Spring Shopping at Pier 1 Imports ~ Getting the Outdoors Ready for Entertaining

Spring Shopping at Pier 1 Imports ~ Getting the Outdoors Ready for Entertaining

This post brought to you by Pier 1. All opinions are 100% mine.

Outdoor furniture and decor has arrived at Pier 1 signaling that exciting time of year to spruce up for warm weather and outside entertaining!  A few months ago I had the pleasure of  shopping for my Pier 1 holiday must haves, that I was totally thrilled to be invited back to check out and share some of the spring and summer goodies available.
It’s all about making the outdoors as inviting and cozy as the indoors and Pier 1 makes it easy to create a backyard escape with some fabulous collections and fun key pieces this season. Vintage, Classic, Modern, Global – however you describe your look, Pier 1 has a collection just for you.
Mix and match the sleek, modular pieces from the spa-inspired Ciudad Collection. Or go for the crisp, classic Santa Barbara Collection that comes with a bistro table for all those tasty snacks you whip up. For richly-detailed timeless pieces, consider the Coco Cove Collection  – m- – Then sit back and relax; Hand-woven construction, fully wrapped legs and rust-resistant iron frames keep these collections looking fresh and sophisticated despite the rain, shine and everyday outdoor life. Many of the pieces are actually indoor/outdoor too – so if you like the ever popular look of natural elements such as rattan and wicker or a fun pop of bright fun color –  don’t overlook these seasonal finds – you just might find that perfect chair or rug!
The iconic Pier 1 Papasan has evolved to the outdoors as well – with  indoor/outdoor construction and new styles. I am totally loving the Swingasan – doesn’t that just scream instant fun! and speaking of new updates check out the gorgeous patterned papasan cushions above –  {i.love. these}
If you have the furniture pieces already in place there are many accessories that provide easy instant updates to your outdoor living spaces. Outdoor cushions are a simple, commitment-free way to update your existing furniture. They’re colorful, textured and easy to change. All Pier 1 outdoor pillows and cushions are soft and luxurious enough for indoors, but  , they’ve been treated to resist weather and fading so they’re tough enough for life out on the patio. 
Add pops of color with lanterns in any size, hanging lanterns in every hue, floating LED candles, tabletop oil burners — and my summertime favorites – torches and solar-powered garden stakes along with citronella-scented candles that’s almost a requirement during parties and picnics .
It’s easier than ever to quickly update your space let your individual personality shine with Pier 1’s tabletop and place-settings. {I seriously spend hours browsing this section of the store putting fun combinations together in my head }   From formal to fun, From formal to fun
From formal to fun, picnics to parties… brunches, dinners,and everything in between – there are so many looks and virtually no rules to combining your favorite pieces.
I love having the option of purchasing individual dinnerware pieces too – just a few salad plates and a couple patterned pieces here and there can dress up solid tableware instantly.
One of favorite new patterns for the upcoming season is the Suzani Medallion Collection. Suzani is a type of decorative tribal textile that originated in the countries of Central Asia. The Suzani Medallion draws inspiration from the colorful floral and sun/moon motifs that frequently occur in Suzani design. I love the array of beautiful colors that would coordinate so well with my red party umbrellas – don’t you think?
A few other top picks that caught my eye include the Kaeden Indoor/Outdoor Rug    .   along with the coordinating indoor/outdoor cushions and pillows. These are those one of kind Pier 1 finds that are sure to do quickly. The pattern is a softly colored wreath and floral design and so pretty in person!
I am totally into lanterns and Pier 1 never disappoints – especially with these new oversized Black Metal Pierced Lanterns . I can just imagine the dramatic gorgeous glow these beauties would cast on any porch or patio.
Other key pieces I would love to add to our deck this year include the Coco Cove Outdoor Serving Cart   for stylish entertaining and the Ciudad Outdoor Mocha Trunk perfect to tuck away all the toys that make their way outside for the summer.
So what’s on your spring shopping wish list this season?
