Frank and I love to host get-togethers for our friends and family and recently had the opportunity to throw our very own “Outdoor Oasis” Party.  Our party was a huge hit thanks to Pier 1 Imports and Mom Central.  After shopping at Pier 1 Imports, I was amazed at how many different items and affordable prices I found for our “Outdoor Oasis.”  We had a blast shopping!

At Pier 1 Imports, you’ll find everything you need to take you from summer’s first warm day through picnics, parties, family dinners or weekends at the beach.  I loved the décor we found!  Not only was their a great selection, we had great customer service and walked out with a lot of goodies for the amount of money we spent.  Plus, all of our goodies were on sale!

Our goodies were perfect for summer – easy, fun and vibrant!  Did you know that a great way to embrace your table as a main focal point is to combine your favorite accessories, such as handcrafted trays, detailed lanterns and a colorful bouquet.  These create cheerful centerpieces that make it instantly feel like summer.  What if you don’t have a table?  No problem!  Serving carts bring the party to the action, whether it’s on the patio, in the garden or poolside.

Enjoy your backyard as the sun goes down as well.  Create a welcoming and romantic atmosphere with a variety of outdoor lanterns and LED candles placed around your patio.  I especially love the wind chimes with the solar ball in the middle.  It charges throughout the day and then lights up in the evening.  I get the same effect from the garden stakes with the solar ball.  It’s beautiful during the day and at night!

We had a great time at our “Outdoor Oasis” Party!  We cooked up chicken and ribs on the barbecue, played games and enjoyed good conversation with our friends and family.  Plus, we sent them each home with some special 10% off coupons.  They loved that, especially after seeing all the goodies we had in our “Outdoor Oasis.”
