I love Pier 1 Imports stuff so I was delighted to be able to get choose some Pier 1 outdoor goods to make my outdoor parties more inviting. And really, the outdoor goods I chose will make my deck more of an everyday outdoor oasis too! With Pier 1, it is easy to create an Outdoor Oasis Party.
I participated in this campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Pier 1 Imports. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Pier 1 Imports Outdoor Oasis Party
First I looked at Pier1.com and Pier1 on Pinterest for some outdoor party inspiration. I found plenty of inspiration! In fact, I was practically salivating over all the beautiful outdoor settings. I loved the Summer Brights theme with colorful accents and vivid pops of color from everything to cushions to lanterns. I also loved the Coastal Views theme which was full of gorgeous blues and greens that make you feel like you are seaside!
Then I went into the Pier 1 Imports Store and looked around in person. I saw so many pretty things and was wondering how I would ever manage to pick. Then I saw these Summer Brights cushions with a cheerful floral design and I knew I had a winner. Not only would these cushions make my outdoor oasis party more visually inviting but also more comfortable. I love things that serve a dual purpose so I was sold and I got four cushions to fit my outdoor dining set. Even my cat loves the comfort of the cushions!
Then I choose a matching throw pillow to put on my wooden bench and tie the whole outdoor area together. I also chose a beautiful multi colored glass lantern that would add decor and hold citronella tea candles to repel bugs(dual purpose again!) Finally I went with a bright cloth napkins to carry through on the fun colorful theme.
I invited a few friends and their children over for a little “Outdoor Oasis” party. The weather was perfect- sunny and bright. The kids played outdoors on the swing set and with a badminton set and the adults congregated on the porch and chit chatted.
We all enjoyed a little outdoor feast. I ended up serving wraps, potato chips and ranch dip, tortilla chips and salsa, and assorted beverages. My guests brought pink watermelon, yellow watermelon, ice cream, and lemon meringue pie!
The Pier 1 outdoors items really went along way towards creating more visual appeal for my outdoor party and also more comfort! I also like knowing that my new Pier 1 Imports cushions are going to last- they are weather and fade resistant.
I would really love to get some of the Pier 1 Imports outdoor furniture. I just love their couch sets and I need a new dining set too. It is all on my “someday list”! You can check out the the Pier 1 Imports Outdoor Collection here. What items would you choose for your own “Outdoor Oasis” party?
