Backyard spice + Pier 1 Giveaway!

One of the things on my spring to-do list has been finally outfitting my backyard with a little more style. With my table and garden in place, I was pretty much there - it just needed some personality.

So when Blogher asked if I'd be interested in checking out the new summer collection at Pier 1, I jumped at the chance. I'm already a fan of Pier 1 for party supplies, candles and tabletop items but I hadn't thought about them for outdoor. Off to the store I went.

The store is a riot of color now - really rich oranges, bright greens and the bright patterns that Pier 1 is famous for. It certainly put me in a festive mood browsing their pillow wall. I was seriously lusting after a hanging orange cushion swingasan chair until I remembered that I don't have a shady tree to hang it from - shattering my mid store fantasy session. Then I spotted the pagoda umbrella...




When I spotted this spice colored pagoda umbrella, I stopped dead in my tracks because it was just perfect for the patio and Japanese inspired garden we have.

Not having a lot of room back there, this was a great way to add something functional as well as pretty with a great splash of summer color. I stepped a few more feet and found these matching petal outdoor pillows that I think work great with the navy cushions I already had.

Another plus was that Pier 1 delivered it all straight to my doorstep (for a fee). Not wanting to lug all this stuff on the subway ride home was a big bonus for a city dweller like me.

Mr. Limestone set it all up and the umbrella was unfurled. It was the perfect size for my table for 6 providing great shade in my southern facing garden. Love! Of course we had to invite a few friends over for an impromptu barbeque to celebrate right away. Maybe next time we'll break out the fire pit for some urban backyard s'mores!

    I'd get a yellow umbrella, a poly stone umbrella stand, and the boots planter.  Our patio has full sun, so we need some shade for comfort in the summer.  On the other hand, all of our planting beds are at least part shade, so the patio is my one chance to grow full-sun flowers!

    I'm working on making my outdoor space more usable for entertaining.  So I'd go for the Catalina Cove Floral Director's Chair Cover, the Green Metal Beverage Holder and a couple green garden stools (I love those!).

    I'd get the pavilion pillow, the garden stools and the bright turquoise umbrella! We have some basic patio stuff but those pieces would help us bring the "fun" to the space with color.

  4. LOVE Pier 1 Imports! If I were to win I would get the following items: I can't get enough of large lanterns and the last time I was in the store I eyed up and down the White Wooden Floor Lantern. I also LOVE the red metal beverage tub it would be perfect for outdoor entertaining. Ahhh so many great items... and the last one would be the bamboo tasting party starter set because I've always wanted this for entertaining!

  9. I could really use new pillows outdoors and indoors.  :) The Calliopi Maui cushions would make my day.  The outdoor Swingasan Chair would be at home in our huge backyard tree.  We could swing while daddy grilled.  And the Kalika folding table would fit right in with the beautiful metal folding chairs I have on my deck that I got at Pier 1 YEARS ago....and still love love love!

    I'm hoping to move this summer, and actually have a yard to enjoy! So what I'd love would be: a podasan swing to enjoy cuddling my daughter; a santa barbara rocker for the same; and a catalina cove floral pillow to put on the rocker! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. We just bought a new home that has a pretty large patio. I'd love to get the Cuidad chair, corner chair, and ottoman in some sort of combination for seating and to somewhat enclose the patio with the Modular Cushion. I'd also choose the Chili Market umbrella to add some shade.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'd choose:
    1. Ciudad Corner Chair- this item reminds me of the resort we go to in Aruba!
    2. Ciudad Ottoman- a girl needs a place to rest her gams!
    3. Red Metal Beverage Tub- this would be the perfect place for my pitcher of White Peach Sangria! 
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

    I am dying for the Ciudad counter table, Ciudad stools, and a fun, bright 7 ft. umbrella. I actually have been asking my hubby this week if we could make these purchases once I saw their sale :) Our deck is pretty small, so the counter height table and stools could be nestled nicely into a corner.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Jackie10:14 AM

    I'd get a green umbrella, some of the stacking armchairs in blue, and the taza round outdoor table.  We are putting on a big deck and patio out back and have neutral furnishings and could use a pop of color!

  19. jaime eng10:15 AM

    My outdoor space lacks color and pizazz.  My Pier1 wishlist would be their brightly colored hammered drinkware (who can resist shatter resistant glasses??), the really colorful Catalina Cove Flower Rug to brighten up my pergola, and the Red Metal Beverage Tub - now I can finally invite people over! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would get the yellow stacking armchairs, the taza round table and a couple of those adorable petal pillows too!  (And about 10 other outdoor entertaining items!) They have so much cute stuff this season!

