Before you start, I would talk with some real estate agents who work in your target market. They can advise you whether or not your project will generate the WOW factor you desire.
In some locations tile patio is a BAD idea due to weather.
If you are really looking for WOW factor I think you need a cohesive design idea - I've seen some nice mosaic style 'carpets' this may be a good way to go since it would be geometric with repeating patterns.
If I were you I would save the effort and craigslist the tiles, but that's just my opinion, cause I'm jealous of such a fun and creative project.
BTW - use the 'search' function on this site for outdoor tile. There are at least 1 very good thread covering the issues. :)
