In the summer, we spend a lot of time on our back porch and in the pool. Most afternoons you will find me sitting in the shade while my girls are in the pool. Then in the evenings, we like to grill and eat outside. And on the weekends, we love to host friends and family to join us swimming and grilling.
Last month, I was invited to do a little shopping at Pier 1 in search of the perfect summertime accessories to liven up our little outdoor oasis. To make my porch more inviting, I was excited to add a few pops of color to our otherwise monochromatic porch. (One of these days what I really want is one of wicker sofas, but for this summer I was happy to add some color.)
After doing a little furniture rearranging to create myself a relaxing sitting area, K and I took a minute to relax before throwing our first summer party of the season to enjoy our new space. It is the perfect place for me to sit and watch the kids play in the pool, and it is also the perfect place for guests to relax during summer parties.
And really, it is so pretty!
Oh the drink possibilities!
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.
