Lovely Outdoor Dining with Pier 1 Imports {Giveaway}

We can never spend enough time at the Grandparents house and are always welcomed with heartfelt open arms.  During the summer months, schedules allow for spontaneous visits and we look forward to many large family gatherings.  Although I don’t have a yard of my own, I’ve experienced the specific sort of peace found in living by water – and a 40 minute drive out of NYC always provides the perfect respite.

When I was invited to work with Pier 1 Imports on a backyard design project, I wanted to focus on practical purchases that would highlight the natural beauty of the property.  I ultimately decided on the Neeley Bistro Set in red because of its bright, versatile functionality.  This set can be pulled up to the back patio prior to the official warm whether shift or pulled out to specific sections of the yard for an intimate dining experience.  With plenty of lake-loving little ones and a beautiful family of swans – there are always a few adults on watch.  This lovely dining set can easily be carried to the lake for swan gazing and kiddie supervising.

I had the set shipped to our local Pier 1 Imports store to avoid extra shipping costs – and I plan on adding coordinating outdoor tableware items in the future to build upon this existing purchase.  We are all happy with the added charm that this cheerful set provides.

Win It: Pier 1 Imports is giving away one $50 Pier 1 Imports Gift Card to one MB reader to join the decorating fun.  To enter, simply visit the rafflecopter below.  This giveaway is open to U.S. only and a winner will be randomly selected on May 30th and displayed on the below widget.  Best of Luck!

  86. jamielee kimball says

    I really like Pier One stuff. That bistro set above is super cute. It is a fine balance between practicality and versatility and this one fits the bill. There are very few sets that could be brought to the edge of a lake without scratches on your skin or in the bed of the truck. This is great, and I know all too often, when my little one wants to run around and play, me and dad would like to sit and have a place to put our things. Also, I think this would be a great little picnic upgrade. My little one would definitely benefit from the many distractions of wildlife while sitting on the edge of the yard. Nice review. 🙂
