Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1 Imports. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.
Recently we had my son’s class over for a year end Ice Cream Party! It was also a great time to showcase the little outdoor oasis I created recently with finds from Pier 1 Imports.
You might gasp too because there is some color out here! Not just neutrals for this neutral-loving girl!
I also added two blue cushions to my seating area. They feel like chenille but they are outdoor pillows, amazing!
And did you catch it? Yes, yes, I know! I actually bought something red! It’s amazing for me.
Well, it goes with the coral cushions I’ve had for years and really brings the whole seating area together so I’m quite happy.
And it’s a handy place for a drink or a plant pot or two.
Once the kiddos arrived it was full on ice cream chaos which translated means FUN.
An ice cream party is such an easy thing to throw in the summer with kids. Just get buckets of ice cream, cones and different toppings and you’re ready to go.
For the adults, I served wine, guacamole and chips as well as bocconcini and tomatoes drizzled with some salt, fresh chopped basil and olive oil.
The kids loved the ice cream especially these two besties.
The weather was so-so that day but it didn’t prevent some sprinkler fun.
Or some bouncy castle fun.
All in all, it was a great end to the school year and a great way to kick off summer!
