I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.
Close your eyes and envision: the sounds of waves crashing on shore, the compelling smells of salt water and tropical sunblock, feeling the sand between your toes and sun on your back, all while sipping your favorite cool beverage. That’s my idea of the perfect summer day. While you might not have the luxury of living in Florida where a game of summer roulette can help you decide on a different beach each day, you can bring the idea of summer to your backyard. Celebrate Summer with an Outdoor Oasis Party with the help of Pier 1 Imports.
Pier 1 Imports has everything you need to take you from summer’s first warm day through picnics, parties, family dinners or weekends at the beach. I headed in store for inspiration for my Outdoor Oasis Party and found an abundance of items that I couldn’t live without. With summer brights, and coastal view colors like oceanic blues and beautiful greens, I found the perfect items for my backyard BBQ. What made it even better was the prices and sales which stretched my budget even further.
One of my favorite purchases from Pier 1 is my new Papasan chair in a bright teal hue. The frame and cushions come in a variety of colors, making it easy for guests to find the perfect match for their decor. It’s also a fairly light chair to move, making it convenient for inside and outside use.
This daisy pinwheel stake moves when the wind blows and offers a budget-friendly decor for the yard. I also couldn’t pass up this mini Swingasan cell phone holder that replicates their full-sized Swingasan chairs, also offered in different colors and styles. This Peacock Swingasan is pretty neat.
Our Outdoor Oasis Party would not be complete without guests and good grub. We dined on traditional summer menu items like burgers, hotdogs, chips, potato salad, and more. I made a summer punch with rainbow sherbert and sprite for a fun and colorful beverage everyone could enjoy.
The weather could not have been better – with 90’s heat, we easily slipped in the pool to cool off and enjoy some fun in the sun. The kids especially enjoyed the pool, and I’m proud to say my 6-year-old is officially swimming without fear of the water or using flotation devices! That was a super proud parent moment to experience.
Let your décor reflect the best in summer — easy, fun and vibrant! Remember to treat your outdoor space as an extension of your home. Many times people don’t consider utilizing their outdoor space for entertaining, but this is an opportunity to go bold! Mix and match colors and patterns, personalize your space with accents, like artwork, planters, lighting, and more.
My guests were really impressed with my outdoor overhaul thanks to Pier 1 Imports Outdoor Collection. My best friend really loved the Papasan chair. The matching bowl, paper plates, and umbrella straws were all added touches to make my Outdoor Oasis Party a success. All of the products mentioned today are available at your local Pier 1 Imports both in-store and online.
