in the know? let us know & win a Classic Caroline necklace!

The South is home of sweet tea.  Whether a native born southerner or a snowbird, eventually everyone drinks it.  We have started taking ours half & half and sometimes with lemon aid {an Arnold Palmer as the Southern Set has coined it}. 

Henri's Bakery, one of our favorite places to imbibe, delights Atlanta with treats from sweet tea to petit fours.  We want to know, who makes your favorite cup?

Please post your favorite spot below and we'll pick a winning restaurant to post to our blog and on Facebook - and the lucky lady who submits will win a Classic Caroline necklace for her spot-on taste!

To enter, post to Facebook or below this post and let us know who brews your favorite Sweet Tea!  Feel free to tag us in your Facebook, Instagram Photos, YouTube and Pinterest drinking your favorite cup. 

Winner will be selected based on creativity Monday, March 4th.  No purchase necessary - purchasing an item will not increase your chances of winning.  Necklace ships only to US or Canadian Addresses.

Drink up Swells!

The Hostess with the Mostess...

Are you the hostess with the mostess this Oscar night? We are all abuzz with the giltz & glamour surrounding tonight's event and we'll take just about any excuse to get the girls together for a night of home made apps, champagne cocktails, and giggling around the TV rating the red carpet dresses.

Just to celebrate, we've rounded up some of our favorite ideas for creating a super Swell {yet totally simple} Oscar night of your own & some easy but elegant appetizers.  Get inspired by the beauty and glamor and grab some Swell Caroline all your own {oh, and go Bananas, totally R. Zoe worthy}!

Setting the Scene: 
  • Bow Tie Cupcake Toppers: These would be simple to DIY using cardstock paper & toothpicks. Make cupcakes in the flavor of your choice, and then add this topper to give it the red carpet treatment!
  • DIY Tinsel Stirrers: How festive are these gold tinsel stirrers from the Glitter Guide's Oscar Party?
  • Striped Chair Ties: Give chairs instant Oscar glam using striped fabric & tinsel to tie bows around the chairs. Using fabric is in  because it can be reused for other events.
Oscar Worthy Jewels:
  • Marari Necklace: Affordable luxury, this stunning bib necklace will turn heads and make you feel like you're the move star!
  • Forget Me Knot Earrings: These black stunners are sure to cause a scene; pair with a chic chignon updo & red lipstick.
  • St. Barth Necklace: This genuine Turquoise and silver statement piece would fit right in on the red carpet and will do double duty for your next beach sojourn!
