My Smoothie & S’mores #Pier1OutdoorParty
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.
I miss going shopping with my mom. We’ve been apart for about six years now and while technology is awesome to easily stay in touch for chit chat, we don’t get to go shopping together like we used to. She visited us recently and I was so excited that she could help me pick out my items at Pier 1 for my Smoothie & S’mores party. She is great at planning and decorating!
Here is what we picked out. Do you see a theme here? Beachy of course! Well it’s not entirely beachy, but summer-y in the beachy blue and green colors.
I wanted a Summer party to celebrate school being out and saying goodbye to our neighbors because we are moving soon. I wanted something kid-friendly and easy. Smoothies and S’mores was right up my alley and definitely Summer food!
Let me show off my items close up…
I needed candles since this was an evening get together. The Starfish Tealight Holders with the Sea Air Tealight Candles made a festive look and put off a nice aroma.
I can’t forget the Crackle Lantern which hung in the background. It would have been fun to grab more of those in the many colors it came in.
What made my Smoothie Party fun was that everyone got to design their own! I had every kind of fruit imaginable, but other goodies to mix up. All the kids got a kick out of telling me what they wanted. yum!
Love all of these products you see above ~ the Trellis Flower Basket Bowl was one of my must-haves as I was shopping because I loved it so! The Glass Serving Bowl was perfect for my strawberries and pineapples with the Spring Floral Picks sticking out. The little Individual Bowls I bought five of, one of each of my family, because I thought they would be fun to make ice cream sundaes in the future. I wonder who will get the pink one? ha! Can’t forget to tell you about the Coastal Coral Paper Plates and Napkins and bendable Whimsy Bright Straws that opened to umbrellas – they were a hit!
No really, the hit of the party was this Mason Jar Set & Caddy. Most of kids received one for their smoothie. They had to write their intials on the front so they could tell whose was whose, even though each glass was a different color. Aren’t they great?!
Last but not least, the item that has quickly become a family favorite. The Glow In the Dark Owl Windchime. He hung on the gazebo during the party, but is now resting on my front porch. Isn’t he the cutest?
We all had such a fabulous time at my Smoothie & S’mores party and am thrilled that I thought of this outdoor theme to show off the new Summer Pier 1 products. You did good mom! Wish you were hear for the party too.
Did an item catch your eye you must have?
