Picnics in the Park with World Market


Now that the girls are out of school and pre-school, we have a lot of time during the day together. We’ve spent a lot of afternoons at the pool and at our neighborhood playground.  The girls love to help pack a lunch to take with us so we can spend all afternoon there.  And there’s something fun about eating outside.  

We don’t have a lot of cute picnic gear so I headed to Cost Plus World Market a few days ago to see if they had anything we might like.



 As soon as we walked into the store I could see the cutest sets of gear for outdoor parties! 




How fun are those?  I saw so many things I want to buy for a 4th of July cookout!  Look at all of these fun picnic set-ups:



There were food baskets, burger weights, french fry liners, picnic food trays and so many other fun items!  I could go nuts in this section alone.  :)

World Market has everything you could possibly need for a party, cook-out or get-together.  Furniture, outdoor and indoor decor, bed and bath items, food and drink and accessories. 

I found a green and aqua set I fell in love with and knew I’d found what I was looking for.  Here’s a look at the Rio set online:



I love it!  I spent a while trying to decide which items I had to have, but was so tempted to buy some of everything in the set.  I ended up buying the Ice Bucket, Bamboo Food Dome with Cover, Braided Placemats, Mason Jar Drink Dispenser and Insulated Collapsible Tote.



I brought everything home and couldn’t wait to start packing a picnic!  The girls helped me get some sandwich ingredients together and make some lemonade and then we took our pretty new World Market products out on a picnic at our neighborhood park.







I love it all!  And I’m going back for more.  :)   I saw a few things online at WorldMarket.com that I somehow missed while shopping with the kids. So I’m going to head back in a couple of days and get a few more things from this collection before they’re gone.

World Market is definitely my favorite place to shop for entertaining!  I can walk into the store without a single idea about what my theme should be or how to decorate and just go crazy.  There are coordinating sets to help the decorating-challenged like me or fun mix-and-match solids, patterns and florals.  I always have a great time shopping at World Market and leave with a lot of awesome products without spending a lot of money.



Right now, World Market has a HUGE sweepstakes going on – the Great Summer Getaway Sweepstakes.  There will be FOUR weekly Grand Prizes awarded of a Trip for 4 anywhere Southwest Airlines flies, Hotel Accommodations and a $500 World Market Gift Card! Can you imagine?!? What an awesome prize!  There are weekly winners through July 13, 2012 so be sure to head over and enter the Sweepstakes now!

But that’s not all!  World Market also wants to help us enjoy our summers a little more with their Buy & Fly promotion.  From now until July 13th, anytime you spend $20 or more in stores, you’ll receive a 15% off coupon for Southwest Airlines. That could save you a LOT of money this summer!
