With Memorial Day around the corner, it's time to dust off the patio furniture and get serious about outdoor entertaining this summer. Our digital influencers have you covered when it comes to design and decor inspiration for the outdoors - they recently teamed up with Pier 1 to get their backyards ready for the summer season and we learned a few things from them! From fruity drink recipes to decorative tabletops, their entertaining ideas (all possible with Pier 1!) will inspire you to throw your own soiree. Here are a few things we learned...

It's All About the Beverage
Oleander & Palm's Grapefruit Jalapeno Lime {Mocktail} Margaritas will steal the show. There's one thing guests will appreciate, and that's a delicious drink to enjoy. It's always a good idea to have something non-alcoholic on hand, so this mock-tail is a must-try.

Embrace Patterns
The Wandeleur blog did just that. Creating an outdoor space that's comfortable is super important. With Pier 1, they were able to create their own outdoor oasis on a budget, while also being super chic.

Pick a Theme
Sara of A Dose of Pretty and Melissa of Melissa Creates both know the power of a strong theme. Choosing a theme helps keep your creative vision focused and will guide decisions when planning a tablescape. Sara decided on beach inspired, surf style to transform her outdoor space. Island fruits became centerpieces and Pier 1 helped with the rest.

Unexpected Details
Served over palms? Yes, please. We love the way Anne Sage added palm leaves to her tablescape. Sometimes the little details can bring a table to life!
