Tiki Things at Pier 1 Imports

My dear friend Curiouslaydee tipped me off that Pier 1 Imports had a selection of tiki wares for the summer, so of course I had to go check it out.

The Pasadena location I went to had everything in a display up front. I wasn’t too impressed with these cartoon-y signs ($17 a piece), but some of their other items were pretty nice.

Like this “vintage tiki” sign ($10), as it’s billed on their web site, which led me to find this somewhat bizarre copywriting gem: “Having a giant, living tiki man at your doorway is one option. But these Vintage Tiki Signs are much cuter, more welcoming, and way easier to find.” Mmm…ok.

These colorful tiki napkins and toucan plates will be perfect for the debut of my tiki bar, which perhaps may actually happen now that I’m back from gallivanting around Chicago and Orlando (with plenty tiki things to post about).

I adored these parrot photo holders, they reminded me of their fine feathered friends from The Enchanted Tiki Room. Four bucks a pop, if I read that price tag correctly.

I also thought their tropical table setting was lovely, especially the brocade patter on the chairs. Too bad that glass pineapple-shaped votive holder alone will set you back $30.
