Creating My Backyard Oasis with World Market #WorldMarketSweeps

by Carrie with Children with 25 comments

Summertime in our family means we spend a lot of time outdoors.  The last few weeks we’ve worked getting the backyard ready for fun-filled activities – cook-outs, parties and fun! With new grass and toys in place, I wanted to spruce up my old patio furniture with a new umbrella. With a great variety of outdoor decor, I packed up the family and headed to World Market.

With a variety of gifts, furniture, barware and outdoor decor – it was very tempting to stock up on supplies for a summertime party.  I loved all the drink mixes and festive plasticware – margarita anyone?  World Market knows what they are doing when it comes to entertaining!  The gift basket area was a big hit with my girls – we loved looking at all the great sauces and snacks!

I was excited to see that the outdoor umbrellas were on sale – hooray for a great deal!  There were many different styles and sizes to choose from – ranging from 5ft to 9ft umbrellas.  I was faced with a tough decision when it came to choosing a print, I loved the paisley printed umbrellas and there was a beautiful solid red one.  In the end, I went with a fun striped umbrella, filled with bright colors – I thought it would be a great addition to liven up my yard.

Once we got home, I fell even more in love with our new umbrella!  The bright and cheerful colors on it make me think of warmer weather and it does a great job of protecting me from the sunshine. It was an affordable price and the quality of the material is fantastic.  We are officially ready for summertime!

    World Market is one of my favorite stores in the world! It’s one of the few places I can find some of my husband’s favorite Asian and Hawaiian snacks. Plus, they’ve got some awesome decor and stuff that I can’t help but love!

    • Carrie with Children

      Yes – you are right! They have some really unique snacks that are hard to find other places! I love the large selection of chocolates too!

    We don’t have a World Market here, either, and now I’m bummed. That umbrella is gorgeous!

    The umbrella is gorgeous! I love bright colors, too. I hadn’t heard of World Market before, to be honest. I checked to see if there were any locations nearby, but sadly they don’t. They do have shipping and free shipping on some items though, so I’ll keep this one bookmarked!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks for the love about my umbrella! That stinks there aren’t any stores in your area – but yay for free shipping on some items! They make some really great things!

  • Melissa

    I love that bright and colorful umbrella!

  • Courtney

    This store sounds amazing. I wish they had one by me. I guess I’m too far as they didn’t even say anything was close to my zip code 🙁

    • Carrie with Children

      Boo Courtney! 🙁 There’s always online shopping, I guess!

  • Jenn @therebelchick

    Oh, I love all of the goodies you got! I wish we had one of these in Miami!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks! I could shop there all day – so much great stuff! 🙂
