Escape the stress #WorldMarketSweeps

Having the kids home all summer is very nerve-wrecking and stressful…some days I just need to get away.  But how can I?  By creating my own little oasis!  I was given the opportunity to create an oasis in my own yard by visiting World Market and spending $75.  Now, I love looking at World Market, but hadn’t been in there in at least a year.  I don’t know why, but I haven’t had the time to stop in.  I was SO excited to go check it out and see what I could come up with.  I decided instead of creating my oasis in the backyard, I would use our patio off the master bedroom.   A little escape where the kids don’t have access to!  I figured this would be a great place for my husband and I to relax in the evenings.

Here is what I’m working with:

I wasn’t sure what I was going to buy at World Market, I mean I hadn’t been there in quite some time.  I headed in and was so surprised at how amazing the selection was!  I walked around and found some great items!

The colors were so bright and inviting, I knew I’d be able to take our patio and make it something special with all that they had to offer.  I first found a rug that I fell in love with and then started to get accessories.  I wasn’t sure what to get after a while, I walked around just looking at everything.  I asked for the help of a sales associate and she was amazing! She walked me through and helped to show me how to put different colors together to make it look amazing.  Yay!

I bought this rug for $19.99:

Then this placemat for $2.99, plate for $3.14, glasses for $2.99/each and parasol picks for $2.99:

These fans were just $3.99 each:

these gorgeous glass hanging lanterns were only $2.99 each!  I bought matching purple candles to go inside that were $0.99 each!

and last but not least, what the amazing sales associate helped me pick out last was these great lantern lights for just $16.99!

When you put it all together, you get this amazing purple and orange creation to relax, drink a fun drink along with having a little snack on your cute new plate!  Here is the finished product:

The setting is nice, quiet and relaxing.  I love the carpet, which rolls up and can be taken to the beach or park or whatever.  The fans will help to keep us cool while we relax and doesn’t ever oasis need parasols in it’s drinks?!?
