This post brought to you by Pier 1. All opinions are 100% mine.
Summer is always slow to arrive here in the Pacific Northwest. We're still in the cold and rainy spring season but with all these flowers and trees blooming we know that warmer weather will eventually beckon us outdoors and onto the porch and deck.
Have you taken a look at Pier 1's outdoor furnishings lately? They have some really cute indoor/outdoor wicker chairs that look so wonderfully comfy. Add a cushion for each, a side table, maybe a Papasan or Swingasan chair and call the family for a BBQ! I've always loved Pier 1 for their unique and colorful items, haven't you?
There's nothing better in the world than lazing away the day under the patio umbrella, reading a good book and relaxing on a lounger. Oh, and don't forget the cold beverage! Pier 1 Imports doesn't just have wicker chairs either. Take a look at their colorful stacking chairs, outdoor rugs and suave metal tables and benches. Be on the alert for Pier 1 Tweetups in a city near you too.
I probably don't need to remind you, but Mother's Day is May 8th. In thoughtful gift giving circles that day will be here in the blink of an eye. Has mom been hinting for a new umbrella for the deck? I'm thinking we need two new cushions for our high back chairs on the front porch.... Seating, wall decor and rugs that can be used indoors or outdoors, that certainly conveys "wow factor" to me.
