Family Time in the Outdoor Oasis and Giveaway #Pier1OutdoorParty #Sponsored #MC

Do you have a fun outdoor space to hang out with family and friends? Is it inviting and comfortable? How often do you sit out and enjoy it? We have a great outdoor extension to our home but it was in need of a little TLC. My teen daughter and I went shopping at Pier 1 Imports and gave our outdoor porch some new life. I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Pier 1 Imports. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Outdoor Oasis

Our space was green and boring. We have good furniture but lacked fashionable decor. On our trip we decided to create an outdoor oasis which would be great to host brunches, an up and coming bridal party, Father's day celebrations and even an after school party. Since our current color was green we decided to add blue and orange and yellow to the color pallet. Emily and I picked out coastal colors and products to fit our theme. We found beautiful lanterns, pillows, candles, and a fun coastal blue outdoor rug which tied the entire porch together. 


Our shopping trip was successful! Our porch is now beautiful, comfortable and everyone loves hanging out together. Ever since the decor was added there seems to be someone on the porch all the time.
Outdoor Oasis Recipes coming this week on the blog. Check back to get our new outdoor summer favorites!

For our outdoor oasis family party Pier 1 also had this large, 2 gallon Mason Jar serving drink container and individual mason jar glasses to be personalized with chalk for the guest. We made a fruity lemonade which went with the decor of the porch. Everyone enjoyed the fruity drink while waiting for the food to be served.

We made fun summer foods for our gathering. It was a perfect day for easy summer recipes.  The food included BBQ Ribs, Bacon Potato Salad, fresh veggies, fruit salad, Zippy Coleslaw and German Chocolate Cake. We also served wine. It was a great afternoon of family time. It isn't always easy to get everyone together for a meal so this party was a lot of fun. 

I have to say that our favorite product is the outdoor rug because it pulls the entire area together. Besides that we love the Mason jar serving container and individual jars. These products will be enjoyed for years! While shopping, my daughter and I created a few wish list items to add to our new outdoor oasis. We are saving up money for them.

When was the last time you shopped at Pier 1? Are you having your own outdoor oasis party this summer? I hope you consider shopping at Pier 1 and check out their Imports Outdoor Collection. You'll be instantly inspired! Stop on over at the Pier 1 Imports website and see what is in their collection.
