my favorite addition to the backyard...

the south seas side cart         

When school’s out for summer, I love spending most of my time in the backyard barbecuing with the family, entertaining friends, and enjoying quiet dinners in the cool shade of our outdoor dining area.  

With all those warm-weather requirements, my Serena & Lily South Seas Side Cart and I are ready to handle all my outdoor entertaining needs!

We experienced a little bit of a heatwave earlier this week and it’s been so nice having this handy dandy cart to transport tableware and food from the kitchen to our alfresco dining area.

Not only is it convenient, but look at how cute it is! The fun coastal style is all you need as an inspiration point for any simmer gathering. It definitely sets the tone for any party!

Paired with some adorable napkins, my favorites are these gingham ones, and brightly colored glassware, it’s definitely easy to create the backyard fiesta of your dreams!

Monday was a super fun day for me because we shot a magazine spread for Cottages and Bungalows magazine’s Coastal issue for 2020, so we of course included the South Seas Side Cart in our styling of my outdoor dining area near the fire pit.

It’s so handy for holding all those extra essential like drinks, plates and lemons… gotta have lots of lemons!  

Here’s an up-close look at my favorite backyard accessory of the summer. 

BTW, it's not made to withstand the elements outdoors, so I do bring it into the house when I'm not using it.

And you know what? In the house, it’s also so cute as an end table next to a sofa or as a nightstand! It’s sturdy enough to hold a lamp, a few books and more!

Here’s a selection of my Serena & Lily faves that are featured in these photos…

1. The always classic Riviera Side Chair (click here) are perfect indoors or out.

2. My favorite Gingham Napkins (click here) that you’ve seen me style for a Christmas tablescape and also for an unexpected pop of pattern at my Valentine’s Day table.

3. The super cozy Mendocino Linen Throw (click here), also great for indoor- outdoor use.

4. And of course, the South Seas Side Cart (click here). It’s the smallest of the South Seas Carts, and oh so handy!
