Holiday Decorating with Pier 1

This post brought to you by Pier 1 Imports. All opinions are 100% mine.

As soon as Thanksgiving was over, the first thing on my mind was…. ” it’s officially time to get ready for the Holidays”!

Baking….Entertaining….Decorating….BuyingGifts….Wrapping!

The last few years I’ve been trying to update our holiday decorations. After 24 years of marriage, you tend to accumulate a lot of Christmas decor that’s “past it’s expiration date” ! lol So, needless to say I was just thrilled when Pier 1 invited me to visit their stores and check out their seasonal holiday decor and holiday gifts. They didn’t have to twist my arm…..Pier1 is one of my favorite stores to shop for a little holiday sparkle and cheer!

I {big puffy heart} LOVE

Pier1 Holiday Decor at TidyMom.net

but my heart also flutters for……

while the child in me cries for this…..

The Pier 1 website is a HUGE source of inspiration. I love the “Idea Room” where they inspire me with Entertaining Ideas, Decor Tips, Gift Ideas and more.

Of course you can shop online, and even save with their Daily Dealy coupon to use in store – a new coupon is posted EVERY DAY with mind blowing savings!

My daughter and I were like kids walking into Disney World for the first time from the moment we pulled in front of the store.

We were blown away by the gorgeous displays, bold sparkle, lights and color! Pier 1 really has such amazing stuff in their store right now, the hardest part was actually picking just a few things.

The amazing displays offered endless inspiration!

We oohed and ahhhed from the gorgeous table settings ………

to ornaments……..

to candles……

to festive disposable dinnerware ……


to FABULOUS gifts and stocking stuffers……

and plenty to wrap it all up in and make your holiday gifts look GORGEOUS!


The Red and Green Gift Box was a personal favorite of my daughter’s with the glitter, polka dots and big red bow….. what’s not to love!

Along with something new for our kitchen table, I knew I needed some fun holiday place mats. We fell in love with the layered look using these snowflake place mats.

We chose the red snowflake place mats to layer with some green place mats I already had. They are the PERFECT addition to the the other items we chose for the center of our table.

By the time we left the store with our goodies, my wish list had grown rather large.

So just in case your wondering what to get ME for the holidays….I’ll help you out with a few of my favorite Pier 1 things!

During the months of November and December, you can support Toys for Tots by dropping off an unwrapped toy and/or making a cash donation at the register.

Thanks again Pier 1!! I’ll be back soon!
