My Dream Mid Summer Outdoor Dinner Party #KmartOutdoor

I love having friends and family over and entertaining just seems to be something I really enjoy doing and am good at.  So, when I had the opportunity to create my Dream Mid Summer Outdoor Dinner Party, I jumped on it!  For my creation, I browsed through the Kmart Outdoor Living Online Catalog, as well as the new Kmart Social Circular.  The Kmart Social Circular is perfect for this time of year, when many of us are making the most out of our backyards.  Whether it’s over a neighborhood barbeque, decorating the yard, or even a backyard date night on the patio, we want our backyards to be a place of relaxation and enjoyment.  But how do we find the inspiration to create our perfect outdoor oasis?  That’s where Kmart comes in.  Kmart is here to help with every item needed to make our outdoor space as warm and welcoming as our indoor spaces are.  From patio furniture, seating sets, lawn furniture and grills, Kmart brings amazing deals on great brands.  Be sure to check back regularly for inspirational designs from real shoppers who have been able to create the perfect Summer space at a great price!

I really enjoyed looking through the catalog and choosing various items with which to create my Dream Mid Summer Backyard Dinner Party.  It gave me a chance to use my imagination and it was the first time I created a Polyvore collage.  As part of my collage, I chose items from Gazebos, Patio Furniture, Grills, Fountains, Lawn Ornament and Statues, Outdoor Lighting, Planters, Heaters, and other Backyard Decor.  I could really picture having friends and family over for a Dinner Party and playing music, socializing, eating, and having a great time!

For my Dinner Party, I wanted a backyard that felt more like an Oasis – a place that is relaxing and  beautiful.  I went for the warmer colors when decorating.  In the home we’re living in, we have a gorgeous backyard.  The only thing about our current outdoor space that isn’t working is the lack of patio furniture and decor.  That’s what really made this campaign fun!
