{Backyard Refresh with Pier 1 Imports}


Remember last year when we were still in Chicago and Pier 1 Imports asked me to host a fun outdoor Moroccan dinner party?  Well, I am super excited to get to partner with them once again just in time for summer to refresh our LA roof deck with some bright accents just as the weather is warming up in time for an outdoor dinner party.

While our deck is pretty well outfitted, we are still lacking a few of those touches specific to outdoor entertaining.  One of my biggest pet peeves at a dinner party is a really hard metal or wood chair, so I knew that I had to get some cushions on our white metal dining chairs ASAP.   In addition to that, we’ve been on the hunt for an umbrella stand that rolls ever since I saw one at a resort.  Our deck gets impossibly hot during the summer, so I need to be able to move the umbrella from the chaises to the dining table with ease (and ease is not the place we are currently at with our stationary umbrella stand.)  Other than those two specific wish list items, I’ve been searching for a few fun items that can handle a summer filled with outdoor entertaining.  

Check out the after pictures with all the goodies I picked up:


I also picked up a selection of bright Moroccan-inspired tabletop d├ęcor that you can get some sneak peeks of in a few of the photos including some insane lanterns that remind me so much of wandering the markets in Marrakech.  I’ll show you all the fun dining related finds next week along with some delicious (and easy!) Moroccan recipes for the summer.

Find what speaks to you. See the Outdoor Living collection in stores or at And right now, Pier 1 is offering 20%-50% off all of their outdoor furniture, as well as 20% off all outdoor pillows and cushions!
