Pier 1 Is A Part of Our Family Tradition

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 Imports. All opinions are 100% mine.

This is the first time my younger sister, Ima, will host Christmas dinner in their home here in Arizona. Last year, they  joined us in Houston, Texas for their first Christmas here in America. This year, because of her recent surgery, they will not be able to do the long drive to Houston, it would be too tedious. Instead, my husband, I and our three nieces drove to Arizona from Texas to join them for a family get-together.
The thing is, though she is able to plan thoroughly for the Christmas dinner, she won't be able to completely  execute the plan because her recent surgery renders her incapable of walking long distance and lifting heavy objects. Hence the appointed second in command -me! Am not the expert but I do have ideas to share since I have been doing this for a long while now. I'm familiar with how and what to prepare, and where to get things.

As per my experience since I hosted my first Christmas dinner in 2003, some investments go a long way. Thus, it is important to make a list of the "must haves." I remember purchasing a starter set that consists of a dozen red wine glasses and red plates from Pier 1. I did not buy a lot since we only had less than ten guests on our very first Christmas dinner here in America. But since those wine glasses were a hit, I was very much encouraged to purchase some more the next year. It was well worth my investment. It was such a hit that my husband and I made it our Christmas gift to some of our friends. It was so heartwarming that because our friends noted how much I love my Pier 1 red wine glasses, for holiday gifts some of them purchased some other dinner ware items from the same store, that would best complement my red wine glasses. The gifts ranges from dainty napkins and durable napkin rings, to table runners and soup bowls. I now have a lovely collection of beautiful Pier 1 items that has become a wonderful part of our traditional Christmas dinner.

Likewise, my sister is starting a life here in America, I would love her to have wonderful things that will be part of their family tradition.

By the way, 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 Pier 1's register.
Guys, please continue to spread holiday cheer by liking Pier 1 Imports on Facebook. For every new fan they get, they will donate $1 to Toys for Tots.
