#Pier1OutdoorParty and $25 Gift Card Giveaway – ends 6/16 #MC #Sponsored

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.


A few weeks back we held an Outdoor Oasis Party that was sponsored by Pier 1 Imports. Unfortunately, the day we held the party it rained and rained, and when it finally cleared up it was so muggy out. We were outside for a bit, but most of the party was held inside. I had the party planned for a few weeks and we had several people who RSVP’d so I couldn’t change it due to the weather, so we just went with it!

On my trip to Pier 1 Imports, I fell in love with the Outdoor Dining Sunny Floral Melamine line. They were all super affordable and durable, so I picked up quite a bit. Check out my haul!

I got a beverage dispenser, melamine bowls, melamine serving bowl, appetizer plates, paper plates & napkins, and some acrylic goblets. I will say shopping at Pier 1 Imports with a set budget is hard to do, I really wanted everything in site!

After consulting with my fabulous friends about our Outdoor Oasis party, we all decided to have a Mexican themed party, so that’s what we went with. Everyone I know, loves Mexican food, and I really think it mixed well with the Sunny Floral colors. Before I headed out to go shopping for the food, I headed over to  Pier1.com and Pier 1 on Pinterest for some outdoor party inspiration.The day before the party I went shopping and gathered up everything I’d need for the party.

The platters and bowls were just perfect to display all of our food on. In case you’re wondering, we had guacamole with chips, pepper jack cheese ball with crackers, mexican cream cheese roll ups, Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers, and Strawberry Lemonade Moscato. My guests loved all of the melamine dishes. We talked about them for a little bit. We all have children, so having dishes that aren’t breakable is something we all really look for.  One of my favorite dishes that was served (not pictured) was a Tres Leches Cake that my dear friend Amelia brought to the party. SOO GOOD! Our Mexican #Pier1OutdoorParty was a hit!

After the rain let up, we headed outside for a little bit, it was so muggy though, so I didn’t have a chance to grab very many pictures. It was 90 degrees out with about 100% humidity. We weren’t outside for very long.

Here’s our littles out in the yard conversing about our party!


I need to head back to Pier 1 Imports and grab some more of their Outdoor themed products as I LOVED so much of it, but I couldn’t buy everything all at once. Here’s some of the items I plan on picking up when I head back!

Floral Pagoda Umbrella
Love Birds Doormat
Sanibel Lanterns
White Lantern String Lights
