Memorial Day Americana Backyard Bash with Pier 1 Imports
Memorial Day … a day to remember our heroes who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. And what better way to do that than to celebrate their lives with family, friends, and a backyard bash!
As I mentioned before, hubby and I love throwing parties and having friends over during the summer and hanging out in the backyard, swimming or having a BBQ. But since we moved in a few months ago, we haven’t really had the time to do anything special to spruce up our patio and make it more inviting for guests. However, this past Memorial Day weekend, I knew that all had to change, and being a military family and a huge Pier 1 Imports fan, I knew I could find something to help create the perfect ambiance and bring our outdoor gatherings to life. So I headed to the nearest store (about 30 minutes away here in El Paso) for some seating, coffee table, and fun accessories featuring my favorite – an “Americana” theme.
One of my favorite items I found that I just absolutely had to have was this awesome Galvanized Tray with woven flax handles! I carried the pitcher and the drinks (completely full!) out to the patio without an issue – the handles make it especially easy. I don’t know where this tray has been all my life.
I served simple appetizers – pretzel sticks, corn chips, spinach and artichoke hummus, and fruit punch.
