lig...

If that doesn't make you, like totally, think 80's big hair then I don't know what does!

Howdy y'all! We kicked up our boots and welcomed summer with the glitteriest cowgirl party in town!

All the S&S hostesses wore their fancy kicks for the occasion, and we had a little fun before the little gals arrived, taking pictures and decorating.

The theme was leaned towards shabby chic with a color palette of aqua, pale pink, gold and lavender. Of course, burlap and lace were not to be left out!  

The cowgirl hats were fancied up with pink cording and lavender spray painted sheriff's badges.

The soft colors blended perfectly with the existing decor of the boutique. 

One of our crafts of the night consisted of mini piggy...

How do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day? At Sugar & Spice we like to celebrate all things green with glitter, jewels, mini-makeovers and fashion shows. This year's Emeraldalicious GNO was made fun by these cuties you see here...

...and not a single one of them is wearing GREEN! Goodness gracious how did that happen?! We do have green dresses and accessories, but they were just not interested. #ohwell #wetried #wegettopinchthemall

After a dinner of cheese pizza (our personal fave), we devoured yummy Lucky Charms Treats and cupcakes. 

Everything looks better with a gold glitter shamrock on top. #justsayin 

The mouth-watering popcorn was a treat w...

My ever so wonderful and handy hubby built me a reindeer food stand that we intended to have outside our store during downtown McKinney's Home for the Holidays festival that takes place every year the weekend after Thanksgiving. Well, it rained, and rained, and rained some more (so much so that the front of our store flooded...ugh!) and my adorable stand didn't get to have the debut I had intended.


So, as Valentine's Day approached, I thought... hmm... how fun would it be to set up a kissing booth outside the store, and let everyone visiting our quaint little downtown partake in a little photo fun?!


We set it up Friday afternoon, and immed...

We had so much fun celebrating friendship with our little galentines Frozen Fever style! The popularity of Frozen is as strong as ever, so we figured if we can't beat 'em, join 'em! I just love the bright and spring-y colors associated with the new movie - really makes me ready for longer days and warmer weather!


Our yummy treats for the evening consisted of cupcakes, pink candy dipped Rice Krispie treats, and colorful popcorn from the Mom and Popcorn Company in downtown McKinney.


How cute are those little French milk bottles?! SUPA cute if you ask me! I wanted to jazz them up a little, so added some polka dot ribbon and little flowers tha...

Welcome to the Made of Sugar and Spice Blog...we're so glad you're here!

Meet our fabulous Sugar and Spice Management team! I would be nowhere without the hard work, dedication, and attention to detail these young ladies provide.

They are each unique in their personalities, hobbies, likes and dislikes, but so similar in their willingness to go the extra mile to ensure our Parties, Camps and Girls' Nights are super fun and well executed. They are all so silly and energetic, which is a huge bonus when working with little girls...lord knows I don't have the stamina I used to! ;)

I may dream up the ideas, but these gals are the ones that put them...
