I have long dreamt of living in a Pier 1 store. I love their use of color and scents. They always have beautiful pieces inspired by the cultures of different countries and I love that they carry earthy materials like real wood and bamboo. Lady and the Blog got a peek at what will be in stores this holiday season and it promises to be everything you love about Pier 1, with a fun, decadent twist.
Mosaic glass was used as the outside of a chic, gold cocktail shaker, Its the perfect conversation starter at your party. Rich maroons and reds were seen in trays, ornaments, pillows and glasses, as well as candles. If you’re looking for a change from the traditional ornaments, Pier 1 will have leopard and zebra print balls and cars for under $5, as well as whimsical penguin his and hers pieces. Your classic bell ornament is made fancy with a feathered head. There’s also richly decorated pillows for the couch. One looks like a fabric envelope with a gold ornament closure. Another is a multicolored mix of circles. My favorite was a rich, turquoise one with black feather detailing.
I’m loving their update on the traditional stocking. They did a fluffy reindeer with sexy eyes and long legs. The stocking part is on his back! You can choose to hang him the regular way or stand him on his legs. How cute! For your front door, Pier 1 will be offering a green wreath shaped like a peace sign and made from ornaments. There’s also a fun, colorful welcome mat that the kids are sure to love.
While you’re there getting all these goodies for your house, don’t forget to pick up presents for loved ones. For the fashionista who has too much jewelry, check out the richly embroided jewelry boxes. For the business woman who has a girly side, try the silkscreen snakeskin business card holder that comes in 5 colors. They even have scarfs for, well, everyone, in black, red, gray, blue and lilac. For your mom, check out the red and leopard body wrap blanket with sleeves.
Most of the Christmas items will be in stores in October, just in time for the holidays.
