Roger’s Gardens Halloween Boutique

GrimmTales Halloween Boutique??? Yep, it’s time! For me the sure sign that Fall is on it’s way is visiting Rodger’s Gardens Halloween Boutique. This year the theme is “Grimm Tales”  and it opens today, Friday, September 2, 2016.

My family and I have made a tradition of visiting this spectacular showcase. Each year, we look forward to the new theme and new chilling features each room holds.

I love gathering inspiration for our home with the works of artists like: Joyce Stahl,  Vergie Lightfoot and Nicol Sayer. These decorations go way beyond Pumpkins and gourds. These are pieces of art and are simply amazing.

The Grimm Tales theme takes you through forested rooms that display a completely new spin on classics like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and Hansel & Gretel.

While your visiting Roger’s Gardens be sure to stop by the brand new restaurant Farmhouse Cafe  Who wouldn’t want to eat here? The garden is beautiful and the restaurant supports an open feeling with all the charm that exists within the garden.

“Something Wicked This Way Comes” at Roger’s Gardens

2015 Halloween Boutique.

wpid-2014-10-20_10.33.42.jpg

 Surrounded by unseen forces, a mysterious traveling carnival has pulled into town. Tent doors flap amidst the dry, swirling autumn wind.  The night crackles with an odd vibration, as if a veil of peculiarity has settled over these hallowed grounds.  A maelstrom of sights, sounds, smells, and people…this is Halloween at Roger’s Gardens…this is Carnival.

Visiting the Halloween Boutique at Roger’s Gardens is now one of our Fall family traditions. There is something different in each nook and cranny. Every room features something different than the last.

Need a place for inspiration to get your “spook” on? This is it! In addition to pumpkins and gourds, look forward to seeing work from artists like: Eric Cortina, Scott Smith, Joyce Stahl, William Bezek, Tina Haller, Bethany Lowe, Vergie Lightfoot and Nicol Sayer.

Roger’s Gardens is Hauntingly Beautiful

If you haven’t decorated for Halloween yet there’s still time to get some Hauntingly Beautiful inspiration at Roger’s Gardens in Corona Del Mar.

wpid-2014-10-20_10.33.42.jpgLet me start by saying if you love gardens, you MUST visit Roger’s gardens. This place is unlike any garden center I’ve ever visited, it’s absolutely beautiful. The grounds are pristine, even the patio furniture area looks as if they serve sunday brunch there (it’s actually a shame they don’t). When you walk into the garden, there’s a train village that has been created around a tree. My girls loved it. Everything is lovely.

Now back to the original subject, the Halloween Boutique holds surprises in each turn and corner. It made me want to come home and spook up everything in my house. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so here it goes.

There are so many great and inspiring ideas, some make you think “I can do that”‘ but then when you really start looking around you notice that are some exquisite one of kind items. This boutique features work of some amazing artists like:  Eric Cortina, Scott Smith, Joyce Stahl, William Bezek, Tina Haller, Bethany Lowe, Vergie Lightfoot and Nicol Sayer. I took some pictures but my phone simply doesn’t capture how beautiful these pieces are. These are some of the pictures from Roger’s Gardens blog.
