Three Fun Girls Outdoor Oasis Party Featuring Pier 1
When I heard my bestie, Rachel from Tools 2 Tiaras was heading to Florida for a visit I figured it was the perfect time to bring together the Three Fun Girls: Rachel, Zippy from Champagne Living and me (of course)! It was all a surprise, but I started planning weeks ahead of time and incorporated it into my Pier 1 Imports Outdoor Oasis themed party. The summer decorating trends this year gave me a lot to choose from, but I finally decided on the Summer Brights! When I went to the store there was so much to choose from too. I fell in love with the table decor as your table should be the entertainment focal point anyway.
Summer Decorating Trends
- Living Alfresco — Make your outdoor space an elegant living space worth sharing. Pier 1 Imports’ offers pretty neutrals and subdued patterns that can make your space the ultimate place for summertime relaxation.
- Summer Brights — Shine bright this summer with vibrant furniture, pillows and accessories that pop in new, vivid colors and trendy styles. This bold statement is sure to always keep it a party outdoors!
- Coastal Views — Our oceanic blues and glorious greens will take you away to a luxurious seaside hideaway.
I purchased the Whimsy Bright Paper Plates with matching napkins, Whimsy Bright Umbrella Picks, and the cute and colorful round placemats. We also got an umbrella to provide additional shade for our guests, but my favorite purchase was the most awesome Green Mesh Food Cover that did a great job protecting our brisket from the bugs. You can’t beat the selection at Pier 1 from the glassware to the outdoor furniture and pillows. I’m glad I asked about furniture because our car just wasn’t big enough and I found out there are a ton of ways to get what you need from Pier 1.
- In-store — See it, touch it, feel it for yourself, and our in-store associates love to toss around ideas on-the-fly!
- Ship-to-store — Browse from the comfort of your home, and pick-up in-store

- In-Home Delivery — Order furniture and large items on pier1.com, and have them delivered right to their door, or even have items assembled, within one to three weeks.
Our party was a blast! Not only did Rachel and her husband come, but Zippy and her son Ben were there as well. We also met a new couple who Rachel and Richie brought with them. It was great spending time with friends and meeting new ones too. Summer is the perfect time for a party and when you create an Outdoor Oasis it really puts everyone in the right mood. With the great Summer Brights theme we choose there were matching lanterns we were able to light once the sun went down that created a very romantic and relaxed mood. If you get a chance and if you are looking to create your own Outdoor Oasis have a glance at the lookbook for Summer 2014.
