I’m back with some more pictures from our Texas vacation. If you missed the first post you can check it all out here (including where to find amazing beach front rental houses, for reasonable prices!) We spent 5 nights on the coast in Galveston, then we packed everything up and headed to WACO! I took tons of pics, so I’m breaking it up into two posts and today I’ll be sharing some really cute garden ideas from Magnolia Silos.
We arrived at the Silos after lunch and it was already fairly crowded. It was a Thursday afternoon, so I’d hate to see how crowded the place gets on the weekend! My first impression was that Chip and Joanna took care of every. little. detail. I mean, even the garbage cans were gorgeous! The amount of planning and execution it would take to pull off designing a venue of this size (approx 1 full block) just boggles my mind!
Our first stop was this cute little Seed + Supply store just next to the Silos. This is where Joanna has all her gardening related items and decor for sale. There are real air plants, succulents, seeds and other items displayed. Things were a little pricey, but that could just be my frugal self being picky 🙂 Everything was VERY nicely displayed. I would like to shake the hand of whoever does her merchandising. Everything is SO gorgeous, and would give Anthro a good run for their money! The only downside is this little store is tiny. I mean, it’s about the size of my living room & dining room combined. Which doesn’t leave a lot of wiggle room for people to shop.
And just outside the Seed + Supply store, they have a cute little greenhouse with baby chickens for sale! oh the cuteness!
The grounds surrounding the Seed + Supply store are filled with raised beds and cute little flower gardens. It really is amazing how nice it all looks. It makes me wonder how many people they have on their landscaping/gardening staff. My parents own a greenhouse & nursery business and I know first hand the amount of work (and sweat) it takes to keep all those flowers looking so gorgeous!
I love the way Joanna uses repurposed items as planters. I’m not for sure, but I think this pic below is an old pig feeder 🙂 It makes such a statement filled with pretty flowers! So the moral of the story here, is keep your eyes peeled at your local flea markets and antique stores for some rusty old junk and fill them with flowers!
The bakery was super crowded the day we were there, but I did take some quick picks of their pretty greenery.
That wraps up all the outdoor pics! I’ll share the rest of the indoor retail space of the Magnolia Market & Silos next week, so be sure to check back! And if you’re still looking for a cute gift idea for Mother’s Day, I’ve started creating tshirts on Amazon. They’re only $16.99 w free Prime shipping. And they’re available in 5 colors. I’d love for you to check them out 🙂
