3 Quick Tips for Having a Hot Summertime Soiree! #Pier1OutdoorParty

“I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for Pier1. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating in the #Pier1OutdoorParty campaign.”

I am always hosting parties at my home!  

We love preparing tasty good foods, good wine and at the kickoff for the Season of Summer I hosted a small party at my home where we tasted lots of delicious foods and I accented the party with some amazing items that I scored from Pier 1!  I have always been a big fan of Pier 1, they have the most beautiful items for the home inside and out!  But for this party, I was focused in the outside, making this a #Pier1OutdoorParty!

1. Invite Good People!

It is very important that you invite amazing people that make your Summertime Kickoff Party a success!  I invited some of the most important people in my life!  My Mother and my old college friend, Sammy came and was our official bartender!  He likes to call himself "The Modern Day Sam Malone."  I could not imagine a party without him!  He is fun and makes sure that I always choose good wine before the date of the party even gets set!

2. Have Amazing Food and Lighting!

A party just ain't a party if you don't have good food!  At my Summertime kickoff party I like to have lots of small bites!  We served small bites of home made Macaroni and Cheese, Ravioli and Olive Busters (Oilves that are stuffed with peppers and garlic)!  

Lighting is also very important, especially citronella lighting.  I picked up these adorable frog candles at Pier1 that doubled as good lighting as the nighttime came and to keep the bugs away, I decorated the table and the deck with several of them!

3. Have Great Drinks!

There always have to be great drinks to keep the party started and to keep people hydrated! 

Also, make sure that you pick up amazing Outdoor Decor to kick off your perfect summertime party at Pier1! 

I visit Pier1 at least once a week to get new pieces to keep my home updated, beautiful and chic!  I was fortunate enough to get coupons for my party and I was able to give 10% off coupins to my friends and family as well!
