Our Outdoor Oasis Party And Giveaway For A Pier 1 Imports Gift Card #Pier1OutdoorParty #Sponsored #MC

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.

We moved into a new house this winter that has a big backyard.  This is something we didn’t have at our old house. I was so excited to finally set up our outdoor oasis and do some summer entertaining now that the weather is warm.  I visited Pier 1 Imports and found a HUGE selection of gorgeous outdoor products.

My daughter loved all the lanterns and helped me set them all up.  Pier 1 Imports has paper and glass lanterns in all different colors and styles.  I want to go back and get more.  They are such an fun an festive touch to an outdoor party. Some people are afraid to create a statement outside because… it’s outside! But this is the opportunity to be bold and go beyond your comfort zone. Anything goes!

Pier 1 blue pillow

I invited my 4 best friends and their spouses over to enjoy our newly decorated outdoor oasis.  10 is the perfect number for an outdoor celebration. My girlfriends were immediately drawn to the fun throw pillows. The textures and colors create a great atmosphere.

Pier 1 Imports has a big selection of throw pillows that are made to be outdoors.  They are UV-protected and weather-resistant, unlike normal throw pillows.  The colors, patterns and textures of the them all were beautiful.  I really want to go back and get more.  My friends were obsessed with them and had no idea that throw pillows even existed that were made for the outdoors.

Pier 1 salad

I made one of my favorite summer recipes; roasted tomato, garlic, basil and arugula salad topped with burrata and balsamic glaze.  It was delicious.

I paired our food with some white wine.  It was a perfect accompaniment to the salad.  I got these super cute glasses at Pier 1 Imports that look like fancy wine glasses, but are actually plastic.  I loved that they still look elegant, but we wouldn’t have any broken glass. Pier 1 Imports’ outdoor dinnerware and drinkware is pretty enough for indoors but tough enough for outdoors.

Everyone had a great time enjoying our new outdoor oasis and no one wanted the night to end.  We decided we need to have parties in our outdoor oasis all summer long.

    My husband and I are under contract to purchase our first townhouse next month. After years of apartment living, we will have our first outdoor space, and I cannot wait to put my special touch on it!

    I like to create an oasis in our front porch.

  11. Holly | 12th Jun 14

    Looks like so much fun! I love Pier 1. We just bought all-new patio furniture from there: 2 sofas, a chair, new table and chairs, and rugs!

  12. Amy Orvin | 12th Jun 14

    I do. The side of my house would be a great space for an oasis.

  13. rundoodlerun | 13th Jun 14

    My husband and I are still just starting out – much of our outdoor furniture is second-hand. It would be awesome to fit our things with new cushions/pillows, to give them a look that is more “us” than eclectic and over-used hand-me-down.

  14. amanda whiltey | 13th Jun 14

    i would love to turn my back yard into an oasis.

  15. Vera K | 14th Jun 14

    Yes! I would love to jazz up my patio.

  16. Laurel C | 14th Jun 14

  22. Birdiebee | 16th Jun 14

    I have a patio that needs to be updated into a summer oasis.

  23. Susan DeVaux | 16th Jun 14

    We have a nice patio but only a table and chairs. I would love to update it and make it more relaxing.

  24. Charlene on the Run | 16th Jun 14

    I live in a downtown condo, so it’s all about the terrace. A chair, maybe a birdcage if I decide to get a bird. A city townhouse, I’d decorate the roof a bit.

  25. Nicole-Lynn | 16th Jun 14

    What a pretty tablescape and that food looked so yummy! Yes, I’d love to create a little oasis in our backyard! I love their Kaleidoscope Jute Trim Pillow in Clay and those aqua acrylic cups you used! So nice!

  26. Tara Huff | 17th Jun 14

    Yes! My back patio would make a lovely oasis!
