My Pier One Outdoor Party {Plus GIVEAWAY}

My Pier One Outdoor Party

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.

Pier One party crowd

Every Memorial Day, we like to have a fun outdoor party and invite friends of all ages. This year I was invited by Pier One to showcase some of their outdoor items, and I was thrilled to be able to do it.

I decided to go with a patriotic theme, so it was a no-brainer to pick out lots of red, white, and blue items.

Pier One beverage tub in action

My favorite is this Pier One beverage tub. It kept the drinks handy and at the perfect height for everyone to quickly grab what they wanted. I placed it between the food table and the drink table.

Pier One food table

Pier One Drink Table

It was a popular place to hang out.

Pier 1 party crowd

Don't you love the paper lanterns I hung above the tables? I picked up those at Pier One, too.

Pier One drink dispenser

The Pier One beverage dispenser was perfect for ice cold lemonade. I love that it has that Mason jar look! It fit in perfectly with my party!

Pier One straws

I snagged these adorable paper straws at Pier One, too.

Pier One straws in glasses

They added a fun touch.

Pier One Stars

I also picked up these little red, white, and blue stars to hang around to accentuate the patriotic theme.

The stars also gave a little weight to the drink table banner to keep it from flapping in the wind.

Pier one fun zone

I had a "fun zone" for kids, and I put sidewalk chalk, bubbles, pinwheels, bouncy balls, Pop-Its, and glow sticks in an old chest. The kids loved this!

Pier One hanging candles

As the sun started to set on my party, the fun continued and my Pier One hanging candles added some fun lighting.

Friends, food, flags, and fun. What better way to celebrate a patriotic holiday?

Now, Pier One would like to give one of you a $25 gift card to help you celebrate at your next party!

To enter to win, simply leave a comment below telling me what you would choose from Pier One if you win. The winner will be notified on or before June 18th.

*Special thanks to Rustic Redneck Designs for their party planning services!

    I love the Mason jar look of the beverage dispenser. My family is really less formal and a lot of the beverage dispensers I have seen have a formal look to them and wouldn’t really look that great at barbeque parties or even at the many birthday parties we have. I may have to get on over to Pier One to get one!! (Hopefully with a $25 gift card!!)