    I really like the Catalina cove tumblers, to keep condensation from getting everywhere when I have my ice-cold beverage; all the outdoor pillows are adorable, because I'm a sucker for pillows & bright colors are very "me". I also really like the catalina cove serving plates/platters/trays/etc. The colors are great, and melamine is good for outdoors where the hubby might drop a plate on the patio

  29. Sarah Ruby10:52 AM

    I'd choose the Pavilion chair cushions, the citronella stakes, and the pagoda umbrella!  After 6 years in a Manhattan apartment, we're finally moving to a place with a (small) backyard that I can't wait to decorate!

  30. I love all colors of the stacking chairs, the casbah chairs, and the chili market umbrella. We just moved into a new house and we have no outdoor furniture, so this would be perfect! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I'm in need of a new umbrella and the chili colored one would had a nice pop of color in the sea of green. The black metal lanterns flickering with scented candles would make for a peaceful, relaxing evening. Lounging outside is not complete without a drink in hand, so the double chamber drink dispenser add a extra bonus of choice.

    I have been needing a accent table and chairs for my front porch. I love the red stacking chairs and the red accent table Pier One has! Also, I would get a new outdoor rug. I really like the one with the mums, but there are so many great choices.

    i love the blue jeweled mini lantern!  would love to replace my doormat with the damask doormat.  and i'm really digging the green beverage tub.  really like the idea of having one of those.  although the kalicka folding chair is cute and that would be worth the giveaway and my own money :)  i have at least four or five more that i want to list, but i'll leave it at that.  the laterns are so adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'd pick the Outdoor Swingasan Chair, the Outdoor Green Pavilion Cushion, and the Outdoor Flatweave Rug.  I'd put all of this stuff in my sunroom, which I'm doing in orange and green but so far has one sad pillow and some wicker furniture found at a garage sale.  The Swingasan would be PERFECT hanging in the corner of the sunroom.

    Santa Barbara Outdoor Glider Settee - Mocha -

    I always wanted an outdoor space to hang out and enjoy the breeze and it
    glides!

    Ronan Pedestal Extension Table

    Due to a small apartment growing up we always had to eat dinner on folding
    tables and in the living room, this would've been apprieciated.

    Peacock Feather Rug

    Allergies make carpet a no go for me - but how i hate the feelling of cold

Hi - I need to revitalize the side garden in my home - so I could use the citron sette cushion, the Casbah chairs in red and I love, love, love the Daisy Swingasan - how adorable is that!  I can see my little grandson loving that (and soon my 2 month old granddaughter).  I will tweet this also - and I'll come back to let you know I did that!

    Thanks!

    I would replace our grotty old patio cushions with these: Indoor/Outdoor Yellow Pavilion Chair Cushion.  Come to think of it, our whole patio set is falling apart, so I'd grab four of these stacking chairs (Yellow Outdoor Stacking Armchair) for our smallish deck.  Well, if we're replacing the chairs, might as well get a new table, & I lurve this one: Kalika Folding Table

    Wow, I love everything that you chose at Pier 1.  You have very good taste.  Thanks for showing me the possibility to make
    my outdoor area pretty and enjoyable.  My
    top 3 picks for my must have list this summer from Pier 1 are:


     


    1)Pagoda Umbrella—Need some shades and I love this
    color.  It makes me happy just looking at
    it.


    (http://www.pier1.com/Catalog/SeasonsHolidays/tabid/975/CategoryId/860/ProductId/36693/ProductName/Pagoda-Umbrella/language/en-US/Default.aspx)


     


    2) Daisy Swingasan™ Chair—I know my kids would love to sit
    in this chair.  It’s totally gorgeous and
    cute. Hey, it matches my Pagoda Umbrella too!


    (http://www.pier1.com/Catalog/FurnitureLiving/tabid/981/CategoryId/983/ProductId/29474/language/en-US/Default.aspx?ProductName=Daisy-Swingasan%E2%84%A2-Chair)


     


    3)Doves on Pedestal Birdbath--My little girl adores birds
    and I’m sure this bird bath would attract many birds to our outdoor area.  I love it.

    Please enter me in your sweepstakes!  I'd get the striped umbrella, a stand, and some new dishware.  I like the Mexican looking set.  We have a screened in porch that we love, and just bought a few new chairs for the outside deck.  It's too hot out there!  I need an umbrella in order to enjoy it.   We get a lot of sun in our backyard.  I love your Japanese inspired patio.

    My 3 summer must-have items from Pier 1 are:

    Yellow Outdoor Stacking Armchair - I love the yellow POP! These would look fabulous on a patio or even in the grass as a seating area.

    Taza Round Outdoor Table - I love the size and design of this table. How cute would it be with two of the yellow stacking armchairs?

    Luster Glass Lantern - You've got to have some light for those evening outdoor get-togethers. I love these glass lanterns and their Moroccan inspiration.
