Hubby and I love throwing parties and having friends over for cookouts, especially during the summer. However, our patio space hasn’t exactly been the most welcoming. I’ve always known that I wanted to do a patriotic theme (and fitting as we are a military family), so I decided to give Pier 1 Imports a look and see if I could find anything with an Americana feel.
This is my patio space before I hit up Pier 1 Imports (pretty drab, huh? We live in El Paso, Texas, so the rock wall you see is pretty common in these areas).
To my delight, Pier 1 Imports actually had everything I wanted for this transformation (and then some)! From pillows to decor, they had everything I had in mind for my patriotic-Americana idea.
And this awesome Galvanized Tray … with the cool woven flax handles!
Another favorite of mine was this white Capiz Shell Vase, which inspired me to use it outside, rather than indoors, because I knew the outdoor lights would reflect against it. And it matches my rock wall 😉
