Making Memories And Sharing Moments! #Pier1OutdoorParty #Giveaway @Pier1 #MC #Sponsored

*I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1 Imports. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.


    This past Memorial Day, we hosted an Outdoor Oasis party in order to make some precious memories and to share special moments with our friends and loved ones.  It was very fortunate that Mother Nature was kind to us and graced us with some sunny and mild weather for our special event.  Since we were partying outdoors and expecting about ten guests, we were definitely hoping that it wouldn’t rain and spoil all our fun.


    We consider Memorial Day to be a very traditional holiday so we planned for our event to feel like a good old fashioned family barbecue which we knew everyone would enjoy.  As I decorated our outdoor space, I made sure that there were plenty of snack plates filled with chips and foods that all the kids would love.

     Also, having beautiful new outdoor accessories from Pier 1 Imports made me confident that everyone would enjoy having their beverages in my new green pitcher and goblet set  and outdoor mason jars.  Since the pitcher of Kiwi Strawberry juice matched the green goblets, everyone remarked that it looked beautiful sparkling in the sunlight.

    While Hubby was working his magic by making hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, I found my mother admiring the outdoor mason jar that she was drinking out of.  I commented to her that this set of drinking jars was my favorite of all the items that I had purchased for my party at Pier 1 Imports.  She really liked the fact that, although they were not made of real glass, they were pretty and practical for drinking from them outdoors and allowing the kids to drink out of them safely without breaking.  I couldn’t agree more!

    During my visit to Pier 1, I fell in love with some of the items in their Outdoor Collection that I plan on incorporating into my next summer gathering.  This Outdoor chair caught my eye because I like the fact that you can customize the cushions you use with it to match your own decor:

    Also, I couldn’t help but notice the Echo Beach Outdoor Collection because it allowed me to visualize how my loved ones would lounge around and swap stories and jokes while sitting comfortably on this set:

    Thanks to the items that I picked up from the Pier 1 Outdoor Collection, our Outdoor Oasis party was a huge hit!  Not only was the food and the company great but the decor was warm and inviting which suited our guests perfectly.  Don’t just take my word for it though!  Make sure you head out to your local Pier 1 Imports store and check out the Outdoor Collection for yourself!  I’m sure you will find the inspiration for your own Outdoor Oasis summer party there just as I did!

Let’s Discuss:  What are some of your favorite ways to entertain your friends and loved ones outdoors?
