We celebrated my mom’s birthday recently. We usually like to drive my parents places that they don’t get to go to on a regular basis, so this birthday weekend was no exception. I think we tired the parents out but hopefully they had some fun in the process.
There’s a nursery and gift shop in Corona Del Mar called Roger’s Gardens. It has a great selection of plants, patio furniture, pots, knowledgeable staff and a great gift boutique. They also decorate for seasonal gifts and decor, so the Halloween Boutique had just opened this same weekend. If you like Halloween, this is sure to spark your creativity! Mom loves this place, so it was a good idea to take her there.
The theme this year for the Halloween boutique is “Something Wicked This Way Comes” and it’s truly like entering a magician’s tent with a maniacal display of whimsy, gross, scary, absurd and glittery objects. Heaven.
Beware – tons of pics to follow! If you can’t visit this year, then I’ll bring the store to you here.
Being a marketing person, I look at signage way too much even when I’m personally shopping. They had my attention with old timey fonts and ribbon motif. Well done, Roger’s Gardens!
AND…those pumpkins! Love! They had a variety of pumpkins, different shapes and colors scattered around the nursery.
It was 100 degrees outside, but the pumpkins made me long for cooler weather so I can comfortably cook in my kitchen again.
