Bar Cart Series ... No. 1 Sweet Tea Heather


I am thrilled to launch a new series today, one I have been working on for a while.  With the amazing comeback of the bar cart in the last few years there are incredible styled bar carts practically everywhere I look.  As a girl who is passionate about her bar carts I love to style mine for every day and special occasions. I even make up reasons to change up my carts.  And yes, I do have more than one.


The series kicks off with the bar cart of the darling Sweet Tea Heather.  Heather lives in Savannah with her husband and their precious pup Lucy. She is the author of the lifestyle blog Sweet Tea Jubilee where she shares her fashion finds, love for all things Lilly Pulitzer, adventures and daily inspiration.  I am mad for her Wednesday Wishlist series. Her precious Instagram posts are a favorite of my daily addiction.

When I asked Heather to share her inspiration for the bar cart styling she was more than happy to share ...

"Our bar cart is right off our kitchen and it's my favorite little spot to decorate for each season, you'll see that I like it to change it up a lot! I'm a huge fan of blue and white so it was easy to incorporate a little red into the bar cart for a fun patriotic feel for the summer.

The 4th of July holds a special meaning for me because I actually got married on the 4th in Charleston last summer! For the bar cart, I included some of the napkins we had made for the wedding and the little mini champagne bottles and Lilly coasters were from my bridal brunch the morning of the wedding. The "H & R" letters were actually used behind the bar during our reception. It's so fun to get to repurpose these items because it always reminds me of my favorite day!"  

Don't you love it even more now!  I am obsessed with every little detail and the incredible sentimental meaning.  Heather indulged me in answering a few questions to share more about herself and the places she finds inspiration.

First of all, tell me about you.  How did the blog begin?

I first started a Tumblr blog right after college because I loved having a creative outlet and constantly seeking inspiration. A couple years later, I decided to start a real blog for same reason! I love sharing all of my fashion finds, things that inspire me, and of course- styled bar carts!

What is your idea of the perfect day?

Any day spent by the water with a yummy drink in my hand. Bonus points if it's spent with my husband, family, best friends and puppy!


You have just been gifted $100, what do you do with it?

I would love to say something really creative but I'm sure I would probably just buy a new Lilly Pulitzer dress, because I definitely don't have enough already. ;)

Coffee or tea?

I love my coffee in the mornings, but I also love hot tea in the wintertime.




White or red?

I usually like white in the spring/summer and red in the fall/winter though I'll take a glass of rosé or bubbly all year round! :)

Favorite cocktail to order?

Peach Bellini- it was my signature cocktail at my wedding last summer!

What inspires you?

I love to look for inspiration in nature! Whether it's the cotton candy colors in a summer sunset or bright, bold, blooms, I think God's natural creations are some of the most amazing things!




If I spotted you on a random Saturday what would you be doing and what would you be wearing?

In the summer, I would probably be out on the boat with my husband and puppy, wearing my bathing suit, monogrammed PFG shirt, and Lilly shorts.

What is your favorite way to unwind?

A glass of wine, online shopping, and Netflix... The Office if I'm with my husband, Gilmore Girls if it's just me! 




Five must haves.

My favorite summer must haves would have to be...
1. La Croix sparkling water- piña fraise and mango are my favorite flavors
2. It Cosmetics "Your Skin But Better" CC Cream- a great lightweight CC cream with SPF50+, I put this on my face every morning
3. Vita Liberata self tanning mouse- I have fair skin that doesn't tan very well so I love to use this mouse for a safe summer glow
4. Tory Burch Miller Sandals- I wear my tan patent sandals almost every single day, they are easily my most comfortable shoes I own!
5. A smile- ok so cheesy I know, but I'm convinced that if you can just make yourself smile even when you don't feel like it, you can instantly feel better... and an added bonus- you can make others feel better too! :) :) :) 

Favorite quote. 


"Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day."

I simply love how Heather styled her bar cart.  Those light up letters are darling and all of the red, white and blue is perfect for summer.  I have ordered a set of her darling monogrammed napkins for myself and I may or may not have hunted down the festive bottles of champs.  Aren't they amazing? 

Well done sweet girl, you have inspired me to go all out for my carts for July 4th and I can't wait to use your amazing monogrammed items.  I see some serious red, white and blue in my future!  Thank you for indulging my request and sharing your bar cart with us.  It is ah-mazing but so are you!  xo 

Chin, chin its Friday!!
